48 Hours in Prince Rupert

Prince Rupert might receive two and a half metres of rain each year, but that's in the winter. Come summer, it's all late sunsets and jaw-dropping beauty.

Barb Leonard (outgoing director of the Friends of the Library society) presents a cheque to Chief Librarian Joe Zelwietro for $13,000 to complete the purchase of a new microfilm reader/scanner system. This new microfilm/fiche reading technology allows patrons to read old newspapers as well as sending content online. Mrs. Leonard received a bouquet of flowers as a token of gratitude for her years of contribution to the Library. The Friends of the Library has been crucial in providing financial support for library projects including organizing 10 years of successful Novel Idea auctions, and is a vital component of a healthy library for our community.

Friends of the Library are seeking new members. Interested? For more information, call us during open hours: 250-627-1345 or better yet, visit us in-person today.

Author Reading with RON SMITH: "The Defiant Mind: Living Inside a Stroke"

Tuesday, June 20th @ 7 p.m.
Multi-Purpose Room (Public Library)

...

He suffered a stroke, and survived to tell his tale. "What is a stroke?" This is the question that plagues Ron Smith as he emerges from the carpet bombing of his brain. The Defiant Mind: Living Inside a Stroke is a first-person account of a massive Ischemic stroke to the brain stem. Smith takes the reader inside the experience and shows how recuperation happens, the challenges of communication, the barriers to treatment, the frustrations of being misunderstood and written-off, the role of memory in recovering identity, the power of continuing therapy, and the passionate will to live.

"Beautifully written by an accomplished writer and now stroke survivor making a clear point that defiance (with unconditional support) is the first step to making hope a reality." -- Jean Woo, Heart and Stroke Foundation

I have good and bad news. The good news is we are still in the lead as of this post, the bad news is we're about to lose it.

One community has mobilized so qui...ckly they are out pacing us and will most likely take the lead today unless we stay committed each and every day.

We still have until June 18th to go, so it's still anyone's game here folks.

Please share and vote 4 times (every person can use Facebook, Twitter, Google and email each day) at:

https://www.bcaaplayhere.com/…/f2dcc39d-3b38-50cb-82b4-71ce…

Thank you everyone for all their support, our efforts have certainly raised other communities to up their game - so let's up ours!
