News and Events from Salt Spring Island Public Library


  1. This month's program room exhibition contains beautiful acrylic paintings and photo collages by Phyllis Webb. These are the surprising late-life creations of this well-known Canadian poet and Salt Spring Islander. Colourful, sometimes puzzling, and mainly abstract, these works feel at home in the Library’s generous gallery space. Webb’s books of poetry and essay collections are also on display.
  2. See the exhibition in the Program Room from the 1st to the 29th of February, when the room is not otherwise in use.
  3. Find out more about the breadth of Phyllis' work at the Canadian Encyclopedia.
