2019 Coast Salish Speaker Series

in the Ann Graves Reading Area
The Library will host the third event in the 2019 Coast Salish Speaker Series. Join X’welwelat’se (William John) as he introduces us to the “Coast Salish Concepts of Time + Space.” X’welwelat’se is a Lummi Elder, storyteller, and retired educator from Ferndale High School and Northwest Indian College, where he taught Lummi language classes. The Coast Salish Speaker Series was underwritten by a grant from San Juan County and supported by San Juan Islands National Monument, Lopez Island Library, San Juan Island Library, and Friends of the Orcas Island Library. The fourth event in the Series will be in August.
It’s nearly time to blast off for the Library’s 2019 Summer Reading program. Official blast off date is June 23rd with registration open on June 19th. This year’s theme is “A Universe of Stories” to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11’s landing on the moon. We’ll be bringing in an inflatable planetarium on July 20th, hosting a skype tour of NASA’s Space Vehicle Mockup Facility, as well as many other out-of-this-world events to keep kids reading and learning throughout the summer. Please join us as it’s sure to be a fun ride!
