While he may not have found the time get to a book every month this past year, his reasons for creating this goal for himself have to do with the large impact books have had on his life. Glenn Thibeault is currently the MPP for the Sudbury area. While he still enjoys the feeling of a good old fashioned in his hands, he has also started using the public library’s digital services like......

I can remember making a 20 slide power presentation in Grade 10 about paranormal orbs that I’m sure my Tech teacher Mr. Longmire had to try pretty hard not to roll his eyes at. But I digress. This is all to say that......
