Summer Reading Program

The Lac du Bonnet Library Board and Staff are pleased to announce that we will be running a Summer Reading Program again this year, from July 3rd to August 16th.  The program is open to all children ages five to twelve years of age.  Visitors to our community are most welcome.  Join the fun at the Library, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This is a drop-in program, but in order to be better prepared, pre-registration is greatly appreciated.  If you have any questions, please either stop by the Library or give us a call at (204)345-2653.

 What’s New?

 A news reporter tries to find her birth mother just as she is assigned to cover the high-profile trial of a woman accused of murdering her wealthy husband, in Mary Higgins Clark’s As Time Goes By.

During her desolate childhood, Margaret Douglas sought refuge in the peaceful woods, soon realizing she possessed a strange gift, the ability to communicate with animals.  Now as an adult, Margaret wants nothing more than to live a quiet life, close to the animals and under the radar; but her abilities have not gone unnoticed and there are those who would use them for their own purposes, in No Easy Target by Iris Johansen.
