Last weekend, Emma Devin, a holistic birth and postpartum Doula hosted her second Hormonal Health Workshop at the library. The vibe has high and women filled the space with curiosity and insights.

The brain behind our summer film series is back! Sure to be a wonderful array of films thanks to Yaz's wonderful eye for beauty and drama. We're really looking forward to this enriching aspect of the library to return.

We are incredibly excited to bring you bilingual Spanish/English storytimes this fall thanks to our volunteer Mariana!  Children and their caretakers of all genders and language backgrounds and abilities are very welcome to attend. 

Computer Station available starting next week!

We have sourced a computer from local BC non-profit ReUse Tech BC. Located in Burnaby, RTBC supports low-income learners, libraries and non-profits. Check them out here .

We hope to provide several computer stations for patrons and well as free printing. The computer stations will provide a space for patrons to explore our catalogue, for research purposes or personal use. As many libraries require identification and a library card, our services do not. We believe in providing free, access to information digitally or materially to our patrons and public. We hope to provide computer literacy skills to those who need. 

In case you didn't know...we provide wifi as well to anyone who needs the connection!  We encourage patrons to come hangout and do research, update your blog, etc.
