Calling Gardeners!

Our Seed Library has resources to get you started this season. We’re offering packets of seeds for planting indoors — beans, peas, tomatoes, lettuce and other vegetables.

We also have a growing collection of books on gardening and seed saving. One example is Starting Seeds: How To Grow Healthy, Productive Vegetables, Herbs and Flowers From Seed by Barbara W. Ellis.

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.
