Summer is upon us and that means school is out for a while, hopefully grown ups will get some much deserved time off work, and the family can spend some quality time together.

A great place to do that is right here at the Temiskaming Shores Public Library.  This will help alleviate summer holiday worries over the price of gas, delays or cancellations of flights and the high cost of just about everything!  Isn’t this music to your ears?

No matter how young or old we are, we all like to see people who look like us, or feel the way we do, and live in places similar to ours, represented...
