Libraries are usually a quiet place for reading, but that wasn’t the case at the Bob Harkins Branch of the Prince George Public Library (PGPL) this morning. (Saturday)
The library hosted Juno Award winning musician Mary Lambert in a special concert for children.
This hasn’t been the only special event at the library recently, as the PGPL hosted their Bike Fest last weekend, and an art exhibit on the Sixties Scoop at the start of June.
The concert wasn’t the first event this summer, and it won’t be the last.
“We’re really excited to be coming out of the pandemic where we’re able to welcome people back into the library and offer incredible programming,” said Jen Rubadeau, Manager of Communications and Public Engagement at the PGPL.
“That’s what our team is all about, bringing people together, and we do that in a ton of different ways, and some of those are programming.”
Rubadeau said today’s concert kicked off their Summer programming season, including starting the Walking Tour and the Summer Reading Program this week.
She added other upcoming events included a Nerf night for teens, Make Art From Junk, and many more.
“There’s constantly new content being added, so some of them don’t come out until a few weeks before the actual program,” Rubadeau said.
More information on upcoming events can be found on the Prince George Public Library website.
