Fort Rupert Library set to open this week

The Library Response Team strikes again! Once again the LRT has been in action, this time at Fort Rupert, a First Nation community just outside Port Hardy where they spent the week setting up for a new library. The word is they have nothing but HIGH PRAISE and respect for everyone they met in the community, especially the volunteers who assisted in setting up the library.

Of course, the Fort Rupert community was very gracious is handling all accommodations for the team. The Write to Read libraries would not be possible except for the cooperation between all parties involved. Special thanks to Barb, Carol and Bonnie and Margaret for creating the library system. Everyone is now looking forward to meeting Her Honour Lt Governor Judy Guichon when the library is officially opened this week.

Aside from cataloguing and shelving, it appears somebody made a precise account of all the books donated. Apparently the exact number of books available for loan is 3,458! So another thanks must go to old those fine folks who helped out by donating the books in the first place. Happy reading!
