Blueskin Bay Library (column)

A merry mid-winter to you all, and here comes July when we will start
to notice days becoming a little longer if not warmer, yet. So light
the fire, put on another jersey, and make sure that your supplies of
books, DVDs, and CDs will not run out. For that, you need us. We are
also offering you activities such as the Warrington children's book
club, a new adults' book club, the annual honouring of all things
poetic on Poetry Day, and from July 1, new opening hours.

Staff book picks

Louise recommends 'The hospital by the river: a story of hope by
Catherine Hamlin with John Little'. This is a true story of how
Doctors' Catherine and Reg Hamlin set up Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital
in Ethiopia. It's a great but sobering read.

Carolyn recommends 'Moral Disorder' by Margaret Atwood. These are
short stories that return to the same characters at different times in
their lives. Brilliant, absorbing.
