Welcome to the TNRL’s monthly e-newsletter! This monthly communication features upcoming programming, initiatives, collections, and more.

One Book, One Community

The TNRL has partnered with Thompson Rivers University and the Cariboo Regional District Library to offer a region-wide One Book, One Community (OBOC) program. The 2021 reading selection is Five Little Indians by award-winning Indigenous author, Michelle Good. 

More About OBOC

Five Little Indians follows the lives of Indigenous youth as they navigate life in 1960s Vancouver after years in a BC residential school.

"...with compassion and insight, Five Little Indians chronicles the desperate quest of these residential school survivors to come to terms with their past and, ultimately, find a way forward." (HarperCollins Canada)

OBOC will feature book discussion groups, in-class teachings, public lectures and film screenings, and a conversation with the author in spring 2022.
