When Coquitlam Public Library’s Book Bus was destroyed in a fire in May 2014, residents of the Cottonwood and Northeast neighborhoods of Coquitlam were devastated by the loss and staged a campaign for the library to get a replacement vehicle.  Now, after a fundraising drive supported by the local community and businesses, Library Link—the library’s new mobile branch—is bringing a revamped service to these neighborhoods, with plans for expansion in 2016. Library Link is continuing the much-needed service of bringing books, DVDs and other materials to people with transportation difficulties and other barriers to visiting the library.
With donations from Wesbild, Industrial Alliance, Rotary Club of Coquitlam, Friends of Coquitlam Public Library Society, as well as many individual community members, the library was able to purchase a replacement vehicle and named it Library Link. The new mobile branch has been completely refurbished with room inside for almost 2000 books and other items, and is equipped with a checkout computer, a sound system, wheelchair lift, WIFI and a large awning for outdoor story times and other activities. The collection includes children’s books, bestsellers, DVDs, ESL materials and more—all brand new. As well, the staff on board is able to issue library cards, help residents download library eBooks to their personal devices, recommend titles for them and their children, and help newcomers with information about the library and other community services.

The Amanda Todd Legacy Award, supported by the Tri-City Rotary Clubs, will provide $1,000 each to three Tri-City students enrolled in the Child and Youth Care program at Douglas College.

Coquitlam, BC - On Friday, June 12th, the Rotary Club of Coquitlam held its annual Installment Dinner. The festivities served as a great opportunity to thank the 2014-15 President Jim Robinson and his board of directors for all of their contributions. It also served as the transition to the 2015-16 team, which will be led by incoming President Paul Droulis. We look forward to a successful 2015-16 year.
Congratulations to Barb Hobson, Mark Fitzsimmons and David Munro on receiving their Paul Harris Fellow awards! It is truly an honour to receive the Paul Harris Fellow recognition ( ). Thank you to Barb, Mark and David for their contributions to Rotary, the Rotary Club of Coquitlam and their community.
