    Grow

    Summertime is the time for growth at the Calgary Public Library. Have more success growing a variety of plants with our extensive gardening collection, help your children grow with our hundreds of parenting titles and help your community grow by reading about urban planning.

    Maybe you would like to do the growing with our wonderful self-help books, CDs and DVDs or maybe you'd like to grow your own business with a book on small business creation.

    Pour your heart into it


    So join the Calgary Public Library for a 9-week summer reading adventure. Each week we're diving into a new theme: explore, play, imagine, create, live, laugh, learn, grow, and… be. Together we’ll discover new books that will keep you reading all summer. We’ll post information about the weekly theme every Wednesday here on our Readers’ Nook blog and on our Facebook page.

    When you comment on our Summer. Read. Facebook posts, telling us what books or DVDs or CDs you’ve been enjoying, you’ll be entered to win great prizes. There are weekly prizes of leather-bound journals and CPL tote bags, as well as ten grand prize Kobo eReaders! You can also enter by filling out a paper ballot at your local library.

    I finished The last of the Dragon Tattoo series early july and tried Conn Iggulden's Wolf of the Plains. THAT was fantastic. Now I'm half way through Terry Goodkind's Wizard's first rule. I picked up the reading bug last year and I've been fairly steady ever since. I just got my library card on Thursday. Pumped!

    If you're a fan of fantasy and science fiction Judy, you should come down to the central library today and meet best selling authors Kevin J. Anderson and Kelley Armstrong as part of When Words Collide. It starts at noon.
