    by Robyn L - 2 Comment(s)

    According to Wiktionary, the word create means "to put into existence." What are you going to put into existence this summer? What sparks your creativity? Is it art? Photography? Writing? Reading? Cooking? Singing? Dancing? Join us this week for some great reads that will inspire your creativity!

    Hang out in our 700 section to find a wide selection of drawing, painting, and photography books...


    If writing is more your thing, our 808 section has a great variety of books on writing. Want to write a cookbook, romance novel, poetry, or screenplays? This is the spot for you!

    Don't forget to read biographies of your favourite creative people. This too will help ignite your creative juices.

    Imagine Winning an iPad Mini...

    - 4 Comment(s)

    Sometimes we think that imagination is just for children. But we all imagine how things could be different, whether we're eight or eighty.

    What do you imagine? That you're in Paris rather than mowing the lawn? That you're taller? Shorter? That you've won the lottery? That you're having Italian for lunch rather than a tuna sandwich? That you've landed your dream job? Or that you're as witty as the main character from your favourite novel?

    This week, celebrate the theme 'Imagine' by checking out something that stirs your imagination...whatever that may be!
