Winter Reading Program: We had excellent participation with our Winter Reading Program Reading Log. We had 11 students turn in their logs for a total of 111 hours read in the month of February. All 11 had their names entered into the Northern Lights Library System Kobo draw. Unfortunately, none of our student’s names were drawn. Great reading everyone!

What a fabulous day for our library! I went to the Library Sale that the wonderful folks at the Lac La Biche Library was holding. They are in the process of moving into their fabulous new facility at the Bold Center and were selling off surplus goods. They had shelving, furniture, chairs, garbage cans, book ends.. oh yeah some books too. So we have four sections of tall shelving, three super cute red kiddie chairs, a kick step stool, a rolling magazine cart, a 6' tall weeping fi... More...

Eustace Conway has made his home in the Appalachian Mountains, mastering the art of self-sufficient living. Elizabeth is now on my MUST RE... More...
