Library programming has primarily moved online

Recently I read an anonymous quote about this year that resonated with me: “2020 is not the year to get everything you want; it is the year to appreciate everything you have.” While we continue to face a spectrum of individual and community challenges from the pandemic, I find these words helpful. At the library, our staff dearly misses being a gathering place and the robust activity within our space that occurred pre-COVID. When we shift our focus to gratitude, the magic of the library prevails in the continued connections and growth patrons feel with each other and themselves through reading, learning and expanding.
I am grateful to work in a place that celebrates and protects the right to have differences of opinion. We strive to ensure our collection of books, DVDs, magazines, and databases reflect the diverse perspectives, interests and tastes of our community. As we are required to spend more time at home, and are restricted from many of our usual activities, there is an opportunity to find solace in reading, listening to an audiobook or watching an independent film on Kanopy.
Our library programming has primarily moved online for the time being: check our website for the full event calendar that includes weekly Storytimes with Pippa, Teen and Tween Book Clubs, Conversational Language classes, Movie Club, Open Microphone nights and more. We are also offering COVID safe individual clinics in our Plexiglas vestibule on topics such as how to effectively use Zoom. Please know we want to be as helpful and supportive as possible to our community at this demanding time – call us at 604 -886-2130 and/or check out our website at www.gibsons.bc Take care!
