Tumbler Ridge Public Library takes a look at its services

The Library has evolved into a place providing a wide variety of services: free internet access, government forms, children, teen and adult programs and workshops, an occasional theatre, access to any and all information, computer training, a venue for teas and the like: the trend being a growing emphasis on computers and technology.

What happened to curling up with a good book?

Well, we still have readers.

Here are the results for the most books read 2007: Female: Sarah Perry 365 books Male: Doug Sack 71 books Family: Angie and Mike Ekins 149 books

The Tumbler Ridge Library partners with Wolverine Nordic Mountain Society to bring the community the popular Itchy Feet Series, held every winter. Residents who travel to far flung places share their adventures with what is usually a library full house. Other partnerships are with the Tumbler Ridge Museum Foundation which has hosted ?Fossil Road Shows? where residents and visitors can bring in their finds for assessment and evaluation.

Although an antique show is not in the works for 2007, a Chinese antiquities show gave residents the opportunity to display furniture and works of art of an astonishing depth and range.

Congratulations to Michele Burton, Librarian and her staff for bringing these experiences to the community!
