Sam’s Book Collection
Sam Tobias was a young child from Kemptville, who had a love for fishing and enjoyed visiting the North Grenville Public Library, especially Sarah’s Circle with Library Sue. Sam is remembered dearly by the community and an annual fishing derby is held in his memory to raise funds for “Sam’s Book Collection”. Through his collection, his love of books lives on. Donations are gratefully accepted; whether by cheque or via the NGPL’s CanadaHelps page, please note that your donation is for “Sam’s Collection” Fund.
Sarah’s Corner and Circle
Sarah’s Corner and Circle are named after Sarah Badgley, in her precious memory. Sarah’s Corner is the name we have given to the children’s area overlooking the river and garden. Sarah’s Circle is a pre-school program offered, free of charge, to parents/ caregivers and their young children. It is designed to introduce young children to reading and libraries.
Sarah’s parents, Sue and Kerry, request that donations in her memory be given for the development of children’s programs at the Library. The Badgleys are also hosts of our popular Saturday program, Juice Jam. Make your donation by cheque or through the NGPL’s CanadaHelps page, and please note that your donation is for “Sarah’s Circle” Fund.
