A special thanks to City of Castlegar mayor Lawrence Chernoff and councillors Sue Heaton-Sherstobitoff and Dan Rye, the Castlegar Rebels, Dianne Galloway from the Friends of the Library, RCMP Sgt. Laurel Mathew, Lynnene Lewis and Lesley Hastain from Kootenay Family Place, Michelle Donaldson from Mallards Source for Sports, Rebecca Voros from Robson Community School PAC, CBAL Staff, and Castlegar News staff for helping out during our Reach a Reader campaign.
