We’re on the final theme for Summer Read! For the last two weeks of the program we’ll be focusing on “Be” – have you borrowed anything recently that helped you with an issue or made you think of your life in different way? This theme is all about that. If you’re thinking about your spiritual self, thinking about a change in career, want to expand your interests by trying out a new hobby, drop into a branch and find something to quench that thirst for books!
We also have a lot of fiction that is applicable for the “Be” theme. Classics like “Jonathan Livingston Seagull,” newer best-sellers like “Life of Pi” and “the Shack,” and newer fiction like “the Opposite of Art” and “House of Secrets” would all be perfect for “Be” and might give you something to ponder.
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.
