100 Years, 100 Stories
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of our Beaverton Branch 1913-2013, Brock Library is publishing a
commemorative book with your stories and your artistry of the library.
To help you tell your story, Brock Library has enlisted the help of a writer-in-residence, local author Lynn Campbell.
Writing workshops will be held at the Beaverton Branch from 10 am to 12 pm on Saturdays,
June 15th and July 20th.
Vanessa Campbell is also available as our artist-in-residence to assist you in creating original art which will be displayed at the
100th anniversary party in December. Images will also be included in the commemorative book.
Illustration workshops will be held at the Beaverton Branch from 1 pm to 3 pm on Saturdays,
July 6th and August 3rd.
Be a part of the 100 years, 100 stories commemorative book celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Beaverton Branch!
NEW COMMUNICATION METHODS TO OUR PATRONS:
In an effort to assist with the management of materials you have on loan from BTPL,
we have recently instituted some new methods of communicating with you.
If you have an email address on file with us, you will now receive email notification alerting you to any materials coming due in three days’ time.
This allows you time to return or renew your items before they go into overdue status.
If materials do go into overdue status, you will receive an automated phone call informing you that there are materials due back to the library.
This phone contact will occur on the first day that an item is overdue and will continue up to three days consecutively or until the item is returned or renewed.
Making you aware of overdue materials in this timely manner will assist in avoiding or minimizing overdue fines and help to ensure equitable access of library materials to all of our patrons.
If you would like to take full advantage of this new service, please ensure that we have current email and telephone information on file.
The staff at all of our branches will be more than happy to update your patron record and answer any questions.
You can bring your mobile devices and laptops to any of our three Brock Twp branches and get free Wi-Fi access.
