Caitlyn Baker, a student page with the County Libraries, recently enjoyed 52 Reasons to Hate my Father, a YA novel by Jessica Brody.
Since February was Black History Month, the Amherstview Branch’s book club read books based on the themes of black history and culture. Jennifer, who leads the book club, chose to read Brown Girl in the Ring by Nalo Hopkinson, a great CanLit novel. It’s sci-fi and from 1998, so it could be considered a bit obscure. “Winner of several ‘best first novel’ awards, this novel weaves together elements of Afro-Caribbean culture, feminist science fiction, and magic realism,” says Jennifer.
The County of Lennox and Addington Public Libraries are proud to support the community’s culture and talent. It is for this reason that we have started the “Art in the Library” program in partnership with the Greater Napanee Area Arts Association (GNAAA). A prominent feature wall was created at the Napanee Branch specifically for this program where artists can display their work.
The latest exhibit, starring Primrose Craig and David A. Gordon will be running until April 30th.
The Ontario Library Association’s Evergreen Award is best described as the “readers’ choice” of Canadian literary awards. Each year, a list of ten nominees is selected by a committee of librarians and in September library patrons from all across the province can vote on their favourite. The winner will be announced during Ontario Public Library Week in October.
“I See You is the highly anticipated page-turner by author Clare Mackintosh whose debut book I Let You Go caused quite a stir late last year,” says Marg Wood from the Napanee Branch. “It was hailed as the new Girl on the Train and proved to be extremely popular; in fact it is still in high demand. I just finished reading I See You and I predict that it will garner the same interest and be just as popular!”
