Summer at the Library Newsletter
July 10, 2020
Inter-library loan is back! Starting Monday July 12, the Pinawa Public Library will be resuming limited inter-library loan service. Currently, we will only be servicing loans inside Manitoba, and excluding university loans. As many libraries are still closed or have not opted to resume inter-library loan service yet, book options may be limited and we might not be able to borrow the book you would like.
The theme for this week’s storytime is animals! Join us on the rocks outside the library at 1:30 on Tuesday or Wednesday afternoons for jokes, stories, snack and an easy craft! Reminder, registration is necessary, especially as there are six spots left on Tuesday and only two left for Wednesday. We hope to see you and your child/grandchild at storytime this week!
This week, our book highlight is a non-fiction one by Dr. Merv Letts. Flashback of a Prairie Kid: Growing up on the Prairies in the little town of Minnedosa, Manitoba in the 1940s and 1950s is a collection of Dr. Letts’ memories growing up in Minnedosa, and the challenges it and other small Manitoba towns faced in the 1940s and ‘50s. Some of his memories focus on the war effort in prairie towns, others on sports like hockey on open-air rinks or curling, and the book is full of pictures from Dr. Letts’ adventures. Be sure to come by the Pinawa Public Library to check out the rest of our new books!
