Library Corner for the week of September 23, 2019

On behalf of the Lac du Bonnet Library Board and Staff, we wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday; and for those leaving our community for the winter, we wish you a safe and enjoyable vacation and look forward to seeing you all back at our library in the Spring.

For any travelers who use eLibraries Manitoba during their absence please remember to renew your Library membership and provide us with any changes to contact information. We do clear passwords for access to our online services if the memberships are no longer valid.

For new residents in the community who may not be familiar with our Library, memberships are free to residents of the Town and R.M. of Lac du Bonnet as well as to R.M. of Alexander residents in the Bird River area. Non-resident memberships are also available for a small fee. Library staff will issue a username and password for those patrons who would like to manage their Library account (i.e., renewals, holds, etc.) from home, or who would like to access audiobooks and ebooks through eLibraries Manitoba, or Magazines through RBDigital. If you have any questions, our staff will be happy to provide our assistance.
