...No security beams any more.

Can the librarians still fire phasers and launch photon torpedoes when necessary?

After they get the launch code from a Commissionaire, yes.

Check that, Commissionaires lost the contract at the end of 2016.  I see it's Footprints now.

Library Lane Launch

June 5 | Library Lane
Come experience the launch of Library Lane, the walkway between Fort and Broughton Streets at 11am. Library Lane will be animated with a pop-up library, OLiVe, the GVPL's literacy outreach vehicle, button-making, and DigiLab demos.

Does the Victoria Library use pesticides on their books? Got one that smells like it(I'm having trouble reading it) . I imagine bugs coming in with books is an issue they like the glue and whatnot.

It's a book on the Uplands if that helps.

Wouldn't that be book bugs?

A reminder that your library card now gives you full access to Linda.com

This could translate into thousands of bucks worth of learning videos ... for free.

I've already accessed about $400.00 worth of training videos on a subject I've recently become interested in - gratis courtesy of my GVPL.

J/k

Seems kinda cool if these videos are useful.

I guess I need a new library card.  Mine is from the mid 90's.

Hey, my fellow Oak Bay person! I think we are reading the same book, also from the library. Just checked - my copy doesn't have a strange odor. 

 

So how are you finding the book, other than smell? I'm a little disappointed in it. Lots of filler it seems and the writing is very flowery. Think I will be skipping big sections of it.

Up until I started feeling dizzy(possibly placebo effect) and put it in a plastic bag, I'm finding it interesting but definitely did a lot of skimming.

So the community meeting room there, you can see how it will have after-hours access capability.
