Norden the Magician was here!

Our favourite Magic-Man was here May 25th. Over 130 kids from schools all over Terrace packed the Art Gallery for his awesome literacy-based magic show. Using the magic words, "I love to read", Norden and his rabbit Q-Tip had adults and kids alike in stitches! He encouraged all kids to get a Library card and join the Library's Summer Reading Club, this year called "Built It".

Teddy Bear Sleep Over

A dozen bears, alligators, donkeys and sasquatches slept over at the Terrace Public Library on Friday Sept 27th. Well...from the look of the photos, maybe they didn't "sleep" all that much! The Library's teen club tried to keep their fooling around in check, but seems they still managed a fair bit a silliness. Click the picture below to view the photo gallery of the event...
