Visit the Okanagan Regional Library (ORL)! It is a wonderful place to bring the entire family. Most people think of the library and automatically think of books. Yes, we have awesome books for everyone, but your library is so much more these days!
In the library, you can find borrowable tech like Ozobots, DVDs, magazines, comics/manga, classes, and activities for all ages. Check out the online events calendar to see what is happening at your local branch.
Online users can access eBooks, audiobooks, streaming movies and music, eMagazines, Rosetta Stone language learning, helpful tutorials on all subjects through LinkedIn Learning and more.
I wouldn’t want to disappoint the book enthusiasts, so let’s get back to those books that we are so famous for!
Reading together is a wonderful way to connect. The ORL has a brilliant list of picture book recommendations titled 100 Books to Read Together before Kindergarten. It is available at all ORL libraries or on our website. Kids that finish the entire list will receive a special book bag.
It seems these days that the library can’t keep comics and graphic novels on the shelves! Here are my current favourites for kids:
• Glam Prix Racers by Deanna Kent & Neil Hooson
• Simon and Chester by Cale Atkinson
• Sir Ladybug by Corey R. Tabor
• Pizza and Taco by Stephen Shaskan
• Barb, the Last Berzerker by Dan Abdo
• Swim Team by Johnnie Christmas
• Apple Crush by Lucy Knisley
• Anne of West Philly by Ivy Noelle Weir
• The Aquanaut by Dan Santat
• Go With the Flow by Lily Williams
• Stealing Home by J. Torres
