New Library Books!

It’s getting to be a lot like….. the time for sitting in front of the fire with a good book. The Dora Drinkwater Library (located in the Denman Hall building) has just bought all kinds of new books. If you haven’t been there lately, come and check out the new books.

You must wear a mask, but we’ll give you one, if you don’t have one. Sanitize your hands, and stay 6 feet apart from others, if possible.

We decided to emphasize timely topics this purchasing , so you can learn more about climate, ecology, reconciliation, and racism among other things. Here’s what we’ve added to books you can borrow if you live on Denman: Injun – Jordan Abel (Poems about First Nations)

Silent Spring – Rachel Carson
The Rabbit Listened- Cori Doerrfeld
The Innocents – Michael Crummy
The Serpent’s Tale (AKA “The Death Maze)- Ariana Franklin Relics if the Dead (AKA “Grave Goods”)- Ariana Franklin

The Fire Next Time – James Baldwin

This is the Fire – Don Lemon
Julian is a Mermaid – Jessica Love
Braiding Sweetgrass – Robin Wall Kimmerer
The Overstory – Richard Powers
Eat Like a Fish – My Adventures as a Fisherman Turned Restorative

Ocean Farmer – Bren Smith
A Gentleman in Moscow – Anor Towles
The Patch: People, pipelines & the Politics of the Oil Sands – Chris Turner
At the Bridge – Wendy Wickwire

In addition to that list of books we just purchased, which will certainly make you well-informed, Matsuki Masutani came in the other day and donated a copy of his new book of poetry! He is a local author whom I know you’ll enjoy.

The volunteers are getting lonely. Pay us a visit and check out some books.
