Village Library

The Vankoughnet/Village Square Library has a very good collection of

both fiction and non-fiction books. There are also 163 videos and 125 DVDs for your viewing enjoyment. Books may be borrowed for three weeks while videos and DVDs are to be signed out for one week.

The adult, children, and youth sections have recently been updated and organized. However, this is an ongoing process for the volunteers.

The non-fiction books are shelved thematically and include cooking, crafts, Canadian and Muskoka history, as well as autobiography/biography and travel sections.

Among our fiction authors are Clive Cussler, John Grisham, Sophie Kinsella, James Patterson, Belva Plain, Nora Roberts, Nicholas Sparks, Danielle Steel and many more. Canadian authors include Margaret Atwood, David Bergen, Joseph Boyden, Michael Crummey, and Alice Munro.

The Library is staffed by a librarian on Saturday morning between 10:00 and 12:00. You are encouraged to do a 'self-help' check-out on other occasions when The Village Square is open. Instructions for this procedure are taped to the desk. Library cards may be purchased for $2.00 and are good for life. Fines for late returns are $0.25/day but only for the days when the Library

is open.

The Library Committee welcomes the donation of popular books that are in

good condition.
