    Summer. Read. Week 7

    Summer. Read. Week 7

    - 3 Comment(s)


    What have you always wanted to learn? To speak another language? To repair your own car? How about yoga? Or world history? Well, the library can help you learn how to do all these things and more! The problem will be deciding what to do first. Every time I walk through the library, I discover something else I would love to learn about. Check out books, CDs, DVDs and the E-library for all kinds of learning opportunities!

    So join the Calgary Public Library for a 9-week summer reading adventure. Each week we're diving into a new theme: explore, play, imagine, create, live, laugh, learn, grow, and… be. Together we’ll discover new books that will keep you reading all summer. We’ll post information about the weekly theme every Wednesday here on our Readers’ Nook blog and on our Facebook page.

    When you comment on our Summer. Read. Facebook posts, telling us what books or DVDs or CDs you’ve been enjoying, you’ll be entered to win great prizes. There are weekly prizes of leather-bound journals and CPL tote bags, as well as ten grand prize Kobo eReaders! You can also enter by filling out a paper ballot at your local library.

    You're entered for posting here and on facebook Rob! And yes, it's always good to be prepared. Although I have to admit that any time I read dystopic fiction, I think about how I would be one of the first to go...maybe I should check out 'The Long Emergency' as well!


    I'm learning how to getting as many knitting books for beginngers from the library has been very helpful. I just finished knitting my first item which is a baby hat.

    Not sure where you are supposed to enter this contest. Already left a response on facebook. Reading 'The Long Emergency' by James Howard Kunstler, because I want to know everything I can to be as prepared as possible when the brown stuff hits the fan!
