Sharing the following news item posted by our colleagues from EXLIBRIS this morning:

 

 

The Fogo Island Public Library has more than 14,000 books. Children go there for homework help, fishermen to download work documents and just about everyone else in town to use the Internet. It hosts card game nights, colouring sessions and Easter egg hunts. It is the only library on the island, an hour’s drive by ferry from the rest of Newfoundland and Labrador.

 

It is closing on Oct. 31.
