What's happening this month at the Gibsons Library.






Hello, Gibsons Library Patrons! Oh, how we've missed you!


We're so excited to get our library events back up and running. Virtually, of course! Our language groups are starting up again in May and in June we'll be running our book clubs and more, all on Zoom. In the meantime, drop us a line. We'd love to hear from you and are happy to help with book suggestions, tech help with downloading ebooks or audiobooks, or point you to homework help for your child's online learning challenges.


Remember our book drop is now open Tuesdays to Thursdays, 9:30 - 2:00 only. We have limited days and hours set up so we can quarantine and then sanitize everything so we can all stay safe. 


And here's an exciting announcement ! We know you've missed your precious books. So have we! So coming soon..... (drum roll please....) Library Takeout - a contactless hold pick-up service! We're working out the details on how to get books and other library items safely to you, so stay tuned for more info about this great new service in the coming weeks!


Check out our website and find us on all the socials.

Reading & Streaming



Here's just a snapshot of this month's featured Reading & Streaming resources. For a complete list of all our fabulous databases, click here. You'll be amazed with everything your library has to offer!



Overdrive requests, anyone?


If you're looking for a good book, we've got you covered! Overdrive has thousands of e-books and audiobooks to choose from. We've added to our online collection so many of the hot titles you've been waiting for will be available to you even faster!  If you find a book that's unavailable on Overdrive or the holds list is just too darn long, let us know and we'll do our best to get it for you.






Have you checked out NoveList yet? NoveList is a reading recommendation database. You can browse by genre, appeal, theme, author and title read-alikes and much more. NoveList will help you identify books that fit your mood and style. Definitely one of my favourites!







Tired of Netflix? We're so happy to introduce you to our amazing new streaming service, Kanopy.  It provides instant access to thousands of critically acclaimed movies, documentaries, kid favourites and more. Find out more here.
