Issue No. 42, February 2022 
Blind Date with a Book

February is the month of love, so rekindle your love of reading with some blind dates suggested by our matchmaking librarians. Between February 1-14, fill out our questionnaire to identify your 'type' and we will set you up with 3 'dates' we think you'll love. Pick up your brown paper packages, and remember, don't judge a book by its cover!

Service Updates

The library will be closed on Sunday February 20 and Monday February 21, 2022 for Family Day. Happy Family Day!

Building envelope work continues at the Main Branch. Expect some disruption in the Library plaza area until early February. Gardens will be replanted after the work is complete.

Due to the evolving nature of the pandemic and the omicron variant, all programs and in-person meetings have been temporarily cancelled or moved online until further notice. Please check our calendar of events frequently for notice of any changes and program times. All other library services are currently still available.

Stay tuned for our upcoming Podcasting Series which will be presented later this spring, as well as our drop-in employment sessions facilitated by WorkBC, which we hope to reinstate as soon as we can do it safely.

We continue to adapt to new public health orders. Currently masks are required in all indoor public areas. Check out our COVID page for all updated info, or follow us on social media @NWPLibrary.
