SAT SEP 19TH- POP-UP PARKING LOT PARTY WITH SEARSON & GUESTS!

Due to C-word restrictions, we will not be hosting our annual BUPL Rocks concert fundraiser this year (insert sad face). Instead, we've decided to host an outdoor pop-up concert in our parking lot!

We've managed to line-up Eganville's sweethearts Searson (OMG!!) alongside opening acts Steve Agnew, and Cody & Schroeder!

Eganville's Finest will be here with their food truck, and we've got some cool swag sponsorship from Whitewater Brewery!

This is a socially distant event, so we ask that everyone respect spacing, bring their own chairs, and stick to your own bubbles! Limited entry of 100 people will be permissible.

We ask that if you can walk to the event, please do. Otherwise, parking at the Tourist Information Booth, the clinic parking lot (below the library) and around the perimeter of Maple and Wallace Streets, without blocking any driveways, are appreciated.

Entry will take place up the walkway alongside our library gardens, with a $10 fee payable upon arrival. All proceeds go directly to BUPL. This is an accessible event.

Thank you for your continued support in keeping us a vital part of your community!

Library gardens are open! All kinds of free and edible parishables are popping up! Look for the "Pick Me" signs to know what's ready to pick.

The Little Free Pantry is still open for public use, but for your safety, we ask only a few things:

1. Take what you want, leave what you can.
