Librarian’s Corner

Welcome to the Library. Enjoy your visit!

During COVID-19 everyone five and older is required to wear a mask in indoor spaces in BC regardless of their vaccination status, including our Library. There is no need to show a vaccination passport to enter. Simply wear a properly fitted mask and socially distance from others not in your party.

Enhanced cleaning will make your visit safer. As well, we ask that you not bring in food nor bevvies, keep these for your home or outdoor enjoyment! Masks should fit entirely over the mouth, nose and cheeks. A face shield may be worn only if unable to wear a mask due to a medical condition. Masks may only be removed temporarily in the case of hearing impairment issues.

Until further notice children’s activities will be offered through pick-up only and our large meeting room is currently unavailable.

Do your part to keep our staff, patrons and neighbours healthy. Please, if you are sick stay home.

Happy New Year!

Library On-Line
Book Club

Texas, 1934. Millions are out of work and a drought has broken the Great Plains. Farmers are fighting to keep their land and their livelihoods as the crops are failing, the water is drying up, and dust threatens to bury them all. One of the darkest periods of the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl era, has arrived with a vengeance.

In this uncertain and dangerous time, Elsa Martinelli—like so many of her neighbors—must make an agonizing choice: fight for the land she loves or go west, to California, in search of a better life. The Four Winds is an indelible portrait of America and the American Dream, as seen through the eyes of one indomitable woman whose courage and sacrifice will come to define a generation.

The next meeting of the Book Club will be held Monday, January 31st at 7 pm via Zoom. Everyone 16 and older is invited to join! Please contact Marieve for further details.
