📖'Read It First' Book Club 

Oliver’s Great Big Universe by Jorge Cham (Arriving soon at OPL) 



“I think Oliver's Great Big Universe is a good book. Oliver explains and teaches how the universe works and I learned stuff(like space and science thingys) that I didn’t know before. I really like the way he drew the comics in the book because it helped me imagine the words and what was happening. I like how he explains it in a fun and funny way. For example, I never knew about Dark Energy or that there was a sextillion or a quintillion. And that he said the ‘big bang’ was basically just like a big fart! Haha! I laughed out loud at some parts!  

Very great book! I recommend.”

OPL Library Tip of the Week – Award Winners 


📖Meet this year's Giller prize winner Study in Obedience by Sarah Bernstein.   




Sarah Bernstein's Study for Obedience is this year's Scotiabank Giller Prize Winner. Bernstein, a Montreal born author and scholar, virtually accepted her prize earlier this week from her home in Scotland.   


In Study for Obedience, a young woman moves to the remote north to be housekeeper to her brother. The narrator soon learns that the townspeople revile her and she fears the form this negativity could take.
