Prince Rupert joins other communities in celebrating Canadian Library Month

It's Canadian Library month
at the Prince Rupert Library
As we all discovered back in January, Prince Rupert residents have a strong attachment to their local library, so this month should be one which sees a strong flow of visitors drop in through October to help celebrate Canadian Library month.

The importance of public libraries is the focus for October, as communities from coast to coast to explore and re-engage with their public gathering spots through the month.

In Prince Rupert, the local library on Sixth Street West is looking to bring in the visitors with a pair of interesting opportunities for residents to take advantage of.

The first is the chance to reconnect with the library for those that may have lost their card, with the Prince Rupert Library offering the chance to pick up a Free Replacement Card, waiving the five dollar charge for the month.

As well for Library month, the Library is holding a contest where visitors can enter to win a selection of books.

At the end of the month the Library hosts its 10th Annual Novel idea Auction taking place on Friday, October 28th from 7 to 9 PM.

You can find out what's new at the Library from this list of New Arrivals offering books and DVD's for residents to check out.

With the long weekend approaching, the Library will be closed over the Thanksgiving period, with the doors closing at 5 PM tonight, reopening on Tuesday at 10 AM.

You can learn more about the Prince Rupert Library from their website or Facebook page.
