Over 100 people attended the Burns Lake Public Library’s Fam-con on Jan. 25, 2017. The event was part of Family Literacy Day and it was styled after comic con types of events. Children had fun making crafts and ID badges, they enjoyed a photo booth and a costume centre, and they had a chance to meet local authors. In addition, every participant received a book for their personal library and a movie pass to see The Minions on Jan. 28. The event was sponsored by Lake Literacy, the Bulkley Valley Credit Union and Saunders Book Company.
