IS E-LIBRARIES NOT WORKING? NO WORRIES!:

Recently, elibraries has updated their site and unfortunately, it doesn't work with the program we are using. But have no fear! We have contacted elibraries and we have found a way for it to work! If you're wanting to update, so your elibrary will work, please contact Cherie by phone or email with your full name and number!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ART SUBMISSIONS:

With our annual Art, Wine & Music fundraiser coming up, we are looking for some fresh new faces to join our lovely artists! If you or someone you know is interested in the arts and would love to put some of your work on display, then come visit us at the library to inquire about displaying some of your pieces!

NNELS: National Network for Equitable Library Service:

NNELS is a site dedicated to making different format copies of books for Canadian readers that have difficulties reading in print format.

Three of the categories include:
- severe or total impairment of sight or hearing or the inability to focus or move one's eyes,
- the inability to hold or manipulate a book, or
- an impairment relating to comprehension.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 MONEY! MONEY! MONEY!  Hopefully, that caught your attention :)  It is critical that we continue to receive Provincial and Municipal funding to keep the library operating. PLEASE- take a few minutes (the short version of the survey took less than 2 minutes for those who completed it online at the library) and answer the simple questions about the importance, use, and suggestions you have regarding your library. Click HERE for more details!

BOOK SALE:
Our book sale shelves and paperback rack are adjacent to the Archives wall... always great prices, no worry of damage, late fees, or loss.   All funds raised benefit the Library: purchasing new books or movies for our collection, or in program development.  

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WELLNESS RESOURCE CENTRE: Along the West wall, our Resource Centre features all information on services available in the RM of Springfield, from physical to mental health and awareness. We are fortunate to have the many facilities we do, including the support of the Andrew Dunn Org., who donated funds to create the centre. If you are a care provider, within the RM, please see Cherie to ensure that your organization is represented. We feel it important that members of the community have private access to information normally found only at medical centres. If you seek information not found in our displays, please send an email to Cherie, or give her a call, and she will accommodate your request.

Please note that all the fabulous art displayed in the library is available to purchase. Our "Springfield Signature Artists" are Ida MacKenzie, Susan Selby, Genevie Henderson and photography by Mariel Gobeil. Prices are very reasonable, as you are purchasing Originals, very often for the same price, or slightly higher, than that of framed prints elsewhere. Come and take a look! We're sure you'll find something you'd love to adorn your home, or as a gift for someone special.
