Where are the SADI books?
Survivor’s Hope Crisis Centre provides crisis intervention, support and information to survivors and secondary victims of sexual assault in north-eastern Manitoba.  Their programs and outreach are described on their website.  They have a collection of books in their office and over 10 years ago they approached our library with a view to making their books more available to the community at large.  As a result, a number of books with information on the steps to self healing and recovery from violence were placed in Pinawa Public Library for use by the local public and beyond, through interlibrary loan.  SADI is the educational division of Survivor’s Hope and the books they placed with us were dubbed the SADI collection and given a section of their own.  In an effort to make these books more discoverable, we recently we integrated the SADI books into our Adult Non-Fiction collection.  Their call no. still identifies them as SADI, but they are now side by side the Library’s books on the same subjects.  Please ask if you need help finding these or any books in the Library.

Nordic Noir
Crime fiction is the most read section of our Library.  In 2015 we promoted the Nordic Noir genre, purchasing new titles and hosting a series of evening presentations.  A Nordic Noir booklist brochure was created at that time, but our number of books in this genre has grown to the point where it’s no longer feasible to maintain a printed record.  To find out what’s new, search Nordic Noir in our online catalogue.  You can then refine your search by author, series, date of publication, etc.  Or scroll to the bottom, check New Books and hit the little ‘refresh’ icon (arrows) to see a list of these 9 new Nordic Noir titles (more on their way):
