Library Corner for the week of November 1, 2021

Updated 2021/10/29

As we take time to pause and to consider the significance of Remembrance Day this year, it would be wise to remember the words of J.M. Storm: “And the truth is that all veterans pay with their lives.  Some pay all at once, while others pay over a lifetime.”  We wear a poppy to honour the courage and sacrifice of the men and women who have served and continue to serve so that we may live in peace.

 

Check our display table set out in the library set to honour those very special people we proudly remember during Veteran’s Week.

 

In observance, the library will be closed for November 11, 2021.
