Canning Library News

Canning Village Library and Heritage Centre

Due to high heating costs, the Library will remain closed until May 1, 2015. Because the weather has been so poor throughout March and we’re staffed entirely by volunteers,  it has been difficult covering the library hours.

On a similar note, the Library committee is actively seeking donations to cover our monthly expenses. If you’re able to make a donation, please check out the Gazette and fill in your information. Charitable donation receipts will be issued for your tax purposes. Make your cheque payable to: Fieldwood Heritage Society, marked Canning Library & Heritage Centre.

We are planning to reopen the Library Friday, May 1st at 5 PM. The hours will be Tuesday and Thursday 2 – 5 PM, Friday 5 – 7:30 PM, and Sat 10 AM – 1 PM.

Renaming of the Library to The Merritt Gibson Memorial Library will be celebrated on May 9th, 2015, as well as commemorating the 20th anniversary of the opening of our  beloved community Library. Hope to see you there!
