Summer at the Library Newsletter
July 31, 2020
Please note the library will be closed for the August Long Weekend. We re-open on Tuesday August 4 at 1:00. Have a great long weekend!
Did you grow up on Robert Munsch books? Join us for a Robert Munsch-themed storytime next week with jokes, stories, snack and a craft! Registration is required. We hope to see you and your kids/grandkids on the rocks in front of the library at 1:30 Tuesday or Wednesday!
This week, we highlight Possess the Air, a biography of Italian freedom fighters by Canadian author Taras Grescoe. In 1931, at the height of Mussolini’s power, leaflets dropped down onto Rome from the sky by resistance members determined to broadcast the dictator’s power and xenophobia. Possess the Air is an account of those fighters; ordinary Italian citizens who spoke up when most of the country remained silent or were willing to trade their liberty for the extreme nationalism and glory provided by fascism—elements that exist in society today.
Be sure to check out the rest of our new books at the Pinawa Public Library!
