A new month, a new year and a new adventure with all of the cold weather this early January! Outfitted with our winter gear, LiLi and I have been cruising the neighborhoods to visit community shelters in the FVRL region. The freezing temperatures in the lower mainland have brought on a high demand for warm places and meals. Visiting the shelters with LiLi provides opportunity for individuals to learn about their public library and make new library accounts! People are delighted to hear about the free library programs such as Storytimes, Film evenings and Yoga & Mindfulness classes, or perhaps the resources for finding employment and research. The best part – the library is open to everyone!
