February is “I Love to Read” month. For the entire month of February, each time you visit the Library, you are entitled to enter one of the nine book draws.  The draw will be made on Friday, March 1st.  Enter often!  Good Luck!

Mark your calendars we are hosting the 7th annual Celebrating Stories on Thursday, April 4 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.  We are pleased to have Gordon Goldsborough join us for an evening of storytelling based on his book “Abandoned Manitoba: From Residential Schools to Bank Vaults to Grain Elevators” a runaway success in 2016, becoming the top selling nonfiction book of the year in Manitoba.

Armed with a drone and deep curiosity about local history, scientist and historian, Gordon returns with more compelling abandoned sites across Manitoba in his new book “More Abandoned Manitoba: River, Rails and Ruins”.  Join Gordon as he discusses his adventures across our province, discovering how we got here through the architecture of our past.
