Barrhead Community Website

26 April 2017

Launching May 1st, 2017 www.BarrheadCommunity.ca will be a website dedicated to the preservation, sharing & discussion of Barrhead's past, present & future. 

We will be doing weekly updates, adding collected historical photos/documents where members of the community can venture through time and see for themselves that Barrhead has been a strong & growing community for 100 years!

This project is inspired by Canada's 150th birthday and will strive to be a beacon of the community.

If you have pictures or something to share, details on how to submit or help contribute will be coming shortly. Keep watch in May for details.

2017 Reading Challenge!

27 December 2016

The 2017 POPSUGAR reading challenge is here — with a new twist! For 2017's challenge, there are 40 book prompts to help diversify and expand your reading into the new year. PLUS an "advanced" section with 12 books for hardcore readers who complete the challenge before the year is over. That's a book a week for the overachievers out there! Not that you have to read all 52 books — the idea is just to have fun with it. From "a book recommended by a librarian" to "a book with a cat on the cover," this reading challenge is made up of a variety of ideas to mix up your reading choices, not specific book titles. Maybe you'll even discover a new favorite book by trying something unexpected.
