Children’s Book Event

Saturday, Sept. 23 at 11 a.m.

Ruth Tabacnik will be presenting her book “Lara Captures the Sun“. It is beautifully illustrated by Wakefield’s own Iris Kiewiet and is based on a true story involving a unique Canada/Africa initiative. Suitable for all ages especially kids aged 5-12. 

Two worlds apart – Gulu in Africa and Chelsea in Canada – are brought together when Lara, and her mama Rose see children getting sick from the burning of oil lamps.

“Could there be another way?” they wonder and yes, there is another way – a solar way, one ray of light at a time. This inspiring tale, for young and old alike, is based on a true story. With fossil fuels and climate change threatening to destroy our planet, it introduces children to important issues of our times.

Essence & Origins

The Wakefield library is proud to present “ESSENCE & ORIGINS”, a collection of photo images by Robert Vaillancourt.

Through digital blending multiple original photographs, Robert challenges the viewer to discover his/her own understanding of what they are looking at. Interesting textures, colors, forms, and shapes come together to create a unique new look at otherwise familiar impressions.
