Annual Spring Tea

This week!  Join us at the Library for our Annual Spring Tea for volunteers, Library patrons, and friends on Friday, May 4th from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m.  The Lac du Bonnet Board and Staff like to take this opportunity to show our appreciation to those who help us year-round in so many ways.  Everyone is Welcome!

May 7th to May 13th is Mental Health Awareness Week.  The Library will be assisting the Regional Health Authority in promoting reading materials that will provide trustworthy information to empower people in making informed decisions about their well-being.  Our display table will be dedicated to Mental Health Awareness during that entire week.
