Calling Gardeners!

Gardening in a small place this year? Why not check out Square Foot Gardening: A New Way to Garden in Less Space with Less Work by Mel Bartholomew. And while you’re in our building, you can get packets of seeds for free. See our Seed Library display in the main lobby.

Library’s Windows are being Conserved

We are partway through the process of conserving the windows in our 1919 heritage building. In late 2016 and 2017 the exterior of our main-floor arched windows and upstairs windows on three facades were done. The $400,000 cost was covered half by generous private donors and half by Parks Canada’s National cost-sharing program for heritage places.

Once the exterior windows are completed, we hope to tackle repairs to the masonry. The necessary funding has yet to be raised.
