2019 was an exciting year at the Lennox and Addington County Museum and Archives and we celebrated the end of the year by doing an update to the online database!
The past couple of months have consisted of large amounts of digitization, coding format of records for our online database, learning programming languages like Python, digital preservation planning and providing new ways to access archival records. I currently focus on strategies to increase digital access to the archival collection at the Lennox and Addington County Museum and Archives.
Experience the spirit of the season at Lennox & Addington County's 6th annual ‘Christmas Tree’ event on Tuesday, December 17th from 6 - 8 pm. This festive event takes place at the L&A County Museum and Archives, located at 97 Thomas Street East in Napanee.

Each year as the business of December approaches I shift my reading to light, cozy, predictable and delightful Christmas stories. I love that in just a few hours (not unlike a Hallmark movie) you can enjoy a little brain candy and escape from the hustle and bustle. Below are a few Christmas cozies new to our collection this year that I have enjoyed so far:
Andree Duval, Relief Librarian for the Lennox & Addington Libraries, recently enjoyed The Butterfly Girl by Rene Denfeld, which Margaret Atwood describes as a "heartbreaking, finger-gnawing, and yet ultimately hopeful novel."
The Province of Ontario recently introduced the Regional Development Program, which will invest more than $100 million over four years to support business growth in eastern and southwestern Ontario communities.
The Program supports eligible small- and medium-sized businesses investing in new equipment and training to expand operations in these regions, and also provides support to municipalities and not-for-profit organizations investing in economic development projects.
Lennox & Addington County really is a beautiful place, as evidenced by the number of amazing photos floating around on social media.
