I love going to Libraries and it's a real bonus when the Library can come to you.

I've been up in the Great White North (It's a Beauty Way to Go) for over a week now. The business trip started in Calgary and continued to Fort McMurray and onwards to the Albian Oil Sands area. Yes, I'm in the middle of nowhere, but the work camp I'm staying at is clean and comfortable. The food is also plentiful and good, which accounts for a group of us who walk about 5 km outside after dinner. Yet, cabin fever does set in and after these 12 hour days, all I want is a little diversion and a good nights sleep.

One activity a Camp (besides karaoke at the bar and the gym) was a Saturday visit by the good folks at the Fort McMurray Public Library. They brought a small library of books and DVDs and offered a fun little scrabble-based game for prizes. If I was staying here longer, a library card sign was available. I enjoyed my time with the Librarians and really appreciated the effort of the Fort McMurray Public Library to spread a little literary good cheer up in this remote neck of the woods.

And my Karaoke number? "Gayle I hear you calling, but I can't come home right now. Me and the boys are playin'...."
