On Saturday, October 15, 2016,
the Friends of the Dorval Library were pleased to sponsor the Library Breakfast -
an annual event organized to celebrate Public Library Week.
As an added bonus, the librarians presented interactive stories.
A big thank you to all, both young and "older" who brought the stories to life.
The Friends of the Dorval Library hosted a WINTERLUDE BRUNCH on
Sunday, January 24, 2016

During the brunch, we were delighted to welcome John David “Hobbes” Hickey, member of the Storytellers of Canada

The Friends of the Dorval Library Annual Book Sale
The Friends of the Dorval Library held a sale of used books and audiovisual material from April 13 to 17, to benefit activities and services at the Dorval Library.
This activity demands a great deal of work on the part of our membership, but our volunteers never let us down. Their hard work and enthusiasm result in a successful event each year. This year, we sold a total of 4,288 items! Congratulations on a job well-done.
We would also like to extend our thanks to all of our customers, who enjoy the "win/win" nature of our sale - help support the Dorval Library and get a great book for $2 or less. Everyone leaves feeling great!
Missed it? Don't worry, we'll be back next year with more great deals. Hope to see you there.
Our Annual General Meeting
was held on
Tuesday, March 15, 2016
in the Activity Room of
the Dorval Library.
Thank you to those who joined us.
DORVAL CELEBRATES 2016
Despite a rainy beginning to the day, more than 50 people took the time (and effort) to identify their favourite book and/or author at our kiosk as part of Dorval Celebrates on August 14.
Those who participated in this activity had a chance (2 chances if they were members of the Friends of the Dorval Library) to win a $50 gift certificate to use at a local bookstore.
One lucky winner was James Lawlor, who wisely doubled his chances to win by becoming a member that day. Sean Watson won the second gift certificate. Congratulations James and Sean!
