    Summer. Read. Week Three!

    Imagine


    Let your imagination run wild at the Calgary Public Library with an abundance of titles to help you kick start your brain during the dog days of summer!

    Imagine distant worlds and alien races with our extensive science fiction collection. Look at alternative histories, historical fiction and virtually any fiction title to have yourself dreaming of complex characters living in faraway places. Whether your heart’s pounding to the dystopian future put forth by Suzanne Collins in The Hunger Games or you’re imagining a boy stuck on a lifeboat with a ferocious tiger in The Life of Pi, using your imagination while you read is great exercise for staying mentally sharp. Why let Peter Jackson tell you what the shire looks like in The Lord of the Rings when you can imagine it all on your own?

    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, and tell us what books or DVDs or CDs (etc!) you’ve been enjoying, you’ll also be entered to win great prizes. (CPL tote bags and Kobo Readers!) You can also enter by picking up a paper ballot at your local library.

    I used my imagination regarding temptation when I read The Devil and Miss Prym. The world renowned author, Paolo Coelho, continues to inspire.
