Children

At the JMCPL we’re proud to offer a wide range of children’s programming.  These programs will strengthen the imagination, creativity, and literacy of your children and will set them on the path to becoming life-long learners.  Oh yeah, and they’ll also have a lot of fun while they’re at it!  Click on the links to the left to access more specific program information.  You can also access our Online Programs Calendar for a complete list of programming.

Special Guest Author Sara Leach
Sara Leach is an award-winning author of books for children. Her newest book, Penguin Days, illustrated by Rebecca Bender, is the sequel to Slug Days, which received an Honourable Mention in the Foreword INDIES Book Awards for Juvenile Fiction and was nominated for the Chocolate Lily Book Award. Her middle grade novel Count Me In has been translated into four languages, and won the Red Cedar Book Award.

Sara has been an elementary school teacher-librarian and classroom teacher for over twenty years. She is a frequent presenter at elementary schools and public libraries, both in person and through Skype. Even though Sara’s grandparents, mother and uncle were all writers, as a child she disliked writing and wanted to be an engineer. It wasn’t until she took an education course in university that she realized writing could be kind of fun (and that engineering wasn’t for her). Ten years after that she saw a bald eagle nearly eat a seal pup for lunch and was inspired to write her first book for children. Sara lives in Whistler, BC, where she works as a teacher-librarian. She enjoys skiing, hiking and biking in the local mountains with her two teenaged children and husband.

Students in grades five to seven are invited to attend this special author presentation by Sara Leach. Registration is limited to eighty students and their teachers. Public is welcome to drop in. Space is limited.

May 25, 2019

With the summer harvest done and the anticipated Honey Games beginning, Maya and her hive are abuzz with excitement. Instead of being invited to take part in the Buzztropolis games by the Empress, she orders Maya's hive to give up half of their honey for the athletes. Maya arrives at Buzztropolis to protest but things get sticky. The Empress then decrees: if Maya wins, the hive keeps all of their honey but if Maya loses, their honey will be hers. With the fate of the hive at stake, Maya and her team must learn to work and trust each other.
