At the Libraries
July 26, 2012
Tools from Burnaby's past are on display at all four branches of the Burnaby Public Library this summer.
The special displays are part of the Library's "Strange But True Summer Reading Club". Kids of all ages can sign up for the free program, which encourages children to read and visit their local libraries.
Stop by a branch to see a display of truly weird and wonderful artifacts, and participate in a guessing game to figure out what they might have been used for. The display features tools that were once common in Burnaby's homes and businesses, but are rarely seen today.
The Strange But True: Tools from Burnaby's Past display is travelling to all four branches of the Burnaby Public Library, on the following dates:
- July 3 - July 16: McGill Library, 4595 Albert Street
- July 17 - July 30: Cameron Library, 9523 Cameron Street
- July 31 - August 13: Tommy Douglas Library, 7311 Kingsway
- August 14 - 28: Bob Prittie Metrotown Library, 6100 Willingdon Avenue
For more information, visit any branch of a Burnaby Public Library.
