At several sessions in March held at Dublin United, Elaine Weir of Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health Unit presented information about the Bridges Out of Poverty program. In 2013 the Unit launched a new initiative aimed at tackling poverty in our community. There is no question that poverty is one of the critical determinants of poor health.
Recently, all our books, DVDs and CDs in the adult non-fiction collection were catalogued and are searchable on-line in a "cloud" database available at LibraryThing.com. We will be continuously updating the catalogue, particularly our Adult Fiction and children's collection. Funding for this cataloguing project was provided through the Norfolk Legacy Fund.
