    Summer is here and the time is right for… being creative! The library has books, CDs, and DVDs to help you start all your creative endeavors. In addition, Freading, our newest eBook service, has lots of great cooking, crafts & hobbies, and gardening titles! Why not challenge yourself to take better photos, make delicious preserves, or create music with your iPad this week?

    Or take a moment to appreciate the creativity of authors like David Weber, who dramatically creates the world of Safehold in his series of the same name, or Michael Crichton, who crafted compelling plotlines in which regular people struggled against unfavorable odds.

    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 event page, 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.
