Cash donations can be sent through the library’s website, or write a cheque payable to the Slave Lake Regional Library Board and send it via the Peace Library System to the address above.

This morning, Q&Q sent off 13 boxes of books. Thanks to all the publishers and to Canpar for providing the shipping, with help from Anne McClelland, executive director of the Book and Periodical Council.
