The library will come to you

One by one, the bright blue Library bags line up inside the work areas at each one of the four Library locations. They are organized and filled with favourite authors, great movies that someone may have missed, biographies and many other interesting items that have been requested. All these bags are for the Visiting Library Service. By the 15th of each month a delivery is selected, prepared and ready to be picked up by a faithful volunteer for those who cannot get to the Library due to age, illness or disability. If you or someone you know might be interested in more information about the Visiting Library Service please call us at 905-356-8080. We are also taking applications for those wishing to volunteer for this important service and are grateful to all of our volunteers who help bring a smile to those who are unable to visit us.

Fans of Melissa McCarthy won’t want to miss her most recent true-story depiction of Lee Israel in Can You Ever Forgive Me? Celebrity biographer Lee Israel made her living in the 1970s and '80s profiling the likes of Katherine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. When Lee is no longer able to get published because she has fallen out of step with current tastes, she turns her art form to deception. The movie shows at the Victoria Avenue Library on Tuesday, February 12 at 6 p.m. It runs for 107 minutes and is rated 14A.
