The PPL understands that sometimes you just want to sit on a patio and read.  Maybe you don’t have a patio?  Maybe it’s winter?  Maybe there are mosquitoes?  The solution?  Our idea for the new 4 season library lounge/patio area!

We are hoping to raise some funds for this fun idea through the Pinawa Foundation in the month of May. During May the Pinawa Foundation will top up donations by 40%!

Cheques can be made payable to The Pinawa Foundation, dated in May 2022 and given to Carol Findlay by May 31, 2022.  The memo line would need to say Pinawa Public Library.  E-transfers can also be made to fndlyc@mymts.net.  Please include your name, mailing address and Pinawa Public Library in the message box.  Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $25.00 or more.   Thank you and looking forward to seeing you at the patio!

Friday, April 22nd is Earth Day, but really shouldn’t every day be? There are so many little things that can be done on a daily basis that make a big impact.  Reduce your packaging – don’t buy single use plastics, use reusable shopping bags and food/drink containers, compost, recycle, plant a tree, bike or walk, don’t buy new, embrace hand-me-downs, donate unused items.  It’s important to realize that nothing is ever thrown away or garbage –it’s just moved to another location.  Landfill is exactly that – filling the land with garbage.  Be mindful of your choices and decisions.  Libraries have been embracing the art of reusing since the beginning.  Read, Return, Repeat.
