If winter comes….can Spring…please hurry. It is so much more fun to go to the Library during sunshine hours and longer evenings. And once again there are lots of wonderful books awaiting our members.
Adults aren’t the only ones who love books. We see so many little ones enjoying the children’s area. So, with her usual care, Nancy has added 16 new books this month for the tots to enjoy. So parents make a trip and enjoy these new additions with your wee ones.

The three very successful Book Clubs that operate in the Village of Lions Bay are making my job very easy with this edition of From Our Shelves. Each club has chosen their favourite books during the last 10 months, with a hope that you may also enjoy reading their choices during the summer months.

The Levee produced an opportunity for residents to come together, and receive information on the many activities that we have in the Village. Of particular interest is the material Sally Pollack and the ESS volunteers have donated to the Library, regarding emergency preparedness data like “Plan for the Worst”a kit survival information for humans and pets.
The technical issues which caused the temporary closure of the Library are now resolved and its regular opening hours schedule resumes with immediate effect.
Over the past few months meetings have taken place with Council, Architects and specific groups to best utilize the upper level space of the Community Hall (and indeed the Hall as a whole).
During these sessions many ideas have been discussed amongst the various committees of the Village. Many do relate to the present Library, but none have at present been definitively resolved. We have agreed at these meetings that more space is, indeed, needed in the Community Hall for all the special committees and events that work within our Village.
