Open House in Honour of Linda Chmilar

Apr. 28, 2022

After thirty years of leading the way in library services, Linda Chmilar retired as Manager of Grimshaw Municipal Library in February 2022. Linda was a strong advocate for the library in our community over this time, and knew the importance of being ready to share information whether she was at a council meeting, shopping for groceries, or on the sidelines of her kids’ sports events. She introduced many creative programs, and ran numerous successful fundraisers, with the backing of scores of volunteers, thousands of lists, and millions of file folders! Fashion shows, parades, craft and county fairs, casinos, bra fittings, readers theatre, cash calendars, teas, movies, quilting, Harry Potter camps, Lego, and the Festival of Mini Trees – anything could (and did) happen at the library. Her efforts were behind the expansion of the children’s space in the former location, and most recently, Linda took on the numerous challenges of bringing us to our new home. Our board and staff are beyond grateful for all she has done for Grimshaw Municipal Library. Thank you, Linda!  If you would like to express your gratitude and congratulations in person, please attend the Open House in her honour on Friday, April 29 from 1-3 pm at the library.
