  • Do your kids have a book recommendation? We would love to hear them! You can pick up a book recommendation slip at the library or simply post it on the members’ Facebook group. Just tell us the name of the book and why they liked it along with your child´s name and age.

May’s Spotlight is on C.S. Lewis

Clive Staples Lewis was born in Belfast (which was then in Ireland) in 1898. His is best known for his works of fiction, including The Chronicles of Narnia. Lewis wrote more than 30 books, which have been translated into more than 30 languages and have sold millions of copies! Lewis attended Oxford University, with his studies interrupted by the first World War (he eventually went back and finished his studies after the war). Lewis and fellow novelist J. R. R. Tolkien were close friends. They both served on the English faculty at Oxford University. Come check one of his books out today!

(Don’t forget the CEL AGM tomorrow – Wed. 8th May 19:30)
