Check Out Our Green Display!

In spite of the winter storm over the weekend, spring (and the colour green) is still coming! 

To ease the transition, be sure to check out our display of green books in the CafĂ© Corner at the Vera Bracken Library.  While some titles are “green” in the environmental sense, others are simply green in colour.  All, however, are guaranteed to provide much needed distraction from icy sidewalks, snow-covered vehicles, and 90 km/h wind gusts.
