Finding Information: WPL Databases Versus Google?

Sweating over a term paper? You have to try our online databases!

At Windsor Public Library many of the documents found in our databases cannot be found by searching Continue Reading...

Today, Canada Customs building stands where Continue Reading...

Rave Review!

This month’s Rave Reviews were a lot of fun. I was joined by librarian Adam Peltier and we shared some really exciting books. I always love his recommendations and we keep having to check in with each other as we have, on occasion, accidentally selected some of the same books. It was a great session and a lovely group for our last session at the Central library. The current plan is to move the program to Riverside in March and the schedule will be announced shortly. Kate’s Continue Reading...
