Updated 2015/04/27

Children’s Canadian Book Week

Next week is Children’s Canadian Book Week, and to celebrate, on Friday we have a special Story Time with local author Margriet Ruurs.

Margriet Ruurs is the award winning author of 26 books for children including fiction, non-fiction and poetry. One of her books My Librarian is a Camel was awarded Teacher’s Choice Award and named IRA’s Notable Book for Global Awareness.

As well as being an author, Margriet is an educator who has taught writing workshops at elementary schools across North America and as far afield as Lahore in Pakistan.

When she’s not busy writing and speaking, Margriet likes to hike or knit. But what she likes best is getting children excited about writing and reading good books!

StoryTime with Margriet is on Friday the 1st of May at 10:30am. Attendance is free. Hope to see you there.

BC Youth Week

By a strange coincidence, next week is also BC Youth Week. To celebrate we are running a competition for ages 13-18. Maximum 5,000 words. Deadline: 7th May. Submissions at the Library Desk or by email to librarian@saltspringlibrary.com.
