National Geographic, Guenevere & Ramona

Hello Friends! Hope you are enjoying your final weeks of summer! A big hug to all that have donated their favourite books to Skookum. This month we are stocked with the Ramona series as well as National Geographic. Here are a few more books you can find as well:

We always appreciate the comments and suggestions you leave in Skookum's Little Guestbook. I am thrilled to read that Skookum is inspiring others to want to establish a Little Free Library in their neighbourhood! The experience of being a Little Free Librarian is extremely rewarding especially when you know it is fulfilling a need in your community.

Have a wonderful August!

Sidewalk Chalk, Snuggle Bunnies & Deterring Democracy

Hello Friends! Thank you for your fantastic donations this past month! March was a very busy period for our little library. We've had so many visitors checking out books that it's been difficult to keep track. In addition to your contributions, I've added a few more to our collection. Also, we had a request for teen-oriented books so if you have a few that you'd like to donate that would be great!

Thank you to all of our visitors who signed our guest book! Hello Cheyanne! Love the heart and smiley face! I also want to send a shout out to The Franks, maKenna, Dakota, Skylah, Sydney, Thomas, and Taiya! I'm so glad to hear you love our books. Our generous neighbours and community members will be thrilled to know that!

I've also added a few treats to Skookum's green pail! Grab yourself a bookmark and a really cool pencil while visiting!

Have an amazing day!

12 Years A Slave, Three Cups of Tea & A Long Walk to Water

It's March! We are experiencing beautiful weather here in British Columbia. It's chilly but the sun is out in full bloom. I want to thank all the visitors to Skookum this past month! I've rotated the books and added your donations of 1421 The Year China Discovered America, Three Cups of Tea, and a series of National Geographic. Last year, I was fortunate to win an Amazon gift card and purchased a series of books for Skookum including Solomon Northup's 12 Year's A Slave. I have yet to read the book or see the movie but I hear they are both excellent! Let me know what you think!

Along with my purchase of 12 Years, I also picked up Linda Sue Park's A Long Walk to Water and Lois Lowry's Number the Stars. Both books are Newbery Medalists! "The Newbery Medal was named for eighteenth-century British bookseller John Newbery. It is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children" (www.ala.org). The 2015 winner is featured here. I've also stocked Skookum with Ramona the Brave, Stink-O-Pedia, and Just Me and My Mom. For the wee ones just learning to read, check out Bob Books Collection 1!

In closing, I want to thank those that have contributed comments to Skookum's guest book! I hope you enjoyed your visit Alyssa and Sarah! Skookum is supported by a very generous community of patrons and we thank you for your kind words.

Have an amazing day!

Still Alice, The Colony of Unrequited Dreams, Percy Jackson & Chasing Redbird

Hello Friends! Happy New Year! Over the past month, Skookum's  Library has received several donations and comments. So, let's get to work! A big thank you to all of our patrons for dropping off their favourite reads this holiday. Books are a wonderful gift to share with others. Also, a big thank you to Mrs. W from Prince Charles Elementary who donated many of the books above! 

Thank you to all who have left comments. I completely agree that we need more teen books. If you have a fantastic teenage-appropriate read that you would like to donate, please feel free to drop it off at Skookum.

And a big hello to our loyal patrons Coreen and Dakota! Glad to hear you are enjoying your books.

Have a fantastic week! Happy Monday!
