A new kind of space travel has been discovered, and Meg’s scientist father is at the forefront of the new developments. But then he disappears, leaving her to solve one of the biggest mysteries of all time. Luckily, she’ll have some help along the way. With her brother and a friend by her side, she will embark upon a great adventure.

Sage Hill Teen Writing Experience

Sage-Hill-Logo1-e1424985190952

Monday, July 23 to Friday, July 27, 10:00 to 4:00 daily (Spots still available!)

Teen Writing Programs and Young Writers’ Programs are held each summer throughout the province. They offer up to 14 youth in each location the opportunity to develop their creative writing skills with a professional writer as instructor. The workshops are held in partnership with local libraries and are offered free of charge to participants.
For teen programs, applicants should be between 14 – 18 years old at the time of the program they intend to apply for.
Instructor: Evonne Garnett
Evonne Garnett lives in Prince Albert, teaches Creative Writing at one of the high schools there, and, when it’s offered, at the Polytechnic Institute as well. She has participated in Sage Hill’s Summer Writing Program and is still in awe of that experience. She was over the moon in 2013 when she was long-listed for CBC Writes. She is published in small ways here and there, is working on a chapter for a feminist textbook to be published in the next year, and is a involved in the local writing community. She is charmed by cats, gardens, books of all kinds, traveling experiences, dark chocolate, and warm conversation, always.
Guest Author: TBA

We Do Outreach Services!

Love Books

JMCPL strives to provide library services for every member of our community and to reach out to those who have difficulty visiting the library in person.  Our Outreach Service provides pickup and delivery of library items from the library to your doorstep.  If you have a physical or age-related disability or illness resulting in limited mobility, you qualify for our free Outreach Service.

Once registered for the service, library staff will contact you in order to discuss what kinds of topics and formats you prefer.  Our staff will select books and other material relating to your personal reading profile.

JMCPL delivers fiction and non-fiction books, movies, magazines, music and books on CD.  The lending period for most Outreach Service materials is six weeks.

Library items are delivered once a month, and you can either apply to have your books delivered by a volunteer (depending on the number of volunteers some locations are unavailable for delivery), or you can have a family member, friend, or neighbor pick up and drop off your items for you.

If you are interested in our Outreach Service, please contact the library at 306-763-8496 and register.
