We are pleased to host Rachel Salt to discuss her book Your Plastic Footprint: The Facts About Plastic Pollution and What You Can Do to Reduce Your Footprint. This virtual author talk will take place Wednesday, September 29, at 7:00 pm on Zoom. 

In her presentation, Rachel Salt will discuss the astounding statistics about plastics and their impact on the environment. And most importantly – what we can do to make a difference. Salt is also the author of The Plastic Problem. She worked as head writer, researcher and producer for AsapSCIENCE, a YouTube channel dedicated to science education with over 8 million subscribers. She has a Master’s Degree in Environmental Biology from the University of Guelph. 

“I’m very excited about this author talk,” said Hayley Allan, the library’s programming assistant. “I’ve watched AsapSCIENCE all throughout my high school career. I cannot wait to start university with this awesome resource by my side”. Emily Smith, the library’s adult and senior services specialist, added, “We are lucky to live in a community that is passionate about sustainable living and environmental well-being. I think individuals of all ages will appreciate and learn from this educational talk”. 

This month, teens can also join Heidi on Tuesday September 21st at 5:30pm for a glitter mindfulness jar workshop. All materials will be provided. The library’s tutors also return this fall with free, weekly one hour sessions for students in kindergarten to grade 8. OWLS Tutoring sessions are 6-8 weeks, starting Sept 14, and are available Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 4-7pm, and Saturday from 10am- 1pm.
