Lest We Forget

novemberThis is just a reminder, that the library will be closed Friday, November 11th for Remembrance Day. There will be no regular programs that day, but we will be open on Saturday, November 12th at 10am.

Please feel free to drop any returns into our blue box on the front steps. We will be happy to take care of them on Saturday, and you will not be charged fines for the day we are not open.

Remembrance Day services begin at 11am at the cenotaph behind the library building.

In Flanders Fields…

25241478Most countries cannot boast a poem as being something they are famous for, but In Flanders Fields by John McCrae is certainly known as Canada’s most important poem, by far. This year, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the writing of this poem, a new book entitled IN FLANDERS FIELDS: 100 YEARS, WRITING ON WAR, LOSS AND REMEMBRANCE has been released. It is a collection of poems, essays, and more by authors, poets, historians and historical figures from Canada, who have put down their thoughts about the war, the poem, and the poet John McCrae.

We have this book at the library, and it might be a great way to begin this important week. Drop in to see what else we have in our special Remembrance Day window, as well. You’re bound to find something to take home.

Lest we forget.
