We have a new public wireless network for patrons to use in and around the library. We had to reconfigure it for technical reasons, so there is a new network name—GPL Public—and a new password, which you can get by stopping in or reading the sign in the library window. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused during the changeover; thank you for bearing with us.

Do you want to know more about landlord and tenant legal issues? Or about disability income assistance? Becky Quirk from the Nelson Advocacy Centre will be at the library on Thursday, Jan. 29 to present talks on these two topics. At 10 a.m. she will speak about landlord/tenant law and at 11 a.m. about Disability Income Assistance. Each presentation will include time for questions and answers, with a break between, so you may come for one or both of these talks.

We have had a few donations of DVDs for our collection lately; thank you so much to those who gave them to us. But we can certainly use more, as our budget for buying new ones is limited and the DVDs are popular items.

We have gotten rid of most of our videocassettes, and the shelves are looking a little bare. So if you have some DVDs around that you have watched enough times, please consider donating them to the library so that others may enjoy them. And if you want to watch them again, you can always come to the library and borrow them!

Our annual general meeting will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 27. We’ll begin with coffee, tea, and goodies at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting will commence at 7 p.m.

Annual reports from the board chair, librarian and treasurer will be presented, and new board members nominated and elected. if you are interested in becoming a board member, let us know. The job involves monthly meetings, plus helping with fundraising activities as you are able.

This meeting is usually over in about half an hour, but we need as many of our patrons as possible to come, as some of our funders like to see a good representation of our membership at the AGM.
