The Friends of the Wakefield Library will be holding their Annual General Meeting on Sunday October 29 in the library at 4:00 p.m. All interested community members are urged to attend.

The next few years will be challenging for us as a number of board members will be leaving us. As a result, new members are urgently required to assure the continued viability of our organization whose sole purpose is to support the activities of our beloved library. We would like to identify prospective new Board members in advance of the Annual Meeting so that they can be confirmed at that time. If you are interested in becoming involved please let us know at or call Eileen at 819-459-1975. Hope to see many new faces!

Biblio Wakefield Library is proud to host a special reading of “Coming to Wakefield”

Joan Garnett, Norma Geggie, John Hardie, Jo Leath and May Lou Van Schaik have been meeting as a writing group for five years. What has emerged is a wonderful little book: Coming to Wakefield (and other stories).

The stories embrace the title of the book but also offer childhood memories, adventures, and even a little fiction.

Books will be available for sale with all proceeds donated to La Maison des Collines.
