Kootenay Teen Book Club (Online)
Gordon Korman is in the house!
He will be visiting our Zoom Room to discuss his book Restart, a story about a boy who doesn't remember falling off the roof and hitting his head. In fact, he doesn't remember anything. He wakes up in a hospital room and suddenly has to learn his whole life over again...starting with his own name. Join teens and pre-teens across the kootenays to discuss this book and meet the author! Register for the event and get a copy of the book by contacting your local library or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The Radon Library lending program is provided free to library patrons through support from Health Canada, the BC Lung Association, Simon Fraser University and the Kootenay Library Federation. The Kits are available for four-week loans.
Radon gas comes from naturally occurring uranium in soils and rocks and some regions in Canada have more uranium than others. Radon levels in homes can be elevated but it is impossible to tell unless you test as the gas is odourless, tasteless and colourless.
You can place a hold on our website, call, or email us to add your name to the holds list. Unfortunately our system had a glitch, and holds made on the kit before March 2020 were not saved, so if you placed a hold previously, you will need to add it
Click here to find the radon kit in our catalogue. Click “place hold” be put on the waitlist for the radon lending kit. Please call the library if you have any questions.
We want to thank all of our wonderful patrons for being so understanding during these uncertain and unusual times! Our service structure might look a little different, but we are still here to serve you as best as we can!
