Library day set

As part of its 75th anniversary celebrations, the Parksville and Qualicum Beach branches of the Vancouver Island Regional Library will be hosting a customer appreciation day on Sept. 28 and 29.

“We wish to invite our customers to come and share their early library memories with us as we recognize our 75th year of providing library services,” said Jamie Anderson, Library Manager for Parksville at Vancouver Island Regional Library.

The Parksville event kicks off at 2 p.m. on Sept. 28, while the Qualicum Beach event starts at 10 a.m. on Sept. 29.

“Our regional library system was started under challenging circumstances during the Depression era, and many Vancouver Island citizens deserve our recognition and thanks for their pioneering efforts and perseverance,” said Janet Delgatty, library manager for Qualicum Beach.
