Welcome to the Dawson Creek Mun. Public Library blog!

New things are happening at the library and this can be your first stop to keep up with us -- or try to!

Along with our blog, you will be able to find our newsletter starting next week. The newsletter will be available at the front counter next Wednesday, the 19th. The newsletter will be running every 2 months and will feature articles and items of interest to our library patrons.

NEW FURNITURE IN OUR YOUNG ADULT SECTION --- We have added some comfy chairs and a coffee table to our YA section. This section is our pet project right now, as we are trying to encourage more youth in our community to use the library. We are adding new books every month, and in January we are planning a paperback blitz. We hope to add a lot of new paperback titles to this section.

Check in with the Dawson Creek Library -- and check out a great book.
