Library doors open on island

Protection Islanders looking for a good read now have their own library to enjoy.

The library, a project of the Protection Island Lions Club, opened its doors Sept. 23 in the basement of the community centre, formerly the lighthouse keeper’s cottage.

Island residents donated financially as well as with more than 1,500 volunteer hours to help with renovations.

The library has 2,000 books electronically catalogued, ready for loan, with more on the way.
