Wanted ~ Shavings & a Freezer

We are in search of a working freezer and wood chips.

Any kind of freezer will do, so long as it works.

For the wood chips, the bigger the chips the better, though we'd take sawdust too.  It's for livestock bedding so can't have metal bits in it or anything sharp.

If you happen to have these please let us know your price and we will come pick up!

TVFD ~ Thinking Ahead...

Hard to believe with all this spring rain that the TIVFD is planning on another hot, dry summer with probable fire bans in place. 

We recommend that if you enjoy summer campfires, invest in a CSA approved Propane Campfire appliance. 

They are safe, economical, long lasting, produce no smoke, sparks or embers, and can be quickly shut off, leaving no problematic ash or hot charcoal.  You can even char your marshmallows over them! They are allowed during Provincial fire bans.

Be fire smart this summer.

Missing from the library: 

The Couple Next Door book (there is no name on the borrower's card)

Game of Thrones season 1 and 2

Call the Midwife season 4

Borrowers cards:

A gentle reminder that adult dvds have borrower's cards.

Adult fiction books have borrower's cards.

Please sign the card, write the date of borrowing, and place the card by title in the box.

Many dvds have been out for a long time.  If you have finished watching, please return it so others can enjoy.

Thanks for your continued support of our great little library.

Woolgathering ~ Open House April 23rd

The Woolgathering is a retreat for rug braiders and hookers and wool related crafts, first started 10 years ago by Beth Bolster.

TIVFD ~ Driveway Clearance

The TIVFD reminds you that all driveways must be cleared to a regulation MINIMUM hard roadbed of 12 feet wide and a MINIMUM of 15 feet vertical clearance from all obstacles. 

Since this is the season for clearing up your winter storm damage of branches and limbs, now is a great time to make sure your driveway meets the regulation for emergency vehicle access. 

You will be surprised at how much new growth has  occurred since the last time you clipped and cleared your road. 

Our emergency vehicles are wide and tall, with big side mirrors and antennae, and although you might not notice the overgrowth when driving your own vehicle home, we can’t access your place without the proper roadway clearance.





As we who catch the 8:00 ferry know you have to be here earlier and earlier. However, I learned today that the 8 ferry will be full from Penelakut for swimming lessons until mid-May. Just passing on this, so if you need to be somewhere the 6:15 ferry is going to be your best choice if you have to be somewhere in the early morning hours. Summer is coming...
