Harbour Highlights: Curl up with a good book

Thanks to all the hosts and participants in the great Literacy Week in the Harbour and Egmont. What treasures the spoken and written word can be and so worth celebrating. Hope you completed your souvenir Literacy bracelet. 

The Pender Harbour Reading Centre, serving Pender Harbour for over 50 years, offers three ways of borrowing books. You can borrow from their own collection, you can order books from the Sechelt Library and have them delivered and returned to our reading centre, and you can request a book via Inter-Library Loan (ILL) from another library in B.C. provided the book is at least two years old.
