Library filtering to stay

LONDON, ONTARIO – November 22, 2007 – London Public Library’s Board voted 5-4 last evening to continue filtering against sexually-explicit content on the majority of its public access Internet workstations.  

Uh oh, is it that time already?

The holiday season is upon us again, and this year I'm really looking forward to it. My son is just old enough now that he wants to be involved in the preparations, and I don't want to discourage his enthusiastic help! We have started working on our Christmas crafts nice and early (for a change) and I have discovered some wonderful books and websites.


Our staff are here to quickly help you by phone during operating hours.

Autumn Cooking and Food Shopping

Autumn is when I get into some serious cooking again. It's the season for the comfort food most people enjoy: soups, stews, braised dishes, roasts and hearty, earthy vegetables. I can spend hours in the kitchen on a chilly day preparing the harvest bounty available at this time of year while I listen to CDs or CBC radio. It's the season for carrots, rutabagas, cabbages of all kinds, leeks, kale, beets and potatoes -- to name a few good things.
