Bring your library card to the fair at the PNE

Cardholders will be admitted for $6 on Wednesday, Aug. 22

Fraser Valley Regional Library is participating in Library Day at the Fair at the PNE.

The partnership between the Fair, Tim Hortons, Raise a Reader, and Public Library InterLINK, means that teen and adult fair-goers can get into the Fair for only $6 on Wednesday, Aug. 22 by presenting their FVRL library card. The Fair is always free for children under the age of 13.

FVRL will participate alongside InterLINK member libraries in onsite activities on Library Day.

Once in the Fair, attendees can stop by the Library Zone, near Toon City and the Popnology Exhibit, for some free activities with staff from various B.C. libraries.

FVRL will feature its Library Live and On Tour (LiLi) vehicle, the peddle-powered Book Chariot, and Playground items including green screens, KEVA Planks, Makey Makey, Sphero SPRK+, telescopes, ukuleles, and virtual reality.

There will also be impromptu story times, maker activities, games, and more!

“The Library Zone at the Fair is full of fun activities that families can expect when they visit their local library – there will be something for every age,” says Public Library InterLINK Executive Director Michael Burris.

Presenting a BC public library card grants one cardholder admission for $6 (one card must be shown per person to receive the discount and supplementary ID is recommended).

Don’t have an FVRL card yet? Visit anyone of the FVRL’s 25 locations to get a free card today. Visit www.fvrl.ca for more information.
