The History of Fernie Heritage Library

oldpostoffice1

If you want to learn about the history of Fernie Heritage Library, I suggest taking a few minutes to do so because the story is fascinating, to say the least. When I read the history of the library I was surprised at how much of a community effort it was and continues to be so to this day.

The very last part was my favourite:

“Community Commitment:

Fernie Heritage Library is a monument to Fernie community spirit. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and uncounted hours of volunteer labour turned a worthy but tired city property into a legacy for future generations of Fernieites.”

I love it when people come together, and in this case through many generations, to create something beautiful. Who knew that community, the thing I tried to get away from as a 20 year old, would be the thing that makes my eyes teary – in a happy way.

Fernie Heritage Library’s Dicken’s Christmas Party

Dickens' Christmas Party Fernie BC Library

From the Facebook event page:

Dickens’ Christmas Party: Saturday, Dec 22nd, 2:00-4:00 pm

Join us for cider, stories, treats, and activities for all ages. This annual library event is a wonderful chance to connect with your neighbours. The afternoon concludes with a rousing community Christmas carol led by local community musicians. All are welcome.”

I’m a big believer in the Fernie Heritage Library and their programs but this is, honestly, one I try to avoid because it’s so popular. I’m not a fan of so many people in tight spaces. But I do know it’s a good time and hosted by amazing people.
