Please allow me to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the newly appointed Director of Library Services at Strathmore Municipal Library. I started working in this position on April 19, 2022, and I'm delighted by the warm welcome and support from the Board and staff. I'm confident that collectively we can deliver high quality programs and advocate for library services in Strathmore.
I am writing to you this month on a beautiful sunny day. The robins are singing, it feels like spring, and there’s a sense of anticipation as winter fades away. The library is getting busier, and we have enjoyed welcoming back familiar faces as well as our many new members. Since memberships became free in January, 367 residents of our community have signed up for brand new library cards!
Spring is coming, and the days are getting warmer and lighter. And yet I know we are all feeling the heaviness and weight of the conflict and upheaval rocking the world right now. We hope you are finding healthy ways to cope. If you do need help, please reach out. Our local Addiction and Mental Health Clinic can be reached at 403-361-7277.
