The Lord of the Library Cards
It's really amazing how Frodo's simple quest to check out books from the Calgary Public Library's Mount Doom branch caused so much trouble. I suppose it is understandable though. You can see in this photo how much everyone loves to read, so naturally they all wanted to get their hands on the One Library Card.

RAK

There's Still Time...
by Sadie on Youth Read 2013 - 0 Comment(s)
This summer I had the opportunity to help out those who were affected by the flood. My church group and I went down to Bragg Creek and cleaned out houses there for eight hours. It was really mind opening for me to be able to see how much I can make a difference in the lives of others, and how fortunate I myself am. All in all it was a great experience, and the woman who we were helping was extremely grateful to us.

Thanks for making my summer even more awesome!

RAK- My View

Week 5: The Zombies are Coming!
by PotterAlways713 on Youth Read 2013 - 0 Comment(s)

I think the idea for the RAK challenge was brilliant-- encouraging people to reach out and maybe brighten someone's day a bit. That being said, I feel like RAK should be just that-- random, not timed for a specific challenge. Basically, RAK should be automatic-- standing up for a friend, genuinely complimenting someone (especially someone you don't know very well or have had altercations with in the past), and saying a cheery hello to strangers on the sidewalk are things that should be regularly part of our lives. So yes, I love the idea of the RAK challenge, but I feel like we should be sharing these things with each other and encouraging one another for ideas of more we can do and to build community, not to complete each week to win a $250 gift card (but for the other challenges, winning stuff is awesome!!!!). 

Thanks everyone for listening/reading my personal opinion about random acts of kindness. Just something to think on, you don't have to agree! (:

You and I

You and I

You and I

 

A good friend of mine, Sarah,

Is very fond of China.

This is why, I invited her to take the plane,

To visit this country of fame.

 

You and I toured Beijing,

Climbing mountains, learning.

Eating all the specialities,

I remember, your's is the matcha ice cream.

 

After a day of transportation, in Fushun we arrive,

A city famous for his mine.

We read about war.

We danced at the park.

When it was time to leave,

This place left his mark.

 

A night in the train,

When we reopened our eyes,

Yanji stands with his korean signs.

Here, we ate, we talked, but the trip is coming to an end:

It was time to say good bye.

 

Sometimes we laughed,

Sometines we complained

But no matter what happened,

You and I toured China.

You and I toured China.

 

Replugged in Another Country

Week 4: Unplug
by Yao Xi on Youth Read 2013 - 0 Comment(s)

Almost for the whole summer I should, all electronics were unplugged for my part. This is because I was on a travel to China to visit my family and country. Later on, my family lend me a cellphone so that they can reach, but the very first day, without a dout, was without electronics.

My cousin, a friend from Monteal and I toured the Lama Temple the very first day my friend landed in China. Although my head was still dizzy from the time difference between China and Canada, I didn't fail to notice the elegance of the temple. Lama might seem to be weird name, but in reality, lama is to the tibetains what monks are to us. They didn't miss to elevate grandiose statues in the name of their Buddha. In this temple, it felt zen.
