May 2013 brings special Salmonberry Days events:

For Kids:

Children aged 3-12 are welcome to join the famous Salmon Berry Hunt. Each week a salmonberry is hidden somewhere in the Dunbar Library.  Find it and you can enter your name to be eligible for a prize. The salmonberry gets smaller and harder to find each week!

Where is Sheldon?  Each week during Salmonberry Days, Dunbar’s favourite puppet will be photographed in a different neighbourhood location.  Correctly identify a location and you will be entered into a draw for a prize.

For Adults:

As always we will have a Salmonberry Days display with the best books by local and world class authors on gardening nature, sustainable living and other interesting topics.

For Everyone:

Enter the Ode to the Salmonberry poetry contest!  Write an original poem singing the praises of this lovely, juicy, salmon-coloured berry.  All poems will be posted in the library. Prizes will be awarded in a number of categories.
