Tall Ships Weekend
Transition Brockville presents Erik Andrus, Director of the Vermont Sail Freight Project, on Sunday June 16 at 2:00pm in the Buell Street meeting room.
The Vermont Sail Freight Project is a sail powered food trading adventure! Basically they've designed and built a sailboat to bring farm and forest fresh food to markets near Lake Champlain Vermont (close to Quebec border). Wow!
Board Meeting in June
Please note: In June the board will meet on the 24th instead of the 17th at 5:00 pm in the Buell Street Meeting Room. Everyone is welcome.

Library Upgrades Wireless Equipment
Do you have a dial-up connection or limited monthly bandwidth allowances? If so, consider visiting the library with your laptop to do all your software updates and downloads (music, videos etc.) Due to a grant received from Southern Ontario Library Service, we were able to upgrade our wireless equipment and have more than doubled our wireless speed!
Thank you May Court Club of Brockville
We recently received a grant from the May Court Club. The grant money will be used to purchase a Daisy Reader and to replenish our talking-book and large print collections!
