Community Project: Book of Obituaries
Family and Friends of Locals
This record of past lives of those who lived in this area is put together by you and other community members. We encourage your participation. Feel free to add obituaries and place them in alphabetical order, using the A to Z dividers. Use the plastic sheets if necessary. This is a small way that we can commemorate the memory of those who have lived in this area in the past. We hope that it might help genealogists in the future.
You can have a personalized book-plate made in someone's memory.
Also, we will make a book-plate with the donor's name in a second book.
You can donate certain books or we can choose books that you feel are suitable.
A volunteer or student will arrange for you to receive a tax receipt for your donation.
Thank you for supporting the Cambridge-Narrows Regional Library.
Our collection of Cambridge-Narrows School yearbooks is lacking the years:
1970,1982, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009.
If you have copies you wish to donate to the Library, it would be appreciated.
They will be kept in the 'Local History' section of your Library.

Seed Library 2022
July 2022: We will be taking the display down soon. The remaining seeds will be kept in the volunteers' work room out back. If you want more seeds, please ask the students or a volunteer to get them from the back room and you can sort through the container yourself.
Our Library is working with Horizon NB/Wellness NB and
students & staff of Cambridge-Narrows Community School on this new project.
Free vegetable and herb seeds will be available to members of our Library
What is a seed library?
Seeds will be given to the public, free of charge, with an aim to create greener spaces, encourage people to grow their own healthy vegetables and herbs, promote food security, and facilitate community learning.
How to borrow seeds
It’s easy! Sign up and become a member of the library (membership is free). Members can choose their seeds and sign them out (limit one variety to a maximum of 10 packages for each membership number) each time you visit the library. Please print your name, library membership number and leave any comments you'd like to share - see the green sheet on the small table next to the Seed Library baskets. The Volunteers can help you.
At harvest time, please take extra steps to save seeds for others. The more seeds we save, the more members of our community can experience the joy of growing their own food from local seeds. We want heirloom, open-pollinated, non-genetically modified seeds available to the community to help preserve these for our future. Saving seeds that grow well in this area will ensure that we will have a supply in the event of crop failure in some other areas.
If you have seeds to share with us at harvest time, please bring them back in an envelope, or clear plastic bag marked with as much information as you can provide.
We will have a Gardening Workshop here at the Library on Saturday, May 7, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon with Garden Coordinator, Alison Jutra. Free admission - everyone welcome.
The grant from Horizon NB/Wellness NB allows us to purchase gardening books for the children and adult sections of your library. This is a work-in-progress for all of us, so we’d appreciate input from the community. We’re all in this together.
