Canadian Library Workers Day

Good afternoon and Happy Canadian Library Workers Day!!

 The Canadian Federation of Library Associations has proclaimed today, October 21, 2016 as Canadian Library Workers Day.

 “Canadian Library Workers Day is recognized during Canadian Library Month which is an annual celebration of libraries, library workers and the services they provide to their communities.”  Please take a moment out of your day today to express your appreciations to all of your co-workers for what they contribute to the integral services that we provide day to day for our Library users.

October social is on at the Guv’nor!!

Good afternoon everyone!!

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and that none of us suffered any ill effects from all that rain and wind yesterday!

 If you are all turkeyed out maybe you will want to join your colleagues for some Thursday night pub grub at the Guv’nor!  Yes, the votes are in and the majority of respondents have voted for the Guv’nor so a reservation has been made for 6:00 Thursday  October 13 in the name of NLHLA.  Wish I could see you there, but have a wonderful evening!

Well, it looks like we are on the cusp of fall so what better way to cope than having another social. We are inviting you all to meet on Thursday October 13 at 6:00 for food and conversation!

We narrowed it down to possible restaurants which are listed below with the links so that you can have a look at the menus:

  1. The St. John’s Fish Exchange

Could you respond to the Survey monkey request to indicate which restaurant would be your preference?

We are asking that you RSVP by October 11,2016 so that we can make reservations.  You can send your response to me at
