Pie for the librarians!

We had a wonderful surprise on Monday, August 13. Patron Fred Jong came in with a homemade key lime pie with all the fixings plus a note that read “To the librarians of Sechelt. I want to thank you very much for providing a wonderful service to all the people in town and surrounding area. All of you are very patient, kind, and forgiving when we ask silly questions and can not find an article or file which is right in front of our face. I just want to let you know that you are all amazing and the professionalism that you all give to the users of the library. I hope you know that you are appreciated and loved for the work you do at the library. Keep up the fantastic work!” Thank YOU Fred!
