Darwell Public Library Staff and Society members would like to thank all the individuals and families that came out on Saturday August 20th to support the Annual Book Sale and celebrate the Grand Opening of the Library Expansion.  The book sale was a great success, so much so that the Darwell Library Friends Society has decided to extend it and open the Book Shed again this Saturday August 27th from 1pm – 4:30pm to continue raising much needed funds to support the library.  The Grand Opening celebration was also a fantastic event to be apart of.  A steady flow of children, families and individuals made their way through our doors to explore this exciting new space.  There were lots of laughs and smiles as elegant party masks, colourful canvas bags and beautiful buttons were created and showcased in our wonderful new programming space.  We would also like to extend a huge thank you to the many volunteers, government departments, community groups, individual people and families who funded, donated or otherwise contributed to the completion of the expansion.  Some of the major contributors include Lac Ste. Anne County and the Lac Ste. Anne County Family and Community Support Services Grant, the Alberta Culture and Tourism Community Facility Enhancement Program Grant, Alberta Gaming Liquor and Cannabis Commission Casino Funds, the Summer Villages of Westcove, SilverSands and Southview, the Darwell Public Library Society, the Darwell Library Friends Society and all the library patrons and community members who have worked tirelessly over the many years to see this project through to completion.  Thank you for giving this community such a magnificent place to Read, Discover and Connect!
