Library Closure

Caring for the health and well-being of staff and library patrons is very important to Chinook libraries. Therefore, in order to assist with efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, all branches are currently closed. The Re-open Sask Plan has put public libraries into Phase 4, which currently has no date. We cannot wait to prepare our libraries for your return. In the meantime, please make use of our growing collection of online resources, or call us at (306) 773-3186 or (306) 778-2752 to find out how we can help you further.

"Political journalists Chris Lamb and Will Moredock have mined the past few centuries of political history and unearthed a treasure trove of humorous exchanges. The Art of the Political Putdown is a collection of over 300 witty verbal jabs and ripostes from politicians around the world (though the focus is on American politics), all of whom share a common sharp tongue. Interspersed with 11 brief essays analyzing the use of humor and wit in various political contexts, this comprehensive collection of witticisms, scathing burns, and mic-drop-worthy insults is an even-handed, intelligent, and lighthearted political humor title that will give readers from the Left and Right something to laugh about"-- Provided by publisher.
