Kamloops, BC—April 5, 2022 — The Thompson-Nicola Regional Library (TNRL) is excited to share its spring program schedule from April to June, featuring a range of events for all ages.
Story Dog is returning to our Kamloops Libraries, for children who need a little extra tender, love and care with their reading. Children read aloud to a St. John’s Ambulance Therapy Dog for 15 minutes. These one-on-one sessions will take place on Saturdays at 10:30 a.m., from April 9 to June 11.
The TNRL has partnered with FireSmart BC to offer a variety of children activities through the spring to enhance wildfire preparedness and resiliency.
Events for the One Book One Community title, Five Little Indians by Michelle Good, will be hosted at Thompson Rivers University through May. See the TNRL Events Calendar for program details.
Teen Gaming tournaments are back! Our Switch Super Mario Kart tournaments will be happening once per month on Saturday afternoons, and will remain virtual for ease of access for our teen library users.
Spring is the time for writing (and writing workshops). The TNRL will be hosting two B.C. authors this season who will be offering tips and tricks to aspiring authors. Maureen Brownlee joins us on Saturday, April 9, from 2-4 pm at the North Kamloops Library, for the mini-workshop Write Where You Are. In May, Eleanor Deckert will be leading a virtual Memoir Writing workshop, which will be hosted on Tuesdays for four weeks, from 2 pm – 3:30 pm, starting on May 10.
In-person Technology Help appointments are back at the Kamloops Libraries, where library users can receive personalized support with beginner technology questions. Virtual and phone appointments are also available.
Registration for all programs is now open. Regularly occurring programs will continue, including Storytime & Craft, Dungeons & Dragons for Teens, Book Clubs, and a host of special events.
