Prince Rupert Library to celebrate Aboriginal History Month through June

An opportunity to explore the growing list of titles when it comes First Nations writing and history is as close as the Prince Rupert Library, as the Sixth Avenue facility launches its month long program Indigenous Book Club month.

The Library features an extensive collection of Aboriginal work, from fiction to biographies, whether they be historical or contemporary. In addition to books, the library also offers up other resource materials that can help quench your thirst for more knowledge.

Should you have a title of note that you think they might want to bring in, you can share that with the library staff, or if there's a title you've heard about and want to read, if they don't have it they can access it through their inter-library loan program

The reading material and other items available make for a lead up to the annual Aboriginal Day celebrations in the city coming up on June 21st.

The 19th annual National Aboriginal Day is set for Mariner's Park from Noon to 8 PM on the 21st, the day's events feature family activities, cultural dancers traditional foods and Door Prizes.

As well there will be a Grand Prize draw for a Roundtrip for two to Vancouver sponsored by Air Canada.

You can keep up to date on events scheduled for the 21st here.

In the event of rain, the celebrations will be relocated to the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre.

Back at the Library a reminder for North Coast residents that they are now operating under their summer hours, with the Library closed each Sunday through until after Labour Day.

More notes from the library can be found from the website and Facebook page
