Holiday Hellos - Spread Joy in Our Community
While your schedule might get busier around the holidays, many others' get quieter and lonelier. For our second year now, the library is collecting holiday cards and greetings from the young – and the young at heart! – to share with seniors and other isolated members of our community. 

Drop off your holiday card or artwork at either branch by December 12, and help spread joy in New Westminster.

December Artist - James Lawson
Come upstairs at the Main Branch to the gallery panels and see James Lawson's photography exhibit, Compelling Perspectives. Fascinated by the ‘back stage’, James explores behind the performance to places where things are stored or discarded, away from view. He is visually inspired and influenced by such artists as Edward Hopper and Walker Evans.
