raser Valley Regional Library (FVRL) is excited to participate in Public Library Day at the Fair at the PNE. Thanks to a partnership between the Fair and Public Library InterLINK, fair-goers can get into the Fair for only $5 on Wednesday, August 23 by presenting an FVRL library card! The Fair is always free for children under the age of 13.
FVRL will participate alongside InterLINK member libraries in onsite activities from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on August 23. Fair-goers are invited to stopover in the Library Zone near Toon City and Gate 4 for lively activities, or simply, to take a break. Members of the Vancouver Canucks will be performing scheduled storytimes at the Toon City Stage and after, will sign autographs in the Library Zone. FVRL will feature its Library Live and On Tour (LiLi) vehicle, Sphero SPRK+, ukuleles, and green screens. There will also be impromptu storytimes, maker activities, games, and more!
"Like the Fair, our public libraries are a favourite place for families to visit, and an essential part of summer in BC," says Public Library InterLINK Executive Director Michael Burris. "Library Day at the Fair at the PNE provides an opportunity to highlight some of the engaging activities that families can expect when they visit their local library – there is something for all ages."
