The public library in the Town of Slave Lake was completely destroyed on
Sunday, May 15, as a result of a huge forest fire. The beautiful new
Rotary Club of Slave Lake Public Library had just opened in 2010.

Support for the library is pouring in as libraries,bookstores, publishers and other library-related organizations have been in touch with Peace Library System to see how they can help the library rebuild. Here's what you can do:

*Donations of new or nearly new books* (no more than two years old) can
be shipped to Peace Library System headquarters where they will be
catalogued, processed and stored until a temporary library opens in
Slave Lake. Please ship - prepaid - to:

Peace Library System
8301 -- 110 Street
Grande Prairie, AB T8W 6T2

_ATTN: Books for Slave Lake Library_

*Cash donations* can be made by going to the library's web page at and
clicking on the "Make a Donation" link.

The Slave Lake Library and Peace Library System thank all who make a
contribution to rebuilding the library.
