NEW! Seed Library

Our seed library is a collection of different seeds, for flowers, herbs, vegetables and more, that both amateur and experienced gardeners alike can “borrow” to take home, grow and enjoy. At the end of the growing season, participants are encouraged to save some seeds from their plants and donate them to the library for others to grow. All for free.

You can borrow seeds from the Dunnville and Jarvis Library during spring, summer and fall. Seed donations are accepted at all branches throughout the year. We hope to expand this program at it grows!

Everyone in this room will someday be dead by Emily Austin

“Gilda, a twenty-something lesbian, cannot stop ruminating about death. Desperate for relief from her panicky mind and alienated from her repressive family, she responds to a flyer for free therapy at a local Catholic church, and finds herself being greeted by Father Jeff, who assumes she’s there for a job interview. Too embarrassed to correct him, Gilda is abruptly hired to replace the recently deceased receptionist Grace.

In between trying to memorize the lines to Catholic mass, hiding the fact that she has a new girlfriend, and erecting a dirty dish tower in her crumbling apartment, Gilda strikes up an email correspondence with Grace’s old friend. She can’t bear to ignore the kindly old woman, who has been trying to reach her friend through the church inbox, but she also can’t bring herself to break the bad news. Desperate, she begins impersonating Grace via email. But when the police discover suspicious circumstances surrounding Grace’s death, Gilda may have to finally reveal the truth of her mortifying existence.”
