What is the difference between the three book clubs? The two afternoon book clubs read the exact same books, just in a different order. The evening book club has a different set of books entirely.

Where do I get the book? Come to the circulation desk, and see if there is a copy OR pick a copy up when the book club meets.

I want to run my own book club

That is great! We have book club sets that you can borrow. The titles available can be found here: Book Club Sets 

Anyone with a Penticton Public Library card can check out a Book Club Kit for their book club.  The person who checks out the kit assumes responsibility for returning the complete kit (bag and all copies) to the library by the due date.

** Please note that you MUST put a request in for the set, either by phone (250) 770-7782, in person, or by going here

 

 

Creative Non-Fiction Writing Group

Thursday, September 26 - Thursday, November 28
09:30 am to 11:30 am

Our aim is to inspire and help each other write anecdotes about specific events in our lives -- personal stories to hand down to future generations and possibly become archival public history.

At each meeting the participants will bring a  story (or part of a story) they have written, of between 300 to 500 words, to share with the group. You will then edit your story to add a sense of place and time, emotion, character development, dialogue, if appropriate. You may wish to improve your story with the help of the group’s feedback.

The animator will provide tips and exercises to tap your resources for more writing ideas. You are encouraged to contribute by bringing your own writing ideas for stories to the group. During each session we will take time to write a story to share with the group.

This program is FREE, and is open to anyone 18 and older. 

Level Up Your Ideas

Saturday, November 2
10:00 am to 02:30 pm

In this all-day workshop for adults (ages 19+), you’ll learn more complicated 3D modeling using 3D Design Software. In the morning we will teach you more advanced tools and tricks in the online software TinkerCAD. In the  afternoon, you'll use the new tools you’ve learned to work on your very own design which will be 3D printed at a later date (approximately 1 to 2 weeks). Participants need to have taken “Print Your Ideas” or be familiar with TinkerCAD. 

Space is limited to 12 people, so register here:
