There’s something every day

The new director at Midway Public Library shares her first column with the community.

What a whirlwind this new adventure has been! As some of you may know, I have recently taken over the director’s position at the library and have been enjoying every minute of it! From meeting new people to seeing old friends, this is the life!

We have lots of fun things happening in the coming weeks so I hope to see more of you soon.

Our children’s programs have started and everyone is having fun so far. There is something going on every day that we are open so if your kids or grandkids are looking for something to do, bring them on in!

We’ve recently started an Adopt a Book program here and I hope it will be a great success. The way it works is we have a display at the library that lets our patrons know the books we are wishing for and they choose the book they want to “adopt”, they then donate the cost of it or purchase the book and donate it to the library. A label will be placed inside the book saying who donated it. You can adopt a book for yourself, for a family member or anyone that you can think of. July 19 marks the fifth anniversary of the JLB Memorial River Run/Walk. I’m looking forward to being a part of it this year and am amazed at the support from the community and local businesses. As you may know, the JLB Run raises money for locals undergoing cancer treatment as well as raising money to support the library.

This is a fantastic event and I hope to see everyone out there! Registration and pledge forms are available at the library and on our website midway.bclibrary.ca.

I look forward to hearing about any new books you’ve read or anything you recommend so drop in when you can. The air conditioning is lovely!

– Library Director Nicole Ferrier
