Summer Reading Club 2019!

 

 

 

 

 

Get ready kids! The Library’s Summer Reading Club “Imagine the Possibilities!” will start Friday June 28, 2019.

Come by the Library to sign-up and get your own free booklet to keep track of all the books you read in July & August. Collect fun stickersbookmarks, and proudly receive your very own Reading Medal.

Regular reading throughout the summer helps kids maintain or improve reading skills while school is out. Kids are encouraged to read lots of books, and to listen to someone read to them. We look forward to seeing you and your family at the Library this summer.

Love of the Salish Sea Islands book launch – Galiano Library
Aug 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Galiano Island Library presents: 

Book Launch: Love of the Salish Sea Islands – New Essays, Memoirs and Poems by 40 Island Writers

Meet the Authors

Author Steven Ross Smith joined by special guests Cathy Ford and Arlene Paré, authors from Mayne Island.

Stephen Ross Smith, over three decades, has lived part-time in a cabin on Galiano Island. Five years ago he purchased a kayak to ply the waters around the island, and to write about the experiences. He has published the poetic series fluttertongue, now six books long. He is also the 2019 Banff Poet Laureate.

The event will discuss the new book “Love of the Salish Sea Islands – New Essays, Memoirs and Poems by 40 Island Writers“, edited by Mona Fertig (2019). “A treasury of writing celebrating the beauty, community, and importance of our archipelagos. Forty skilled island writers share their love of the many islands in the Salish Sea off British Columbia’s coast through passionate, eclectic and reflective-new and previously unpublished-essays, memoirs and poems.” 49thshelf.com

Everyone welcome!

Co-hosted by Galiano Island Books.
