On behalf of the residents of Bella Bella and the staff of their Thistalalh Memorial Library, I would like to thank the people in our Sea to Sky area who graciously donated their books and time, following the fire that destroyed their library and grocery store. I particularly want to thank Elizabeth Tracy and her staff at the library, Jane Reid, a passionate book donator, and Anna Gates from Lionís Bay, who donated eight cartons from her personal collection.. This successful drive could not have been achieved without the help of Buy-Low Foods, Nesters in Whistler and Squamish, Upper Village Market, Pemberton Valley Supermarket, Armchair Books and The Grocery Store.
We have collected hundreds of books, which will be shipped to Bella Bella with their grocery supplies. The book drive ends on Sunday, August 18.
