Library Corner – Week of April 23, 2018

Updated 2018/04/20

Annual Spring Tea

Join us at the Library for our Annual Spring Tea for volunteers, Library patrons, and friends on Friday, May 4th from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m.  The Lac du Bonnet Board and Staff like to take this opportunity to show our appreciation to those who help us year-round in so many ways.  Everyone is Welcome!

May 7th to May 13th is Mental Health Awareness Week.  In order to promote mental well-being and encourage help-seeking behaviours through awareness and educational activities/resources in the Manitoba Interlake-Eastern area, the Library will be assisting the Regional Health Authority in promoting reading materials that will provide trustworthy information to empower people in making informed decisions about their well-being.  Do come in and check out the display table dedicated to Mental Health Awareness during that week, and see what this library has to offer.

The Lac du Bonnet Library Board and Staff would like to thank all our guests for joining us for “Celebrating Stories and Music” last week.  We extend special thanks to illustrator/author Brenda McKenzie for all her interesting knowledge and to music instructor/performer Hannah Leigh Strachan and her Vivo Harmonics Music Students for providing the terrific entertainment. It was a very special evening at the Library. Once again, thank you to our faithful volunteers who helped make this evening a success.

What’s New?

While the Malory and Anderson clans set aside rivalries to hunt down a man who has abducted James and Georgina’s beloved daughter, the abductee discovers that her captor is a nobleman seeking to settle a score against her father, in Beautiful Tempest by Johanna Lindsey.

Ten years after leaving her troubled family behind, unable to cope with life with a disabled sister, Nicole Hunter is drawn back home by tragedy to care for her pregnant sister and to mend her estranged relationship with her mother, in The Language of Sisters by Amy Hatvany.

Death’s Mistress: Sister of Darkness launches The Nicci Chronicles, Terry Goodkind’s entirely new series with a cast of characters centered on one of his best-loved characters in the now-concluded Sword of Truth.
