New books in the Longview Library are “The Daring Ladies of Lowell” by Kate Lowell, “The Swan Gondola” by Timothy Schaffert and “The Ghosts of Tupela Landing” by Sheila Tarnage. If you have not been by to see the new library, be sure to do so.

I would like to remind you how easy it is for you to a get a book that you want, but that isn’t in our library. As a member of the Marigold Library System, the Longview Library members have access to four other library systems and can order any book from these. It is amazing how quickly they come. I am usually very pleased with the little time I have to wait.

On Friday, March 7 we had a video-conference in the library, celebrating International Women’s Day. The keynote speaker was Lauryn Oates, a Canadian human rights activist whose work concentrates on international development and education, mostly in Afghanistan. She said the love of and access to books, other than text books, furthered their scholastic achievement and also made them better leaders and councillors after graduation.

We have an excellent supply of puzzles for both young and old. Four programs for the school children at the Longview School have been planned for March. They are My Bug Book, Bug Craft 1 and 2 and Alphabet Caterpillars

A good read is “Open Arms” by Marina Endicott, author of “Good To A Fault”. It is a sweet natured novel full of hope and promise. It is the story of a girl who has lived with her grandmother as a child in Nova Scotia. She sets out to search for her mother, which brings her to Saskatoon. The novel charts her coarse by an expert storyteller. Endicott lives in Alberta.

Happy reading.
