CALVIN LIBRARY
The library at Calvin has not had an active librarian for several years. I have filled in a bit since I resigned when Hans retired; however, the library needs an active committee to keep it going. I am going to be moving this fall to Nanaimo where my daughter lives. I am happy to give a job description for the role, as I have said before. In fact, it would be best if several people worked together to form a team, lessening the responsibility for any one person. It does need, however, a team leader to oversee the library. There is a digital catalogue of the books, pretty well up to date. If there is someone or several folks who have had any experience in this area, the library could certainly benefit from your wisdom and interest. Please speak to Colleen. Thank you.

SCRABBLE SATURDAY
Come out and join us for a fun game of Scrabble on Saturday, September 24th.

Everyone Welcome!
