It’s time for our annual Arts & Crafts Fair, held at the Greenwood Community Hall on Saturday, Nov. 15 from 10 – 3 p.m. There will be several new crafters this year, along with some old favourites, and lots of items to choose from for your Christmas shopping list. Enter the raffle and win one of several prizes. We’ll be serving some yummy food again: two kinds of soup, buns, hot dogs, sweet treats, and a variety of beverages. That’s also municipal Election Day, so remember to cast your vote and then stop in at the craft fair before you head home. This is one of the main fundraisers for the library during the year; we thank you in advance for your support.

A big “thank you” to Vaagen Fibre Canada for their donation, which, along with an anonymous donation from a Telus employee and some money from our budget, helped us to replace our catalogue computer. The old one worked very slowly, and sometimes not at all, frustrating both staff and patrons alike. Now everyone is able to access our online catalogue with ease, and speed.

The new West Boundary literacy coordinator, Evelyn Booth, will be at the Greenwood Library on Mondays through Dec. 1 to help adults with any basic computer skills instruction they may need.

Please contact the library at 250- 445-6111 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from noon- 5 p.m. for more details and/or to register. These lessons are free, and are provided by the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) in partnership with the library. But you MUST register ahead of time as space is limited.

We’ve created a new “Staff Picks” shelf in the library, for staff and volunteers to display some of their favourite books that they have read, recently or not so recently, and to recommend them. So if you are stumped as to what to read next, take a look at it—there’s a surprising variety of different tastes in reading even among our staff and volunteers.
