The temporary Binbrook location will be closing after Saturday, Jan. 13 in order to move back to the renovated location. Holds for pickup at Binbrook, that have not yet been filled, have been suspended until the end of the month when the renovated branch will open.

A Watch in the Night
The Story of Pomquet Island's Last Lightkeeping Family
A Watch in the Night chronicles the struggles of one Nova Scotia family to survive on a tiny windswept island without running water, electricity, or reliable communication with the mainland. For thirty-six years, George and Ruth Millar tended the Pomquet Island light, raised generations of livestock, brought up their six children, and lived through violent storms and other weather disasters. A Watch in the Night is not a dry account of lightkeeping life, but rather a tale in which faith, ingenuity, and tenderness triumph over adversity.
