Library Corner for the week of September 30, 2019

On behalf of the Lac du Bonnet Library and staff, we wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving. For those leaving our community for the winter, we wish you safe and memorable travels and look forward to seeing you again in the spring.
For travelers who use eLibraries Manitoba during their absence please remember to renew your Library memberships and also to notify us if you have updated any of your contact information.
For new residents to the community who may not be familiar with our Library, memberships are free to Town and R.M. citizens and also to residents of the R.M. of Alexander 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 access audiobooks and ebooks through eLibraries Manitoba and magazines through RBDigital. If you have any questions, our staff would be happy to provide our assistance.
