50th Anniversary A Success

Swan River Library’s 50th Anniversary A Success

A large crowd was in attendance to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the library. Maureen Bowles gave a welcome and introduced guests. Greetings came from Councillor Lance Jacobson-Town of Swan River, Councillor Brian Burick-Municipality of Swan Valley West, Public Library Services Branch Denise Weir, Mr. Ron Kostyshyn MLA., and Library Chairperson Brian Hunter. Librarian Kathy Sterma spoke of her memories being welcomed in the library as a child and hoped children still felt that excitement today. Everyone spoke on the value of volunteers and service clubs to the library. It was a special treat to have Joan Macooh, Mabel Cooke, Beth Brown and Bernice Watts former librarians in the crowd. Following the greetings cake and refreshments were served. Visiting and reminiscing continued as people viewed the photo albums dating back to the 1960’s.
