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.

A Painter’s Life – Galiano Is. Library

The Galiano Library presents:

“A Painter’s Life” — Keith Holmes

Sunday Sept. 1, 2019, 3-5 pm

Artist’s talk: 3:30 pm.

From the moment I opened my first paint-by-numbers kit I was intrigued and intimidated by the process of making a picture out of paint. Sixty years later I think I’m beginning to understand.

It has been a multifaceted journey exploring a variety of modes of visual expression. In my talk I will briefly describe initial encounters with original master painting that convinced me of painting’s unique power as a medium to move the viewer. I will share with you some key aspects of my journey by showing a sampling of work I have done over the years from formative to mature. I will talk about the evolution of Idas that has led me to he work I am doin now.

“I find it endlessly fascinating how effective a simple painting can mediate human experience.
