    Laugh Your Way Through These...

    - 0 Comment(s)


    “Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.” – George Carlin

    Most people would agree that laughter is the best form of medicine and if you were to ask them what makes them laugh, you’d get all kinds of different answers. At CPL, we recognize the need for variety, not only in content but in format too. We’ve got books and CDs and books on CD…and whether you like George Carlin, Monty Python, Family Guy or Bill Cosby we’ve got what you want!

    Your Calgary Public Library card also gives you access to HOOPLA, for streaming movies, television shows, music and audiobooks using your browser, smartphone or tablet, or downloading them to your device to enjoy offline…and it has a great comedy section!

    Some titles to tickle your funny bone:
