Packing is finished. Everything has been stored off site. Shelves have all been dismantled and are waiting to be reassembled.

A temporary office has been set up and we continue to receive new material. We are busy cataloguing and processing the newest books so they are ready for you to check out as soon as we re-open the doors. I bet you can hardly wait! We are also looking after other ongoing business such as keeping this blog updated.

As of today demolition is under way. The Head Librarian's office is bare and will be relocated. The circulation desk and staff workstations have been torn out. These will also be relocated and there will be a fresh new look - about time after 15 years of service. We will keep you up to speed with what is happening here on the blog. Enjoy the pictures below.

About the Authors

Hi - my name is Carolyn Graham and I am the Head Librarian and I love my job! One of the best parts of my job is that I am the first one to see all the beautiful new books as they arrive. I have always loved to read and my favorite way to relax is with a good book. I strongly believe that having good reading skills is an integral part of all learning. Being able to share good books and authors that I have enjoyed is great fun. Feel free to come and ask for suggestions.

Hi - I’m Aubrey Walker, Assistant Librarian at the Jake Epp Library. I’m a librarian and coffee guzzler by day, a reader and tea sipper by night. Reading and writing (and talking endlessly about both) are passions of mine, so I’m rather lucky to have a job where those things are relevant and important. I’m also the voice behind our Facebook page, and I love connecting with people about books both online and off. is Steinbach's only source for community news and information such as weather and classifieds.
