Summer at the Library Newsletter
August 14, 2020
On May 25, 2020, George Floyd’s death at the hands of police officer Derek Chauvin triggered months of protests and social change that are still ongoing. To affirm that black lives matter, and recognizing our patrons might want to read about this subject, we have set up a Black Stories Matter book display, which displays books in our collection written by black authors.
Next week is our last storytime of the summer, where we’ll be reading some of our favourite books, and have party-themed jokes, snacks and a craft. Reminder to register; all our Wednesday slots are filled, and we only have a couple slots open for Tuesday. We hope to see you and your kid/grandkid on the rocks in front of the library at 1:30 Tuesday or Wednesday!
This week, Summer at the Library highlights She, a Scandinavian-style suspense crime novel by Scottish author Pete Brassett. The first book in the Detective Inspector Munro series, She follows burly Scottish Detective Inspector James Munroe and Charlotte West, a Detective Sergeant new to the force with lots to prove. Their first case together is a missing person investigation turned serial killer hunt that becomes deadly when bodies are found sliced to pieces. A woman was placed at the scene of the crime, but finding her identity turns out to be a challenge harder than either of them imagined.
Be sure to check out the rest of our new books at the Pinawa Public Library!
