We hear you. We know you want eAudiobooks (demand was up 30% in 2018), but multinational publishers won’t cooperate. We can't access many eAudiobooks including those by Canadian authors like Louise Penny. #eContentForLibraries
Meet Sadie. She has picked out her books and would like you to read to her. Find her at our Mount Pleasant Branch on the first Thursday of the month from 5:30-6:30pm. ⠀⠀
Our #Paws4Stories program is for kids who are nervous about reading in front of others or just need a little extra practice. Sign your child up for a 15-minute one-on-one read-aloud session with a therapy dog and her human companion. ⠀⠀

We're thrilled to share that Joseph A. Dandurand is the 2019 Indigenous Storyteller in Residence!

A member of Kwantlen First Nation located on the Fraser River, Dandurand has been a storyteller since he was a young man. He has produced several plays for adults and youth and is the author of twelve books of poetry. ⠀⠀
Meet Dandurand at 7pm on Wed, Jan. 30th at the Central Library. ⠀⠀

Stumbled upon this in a back corner on Level 4. Get your card catalog scent hit too; it smells gloriously the same as ever: discovery. .

Wondering why you can’t borrow more eAudiobooks and eBooks? So are Canadian public libraries. We’ve got a plan to improve #eContentForLibraries – but we need your help to get the multinational publishers’ attention. 
Visit (link in bio) to learn about our plan.
Into the arts? Our song book collection, morph exhibition and musical instrument lending library are just a few of the resources, displays and equipment we have available for you for free.

Twelve year old Sadie wants to be a Librarian when she grows up. Here she is holding her USB that contains her first book trailer movie for the #HungerGames that she created in the #InspirationLab. Watch out Sadie, we might recruit you into the marketing dept. instead.. .
