Oct 14, 2016

The Cariboo Regional District Library will be unveiling a carving by local carver, Mat Johnston, at the Quesnel Branch Library on Monday, Oct. 17 at 4 p.m.

Johnston donated his carving to the Quesnel Branch and it is now a feature piece in the library. The carving depicts an owl from the popular Harry Potter series and includes space to display books.

“After I carved this owl I thought it would be perfect sitting in the Quesnel Library. As both a teacher and a carver, I am happy to donate my work to encourage the love of reading in our community,” explains Johnston.

CRD Electoral Area A Director, Ted Armstrong, expresses his appreciation, “The artistry in this piece is incredible. On behalf of the Cariboo Regional District, I would like to thank Mat for donating such a wonderful carving to be featured in our library.”
