The Biblio File: Library News

Updated 2023/02/06

The Biblio File
February 6, 2023

The week of February 5-11th is International Development Week.  Each year the Manitoba Council for International Cooperation curate two book lists – one for young readers and one for adult readers.  The themes of these books include social justice, perseverance, Indigenous voices and other subjects related to human rights around the world.   These lists, along with some of the books on them, are our new display at the library.

There is a new story featured along the Storywalk!  The Mitten is a Ukrainian folktale, adapted and illustrated by Jan Brett.  In this cute story, Nicki drops his white mitten in the snow, and goes on without realizing that it is missing.  One by one, woodland animals find the mitten and crawl in; first a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last.  This book is also featured on our interactive tactile table inside the library.
