EPL marking Ontario Library Week

The EPL is commemorating Ontario Library Week from Oct. 15-21. This year’s theme is “Ontario Public Libraries—It’s not by the Book Anymore.”
Librarian Shirley Sheppard invites everyone to come out to their open house. “There will be free coffee and dainties, free draws, and giveaways,” she noted.
Remember the library is the most inexpensive place for education and entertainment. It is located on Front Street overlooking the beautiful Rainy River.
