Are you in need a book for October’s Goodreads book club "witches" theme or a fan of horror films? If so, check out Julie's review of The Remaking by Clay McLeod Chapman.
During the month of October, we are requesting that our program and event partipants across Lennox & Addington take a short survey that will help inform our programming lineup into the New Year and beyond.
Completing a survey will give you chance to win a $100 Indigo gift card. You may complete a survey (and earn a draw entry) for each program you attend in October.

With my thoughts in digitization and updating our online database (and let’s face it, since it's October I am also thinking about apple pie recipes) I often forget to slow down and remind myself of how researchers interact with resources at the archives.
