50 stories: Connecting – online and in person #hcpl50

This week’s story is actually two stories from Michelle Richardson who visits our Highland Grove branch. Both are about the library as a place to connect, both in person and online.

“Our local library is a community hub of activity. Since we visit the library seasonally, and live permanently elsewhere, we appreciate being able to meeting up with neighbours at the library. This is often where we learn of local news and happenings, and where we always enjoy friendly greetings and conversations with Joanne, our wonderful branch supervisor.”

“We are seasonal library users. Our cottage is in the Highland Grove area and, while we come to the cottage to “get away from it all”, there are times when we need to be able to connect to the rest of the world. We particularly value the Internet service which allows us to send and receive important communication, and DVD borrowing privileges which allows us to bring the world of entertainment in.”
