Joe Longo has officially left the building - following a retirement tea hosted by library staff, in his honour May 29. We all wish him well as he begins the next chapter of his life.
So it is, that on my first day on the job, the top of my to "do list" is my first Review column! I shall accept the challenge of maintaining the status quo that has been established by Joe, but I will need some more practice time!
As we look ahead to the arrival of summer, one of the annual highlights on our library calendar is the Niagara Falls Horticultural Society's Rose Show, which will be held in the LaMarsh Room Thursday. If you have never looked in on this event, you will be amazed at the artistry and beauty of the displays put together for judging by these local gardeners. Doors open for the public from 4 to 8 p. m.
Our Communities in Bloom displays this month highlight perennials and the Niagara Peninsula Geological Society.
Sunday through Friday, we will be hosting a display in our lobby - Gateway to the Greenbelt. This exhibit was created by Black Creek Pioneer Village in partnership with the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation - and demonstrates the significant contributions to the quality of life in Ontario made by the greenbelt countryside. As we look ahead to summer outings with the family, you may find some of the resources and information of interest.
The featured painter and artist in the Rosberg Gallery for June is Niagara Falls resident Anna McKechnie. Her exhibit of abstract paintings is meant to be a melding of the colour and natural beauty she sees around her in Niagara. The gallery is open for viewing during library hours.
Big Screen Tuesdays continue over the summer, too. Our next film will be shown Tuesday and the film is a comedy, starring Tyler Perry and his/her eccentric family in Madea Goes to Jail. Call the library or check the website for more information. The film begins at 7 p. m.
Over the next weeks and months, we will continue to offer insight and information to you about your library and the activities and resources available to you. If you have not visited one of our branches or our website ( www.nflibrary.ca) recently, you don't know what you are missing. Please make a point of dropping in soon.
