I am honoured and thrilled to be able to write this article as the new Library Director. I believe that in this time of mass technological change, and information overload, that libraries have never been more important to community life. We are here to assist you with navigating the online world; to offer you a warm, welcoming place to connect and learn; and to provide the very best books, dvd’s, magazines, databases and other online resources available.
On Nov. 4, we had a wonderful celebration for our new children’s area with a jaw- dropping show by local magician The Amazing J. Thank you to everyone in our special community for making this new area possible, with special thanks to major donors, the Gibsons Lions Club, Howe Sound Pulp and Paper, and the Gibsons Library Foundation. Please come and check out our renovated fresh space and grab one of the many new children’s books to enjoy. Bouncing Baby and Preschool Storytimes are also back in action: a great way to connect and improve literacy with the little ones in your life.
