Does your child need some extra encouragement with their reading? Book Buddies can help!

Book Buddies is a Library program that helps children aged 6-11 who need support and encouragement in maintaining and improving their reading skills. Children are matched with a teen volunteer, and for half an hour each week the Book Buddies read aloud to each other, choose books to take home, and do literacy-based activities, such as word games. This program does not teach reading, and is a reading mentoring program.

Space is limited. Register at 604-929-3727, ext. 8166. 

 Maximum 8 children. 4 timeslots available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Join us for an evening with photographer, artist, and author Heather Johnston, discussing her recent book For the Love of Vancouver: Connections with Beauty, a collection of over 100 classic black & white photos of some of Vancouver’s most notable and lessor known landmarks. Accompanying some of the photographs spread throughout the book are a collection of related short stories from everyday Vancouverites, recounting cherished memories of time spent with co-workers, friends and loved ones. These memories add life to the images creating a richer, more engaging experience for the reader.

Heather’s work is inspired by the beauty of the natural world and the mysteries of life.  She blends photography, digital manipulation and hand painting into a growing collection of fine art prints, gifts and decor products.
