Check out what's happening at the Gibsons Library this month.




It was another great summer for kids at the library. We are delighted to have offered 40 sessions of 15 different programs, and to have welcomed more than 600 young people through our doors for free programs and events. Many thanks to our volunteers for sharing so much of their time, and to this year's Summer Reading Club sponsors: Coast Computers, Enchanted Toys and Gifts, Lisa's Framing and Art Supplies, Game Point, Pastimes, Canadian Tire, and CUPE Local 391. We will be slowing down in September but Storytimes, D & D nights, our annual Teen Book Club, as well as Lego Builders and Robotics will all start again in October. Stay tuned for more details.
