Q+A with Em The Librarian

She’s the new girl in town, and only the third Library Director that Pemberton has had, following in the foot-steps of library founder Jan Naylor and her successor Shannon Didier Ellis. Given that the Library is, in many ways (my bookish biases might be coming into play here, but I’m happy to debate the case) … Continue reading


Social Media Sessions at the Library: Q+A with Lisa Richardson

It’s always dangerous when Shannon Ellis and I get together – we’re 2 idea-dervishes with solid over-commitment issues and are easily spun into each other’s brainstorming vortices, only to find ourselves in a Kansas of busy-ness. So it’s probably a good thing that we only manage to sit down for lunch twice a year. Last … Continue reading

Tree-planting … Continue reading

Monthly Film Club gets into gear at the Pemberton Library

Pemberton has some great gathering places and hangout spots (the Skate Park on a sunny day comes to mind) but when the mercury plummets, the snowbanks build and dark arrives promptly each afternoon around 4pm, one of the coziest places to hang is the Pemberton and District Library. And now, thanks to an initiative of … Continue reading

Make Art and Trade it at MADE with the Pemberton Library’s Artist Trading Card Project

It’s hard to find a good use for a business card in Pemberton… Sure, you can tack a few to the noticeboard at the Mt Currie Coffee Co, but off-line “networking” in Pemberton is more likely to happen at drop-in kids’ gym or after a yoga class, at the Legion or Beer and Burger night, … Continue reading
