Vernissage and new exhibition by Carole Gravel
We are pleased to announce a new exhibition by Carole Gravel. Everyone is invited to the opening which will be held on Saturday, March 9 at 2 p.m. The artist will be on hand and refreshments will be served.
Carole, who recently moved to Hinchinbrooke has been interested in all types of arts and crafts since she was a teenager, beginning with painting by number and mosaics. Later, as a young adult, she explored Japanese embroidery, petit point, macramé and three dimensions. In 2013, she discovered false stained glass and acrylic paint and has been painting every since. The exhibition presents a few of her works which, she hopes will please our visitors.
Recruitment of volunteers
As you know, the library is managed solely by volunteers. We are currently in need of certain services: the loan service, communications and publicity, and fundraising. Do you have a few hours to offer? Come and talk to us!
Very good news! Free membership for Dundee, Hinchinbrooke and Huntingdon
As of 2019, membership in the library will be free for the citizens of Huntingdon, Dundee and Hinchinbrooke thanks to an agreement concluded with their municipality. The membership fee is unchanged for citizens of other municipalities.
Subscription to digital versions of Le Devoir and The Montreal Gazette newspapers.
Take a break at the library to read these newspapers on one of our computers. It's free!
Film loan period
Films are now loaned for the same period as the other documents, that is 21 days instead of just 7.
In spite of the support from the municipalities, population and members, the library still needs to raise funds to cover all its expenses, so we will be holding an Easter bake sale on Saturday, April 13 and a garage sale on Saturday, June 1. Keep us in mind when you are doing your spring cleaning!
