Summer BBQ A Success!

Our second annual Spring Barbecue Fund Raiser held at Sobey’s on Baseline Road was another great success. This year the weather was more cooperative and we were able to surpass our goal of $500.00. A big THANK YOU to all those who volunteered for this event and those of you that came out to support our endeavour. The volunteers enjoyed the camaraderie; chatting with those who stopped by about the community, the Library and the Friends; and sampling the delicious fare. All said it was a very worthwhile activity. Thank you also to Sobey’s, our sponsor, for supplying us with this wonderful opportunity to expand public awareness for the Strathcona County Library and for us, the Friends of the Strathcona County Library. Finally, a special thanks to Ron Dick who tirelessly organized the BBQ and made sure everything ran smoothly.

Books Fly off the Shelves at the June Book Sale

The one-day book sale on June 15 saw a lot of action. Thanks to all those inveterate readers who came and bought books, the Library took in $1,340! Thank you to the volunteers who staffed the sale.
