Stop by the library and listen to local youth author, Cedrick Anderson, as he reads from his book, Ceddybones and the Terrifying Lizard.

Ceddy Bones is a skeleton boy from a place not here nor there, a world just like ours, but with a little extra scare.

Join Ceddy Bones as he explores the Great Beside. His world is just like yours, except instead of other humans, its filled with ghosts, ghouls, zombies, and all sorts of other creatures.

The Vernon Library is honoured to present a reading with Ivan Coyote, award-winning author and LGBTQ2S+ advocate. Ivan’s warmth, wit, and wisdom leaves audiences laughing, crying, and contemplating life’s complexities. Inclusivity and empathy inform their work, fostering understanding and compassion. This promises to be an evening that will touch your heart and stay with you long after the final word is spoken.

Come and join us and use art to explore the question of how art can contribute to peace. This free program is open to youth and adults and you are welcome to being a friend to connect to the circle. Art For Peace uses art to explore how it can contribute to peace in your own heart, your community and the world at large.

This program is free, open to all youths and adults, and art supplies are provided. You can also bring your own art supplies.

Discover a whole new world of creativity at your fingertips!
