“Chase the Book!”

February is “I Love to Read” month. For the entire month of February, we will be playing the Library version of “Chase the Ace.”  Each time you visit the Library, you are entitled to enter your name for one of the nine book draws.  The draw will be made on Feb. 28th.  Enter often!  Good Luck!


Spring into the Library!

Plans are currently in progress for children’s programming during Spring Break near the end of March.  Further details will be published here, on the Library website, or posted at the Library.


 What’s New?

Redemption:  Stories of Hope, Resilience and Life after Gangs by Anne Mahon has been donated to this Library through funds granted by the Winnipeg Foundation.  The support and partnership of the Manitoba Library Association was integral to the grant application and approval.  This book is being sent to libraries, correctional centres and support agencies where youth-at-risk and those desiring to exit gangs may frequent.  All author proceeds from this book are being donated to GAIN (Gain Action Interagency Network) to assist and support those who want to exit gangs.

Robert Chrismas, a frontline officer on challenges and changes gives us Canadian Policing in the 21st Century.

From Jackie Ferrier, The Dog Aggression System Every Dog Owner Needs – from leashes to neuroscience, a dog owners journey through the treatment of dog aggression.

Learn about nature’s spectacular light show in Auroras – Fire in the Sky by Dan Bortolotti with photographs by Yuichi Takasaka.

Once More with Feeling is about a western prairie city, about a community, about a family, and about the way time makes fond fools of us all by award-winning Canadian author Méira Cook.

Finally for our young readers, we have the Berenstain Bears in Bless Our Gramps & Gran; the Paw Patrol stops Mayor Humdinger from stealing a pile of gold in Gold Rush Pups; and learn some fierce facts about the bite force, crushing jaws, and mighty teeth of Earth’s champion chewers from National Geographic Kids, Chomp! by Brady Barr.
