Zinio is here! Marigold now provides Zinio digital magazines. It includes many popular magazines, including Rolling Stone, Canadian Living, O Magazine, Good Housekeeping, Runner's World and many others. You may read these on-line on your tablet or smart phone. You must have a library card and an account with Tracpac. There is no cost for this account, if you have a library membership. An account can be easily set up with Joan, if you donít have one.

The renovation of the library is in full swing. The board members and many volunteers spent a day packing up all the books and lugging them up the stairs to a storage trailer where they will stay while the work is being done.

A reminder about the Christmas Music Concert ó The Sounds of Joy String Quartet ó being presented by the Teichroeb and Butler families on Tuesday, Dec. 10 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Joan invites you for refreshments beforehand. Please let Joan know if you are planning to attend.

On Tuesday Dec. 17 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., pre-schoolers to Grade 3 are invited to a Winter Land Story Time. Come and enjoy wintertime stories and share your own favourite things to do in winter, while sipping hot chocolate and marshmallows.

New to the library are Orr-My Story-a biography of Bobbie Orr, Beyond Belief-my secret life inside Scientology by Jen Hill, The Flood of 2013, and The Great Escape: A Canadian Story by Theodore Barris.

The library will re-open Dec. 3.
