What role does the library play in your life? Originally storehouses for books, libraries currently have become central hubs for their communities, offering resources, services and programming that are both a reflection of and a contribution to the members of their particular community. The Langara Library's Mission is "To be a vital partner in academic excellence and student success – a hub for the intellectual, cultural, and social life of the Langara community." Support and celebrate your favourite library this month!
The Vancouver Writers Fest 2020 Festival is happening online Oct.19-25, with special events occurring weekly from September to November. The Festival features emerging and established authors from around the world, and many from closer to home too. We've put together a selection of titles by BC and Canadian authors featured this year. There is something for everyone - plays, nonfiction, poetry, short fiction, and a few titles for younger readers too.
Popular culture permeates every aspect of our daily life, constantly influencing what we see, hear, feel, wear, eat and more. How important is popular culture, and what does it tell us about society as a whole? Immerse yourself in one of our many titles on this topic, from black popular culture and youth culture, to music and celebrities.
An extraordinarily eerie selection of ghostly books and films to help you get your 'spook' on this October!
