GELA PubNightWith summer in full swing, we are happy to be hosting another Summer Social pub night at Underground Tap & Grill on Thursday August 11th from 5pm-8pm. This is a casual come-and-go affair, join us when you can. Underground is located on 10004 Jasper Ave. right next to the Central LRT station. Feel free to join the Facebook Event for any updates. Come see your library friends over a pint!

It involves a 3-year commitment as Vice-President becomes the President, and then the Past-President. If you are interested in this leadership opportunity please email us at
