The Port Alberni branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library is proud to announce a new pilot project: a Punjabi language collection.

As a response to suggestions from the community, the Port Alberni branch has borrowed Punjabi materials from other branches in the VIRL system.

These materials include children’s picture books, adult fiction and non-fiction, and DVDs, both documentary and feature film.

Anyone with a library card can borrow the materials, which will be in the branch until the end of October 2011.

The Port Alberni VIRL branch welcomes comments about the collection.

For more information, or if you have any questions, please call librarian Maggie Hodge Kwan, at 250-723-9511.
