You may have noticed that it’s Canadian Library Month. To celebrate, we’ve been making daily posts on social media highlighting Canadian authors.
Guy Vanderhaeghe, Miriam Toews, Thomas King, and Stuart McLean are just a small sampling of the many great authors from this country who inspire us with their uniquely Canadian humour and perspective.
All these authors' works, of course, are available at the library and through TRACPac.
Also, APL has also been hosting seasonal flu shot clinics with Shoppers Drug Mart and Save On Foods. This Friday is the last chance to get your flu shot at the library between 2 and 5:30 p.m.
Our last Storywalk at Nose Creek Regional Park will be coming soon, allowing Airdronians to take a walk with their children or grandchildren, and enjoy The Ghosts Go Spooking by Chrissy Bozik, courtesy of the Marigold Library System and Scholastic Canada.
Registration is well underway for our second half of fall programming, but here are a few highlights worth mentioning for November, which you can register for online:
