Mental Health Awareness Week

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.

Thank you” to all those who joined us for our annual Spring Tea, and to our Board Members and Staff for providing the refreshments.

At this time of year, we like to welcome back all our patrons who travel during the winter months and also welcome new residents to our community.  New residents are encouraged to stop by the Library and see what we have to offer.  Our staff will be happy to assist you in becoming a member.  Memberships are free to residents in the Town and RM of Lac du Bonnet and to residents in the RM of Alexander (Bird River area).

What’s New?
