Year in Review: Point Roberts Library


The year began with much mask wearing, and much time spent helping folks complete ArrriveCan forms. Nonetheless, many visitors were able to return to enjoy the library once more.

Then in June, the library’s computer system was hacked! A few accounts were affected, all were notified, and our intrepid IT and administrative teams worked tirelessly, fixing things as seamlessly as possible.

In the spring and summer, two geology walk and talks conducted by Mindy Brugman attracted attentive crowds. Kids also had a chance to paint rocks they found. In-person pre-school story time began again in the early fall, and once again the primary school visits resumed. The latest program, making presents, was noisy and joyful.

The meeting room gets more use every month for long distance classes, craft and game time, book clubs, private and public meetings, and work-related needs. It is also set up for hot refreshments. Reserve on-line at

With lots of room and comfortable seating, the library is a great place to come in from the cold or the heat during unseasonable weather. Wifi is available all the time, and the express room is open daily from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., for convenient pick-up and check-out of requested items. And then, of course, the books, movies and music! And us, your always friendly and helpful staff!
