We have been adding some great new titles to the Library’s Adult Graphic Novel collection. Here are just a few of the recent acquisitions which can be found in the collection on the 1st floor (titles are linked to the Library’s catalogue):
by Michael DeForge
From its opening pages, Ant Colony immerses the reader in a world that is darkly existential, with false prophets, unjust wars, and corrupt police officers, as it follows the denizens of a black ant colony under attack from the nearby red ants. On the surface, it’s the story of this war, the destruction of a civilization, and the ants’ all too familiar desire to rebuild. Underneath, though, Ant Colony plumbs the deepest human concerns—loneliness, faith, love, apathy, and more. All of this is done with humor and sensitivity, exposing a world where spiders can wreak unimaginable amounts of havoc with a single gnash of their jaws.
by Jeff Lindsay; Illustrated by Dalibor Talajic

Are you interested in gardening, but don’t have the space or the know-how?
A community garden is a great way to connect with your neighbours in a fun and healthy way, working together to produce food and other plants to share among volunteers and people in need.
If you are interested in finding out more about how community gardens work and whether BWG would benefit from one, please join us on Thursday, April 17 from 7-8:00 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose room here at the Library. Light refreshments will be provided.
If you are unable to attend but would like to provide comments, please email email@example.com or contact Tami Kitay at 905-775-5369 ext.1403.
