Earlier this week I attended our County of Brant Public Library Board Meeting via teleconference. Amazed at the work they are doing to connect digitally with residents, provide services and to even help those who research Covid-19 with our extra computational resources and more!
For us at home an expansion of digital services has meant we can access more stories from hoopla digital to make up for not being able to access print books for now as pictured here. Kudos to library staff for all they are doing to serve and innovate in a time of crisis.
Connect with your library from home. Lots of value there. ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you so much Marc Laferriere Councillor for Ward 2 - Paris.. We appreciate your support. If dropping off donations at our location during regular business hours, if you are comfortable in doing so, you can knock on the door and leave the donation at the step and we will grab it from there.

I hope this federal wage subsidy is broadly adopted - and that Ottawa is willing to extend it beyond 3 months if required. I’ve been neglecting local businesses (and most other businesses) because I don’t know if I’ll still be getting paid in a few months. Something has to be done to boost consumer confidence or the only people supporting small businesses will be nurses and truckers (during the 4 hours per day that they aren’t at work).
