We hope you are enjoying your summer! The members of the Summer Reading Club have been enjoying some of their summer at the library doing various games, crafts, treasure hunts and other activities, and collectively have read for several hundred hours, earning prizes along the way. Our final day is Aug. 19, when the children who have read the most will receive medals (generously donated by the Royal Bank of Canada) for their efforts.

Don’t forget our new logo photo contest— there are only a few short weeks to take a photo of you or someone else reading under a tree. There are seven categories to enter, and prizes will be awarded for the best photo in each. The deadline is Aug. 30, and details are available at our website,

We’ll be holding another sidewalk book sale on Labour Day, Monday, Sept. 1 in front of the library from 9 a.m. till 3 p.m. There will be a selection of hardcover and paperback books, CDs, DVDs, audiobooks and magazines for sale by donation. And your donations of used books, etc. are welcome; just drop them off at the library during regular open hours. Thank you!

The Greenwood Library will be presenting a free online webinar presentation on personal planning in September. Come and learn what steps you can take to make and register your care plans.

Getting your affairs in order gives you peace of mind and takes the burden off family and friends. A will is not enough—there are other legal documents to cover your health care wishes and financial affairs in case you need help during your lifetime. Find out about representation agreements, enduring powers of attorney, and more. More information will be available in September.
