Library support well-deserved

Editor:

I have recently had the pleasure of working with the excellent staff of the White Rock Library, and what a wonderful gem this is in such a great community!

For many years now we have run our Philosophers’ Café out of the library and have had nothing but courtesy and support from the librarians.

In addition, I have been working with the White Rock Social Justice Film Society recently, and Lucinda Lyall has put all her library facilities at our disposal for advertising the films. It seems that nothing is too much trouble.

I approached Lucinda recently with a book that I had published and asked to present it at the library and I was overwhelmed with the support and encouragement I received in this venture, also. Robin Braidwood provided me with posters and media exposure and was even there helping with the technology for the presentation and putting out the chairs. The event was an amazing success mainly due to her efforts.

I give the highest praise to all the staff of White Rock Library and particularly to Lucinda and Robin who are so connected to the community and its needs.

We all need to support our library and long may it thrive!
