A good news story! Slave Lake Library, which burned down last summer, has been rebuilt. They are having their grand re-opening (it was a brand new building, full of new books, that was lost to forest fire) on February 11th. I will not be in Alberta for the occasion but I do feel like part of it. I donated a copy of Trouble in the Trees and SCBWI donated money. The pictures on the library website are beautiful – so inspiring! Let’s h0pe it (and all the other libraries in Canada) stand strong for a long time to come!
