Join Penelakut and Stz’uminus Knowledge Keeper Patrick Aleck Jr. for a drum circle ceremony to welcome 10 drums into our library for community use. The drums were made as part of a library workshop in 2019 with Plains Cree artist Felix Thomas and we are ready to birth them into our collection through ceremony.

When: Wednesday Sept. 22 from 5:30 -7:30 PM

Where: Diana Krall Plaza — weather permitting —

90 Commercial St. Nanaimo, BC — outside Nanaimo Harbourfront Branch —

Who: Family-friendly. All ages are welcome to share in this traditional drum ceremony!

Bring your own drum if you have one or you can try out one of ours.

In the event of rain, we will be inside the Large Meeting Room
