60th Anniversary of the Salt Spring Library

We are celebrating the library’s 60th anniversary in February 2020 and below are the events we are organizing.

60 Reasons Why We Love Our Library

We’ve put up a large bulletin board and created a submission form where library patrons can post responses to four questions about the library.
Please let us know why you love our library, by clicking on the the link below and answering four questions:

Why We Love Our Library

The responses (we’d love yours too!) will then be shaped into the 60-reasons-we-love-our-library poster to promote our 60th Library Anniversary on February 22, 2020!

Feel the Library Love until submissions end Friday, July 19th at 5PM!
