Single-Use Battery Recycling Drop-Off

Did you know you can drop off your used single-use batteries at the Library for proper recycling?

Bring in any used primary batteries including all AAA, AA, C, D, button cell and 6 and 9 volts. To avoid the possibility of a short circuit, you are asked to put masking tape over the terminal ends of lithium, button cell, 6 and 9 volts and sealed lead acid batteries. Additional information on how to prepare your batteries for recycling may be found at on the Raw Materials Company website. Batteries will be collected and recycled by RMC Inc.

Batteries may be dropped into the container located just inside the Library entrance by the Borrower Services desk.

Let’s all keep batteries out of landfills and do our bit to help the environment.

Fairy Happenings!

One of 52 Fairy Doors gifted to the residents of the town.

One of 52 Fairy Doors gifted to the residents of the town.

The Library has been invaded by fairies…thanks to local artist Corrine Donnelly. On display until mid-January, Corrine is exhibiting a range of works as part of her exhibit Fairy Happenings. In addition to the traditional hanging exhibit, Fairy Happenings includes a twist. Corrine gifted 52 handcrafted fairy doors around town with instructions to those finding them to bring them to the Library to be incorporated in the exhibit. A number of doors have been brought in and are now part of an additional exhibit in our main display case. Come by to check out Corrine’s work and see these wonderfully fantastical doors.

Read more about Corrine and this exhibit in Miriam King’s article in the Bradford Times.

You may also read Corrine’s artist’s statement.
