Omemee, Bethany and Dunsford Libraries Bring Ontario Library Fine Relief!
Last week we received an email highlighting Ontario Library Week events. There were many mentions of special happenings in Kawartha Lakes Library branches located in Lindsay, Fenelon Falls and Bobcaygeon Including a Food for Fines partnership happening at Bobcaygeon Public Library.
Frankly, it was a rather disappointing email, so a reply was sent to Kawartha Lakes Library saying that for our rural branches it seemed as though it was business as usual and asking if the Food for Fines would at least be extended to our rural branches.
It is good to see now, that there are a few items that will include our rural libraries, especially the Food for Fines, which allows people with library fines to exchange food bank donations for their fines.
How does the Food for Fines work?

Sandwich Artist : Your Ideal Omemee Job?Omemee job openings are few and far between, though at the turn of the century there were many jobs available.
Did you know Omemee was once a day's journey from Peterborough?
Omemee was a bustling town with hotels, a furniture store, bakery, feed mill, and many other businesses.
With the increased price of gas, and the short range of electric motors, could Omemee once more become a thriving community where travellers stop for the night between Peterborough and Lindsay, or at least a 5 hour charging stop?
That possibility is one being explored by one Omemee forward thinker on the Omemee Omprovement Group Facebook Page.
However, that is a future possibility.
Today's jobs are few and far between.
