Is there a clas­sic story you’ve al­ways meant to read? Maybe you loved the movie, or picked up the gist of a fas­ci­nat­ing sto­ry­line in con­ver­sa­tion. Maybe you started it years ago, but lost track of your copy be­fore you made it to the end (funny story – I started Jane Eyre in my teens, but had to re­turn the book to the li­brary be­fore I fin­ished. I didn’t dis­cover un­til it was as­signed in grad school a decade later that I’d only been about 30 pages from the end!).

The li­brary has es­tab­lished a ded­i­cated Clas­sics sec­tion, across from the Adult Graphic Nov­els and near the group study ta­bles, and we en­cour­age you to stop by and browse. There are won­der­ful sto­ries there – just ask Mardell if you’d like a rec­om­men­da­tion! – many in beau­ti­ful edi­tions, and more will be added in the com­ing months. If you want a novel that’s proven its value, that gives a peek into an­other time and place, and that may very well have helped shape some of the nov­els you al­ready know and love, check out a clas­sic!

For more in­for­ma­tion on other pro­grams, events and ser­vices at the li­brary, visit our web­site at www.drumheller­li­brary.ca, or call us at 403-8231371. We’re also on Face­book, Twit­ter, and Pin­ter­est!
