April 29th, 2019, Rockland, ON – The Clarence-Rockland Public Library is postponing this year’s gala to give our community a chance to recuperate from the devastating floods currently happening in Clarence-Rockland and surrounding areas.
Join us on Saturday, October 5th 2019 at 7 PM to celebrate not only the Library’s 80th anniversary but also the resilience of our community as a whole. Clarence-Rockland is the true definition of a community where there is a feeling of fellowship with others, resulting from sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. The Library could not be prouder of the residents who are putting their heart and soul into helping their friends and neighbours through these difficult times.
The Library has worked diligently to become a true pillar of the Clarence-Rockland community. For 80 years, we have offered high quality programs, services and reading materials, always with the greatest concern for accessibility. Being part of this community and serving its residents is our primary function and a responsibility we take very seriously.
“Being part of a community that cares so deeply is truly amazing. The time and commitment that individual residents, as well as all city employees, have put into saving homes is extraordinary.” stated Catherina Rouse, CEO of the CRPL. “The Library staff and I want everyone to know that we are committed to helping in any way we can. Any information you need we can find for you, just stop by and ask. Also, keep in mind that public computers and Wi-Fi are always free of charge and available for anyone to use. Please know we are here for you.”
