News at Your Library
(DURHAM 12 September 2018) In October, the West Grey Public Library will mark Ontario Library Week with activities to bring to mind the role of books and other library resources – including the people there! – in your life.
First, the Library is looking for local residents to submit brief accounts of how the public library – West Grey or other libraries – has positively affected their lives. Accounts of childhood memories in the library, helpful library staff or volunteers, programs that were particularly meaningful, book club experiences, help with research or finding jobs, people you met through the library or any other description of ways in which their local library has had a positive effect. Contributions may be sent to email@example.com by October 5, 2018.
And all branches will invite patrons and visitors to be “spine poets” – participants line up books so their titles (on the spines) make a poem, sentence or story. Each addition changes the direction of the piece – nobody knows where it will end up! Visit West Grey Library branches during Ontario Public Library Week (October 14 to 20) for chances to win prize books!
