Part of This Complete BreakfastPosted: April 2, 2011
Most Corner Brookers thought yesterday’s weather forecast was a cruel April Fool’s joke: 10 cm of snow after a gorgeous spring day? Say it aint so.
Sadly, it is so. But here at Chez Moi the forecast calls for french-press coffee…
…and a morning’s worth of my favorite magazines courtesy of my favorite Corner Brook establishment, the Corner Brook Public Library:
The library’s selection of books, movies, and magazines is surprising, and includes a large “Newfoundland” section and a staggering variety of cookbooks:
The library also provides the best customer service in town. If the library doesn’t have the book you’re looking for, a librarian will order it from another library (which usually only takes a week to get in). And, if the book isn’t available elsewhere, a librarian will go to great lengths to order a brand new copy just for you.
If, like me, you’re keen to read the latest magazines as soon as possible, a librarian will even call you when your magazine comes in, and reserve it for you at the front desk.
Which means, on a snowy Saturday like today, you can learn how to prep for a 10K, plan a Greek-style Easter Dinner, discover Chile’s top wine picks, and learn about Jerusalem’s contemporary architecture. It’s all part of a complete, Saturday morning breakfast.
