ORL Endowment Established at the Shuswap Community Foundation

The ORL is pleased to announce it has contributed seed funding in the amount of $5,000 to establish a permanent endowment with the Shuswap Community Foundation (SCF). When the endowment reaches $10,000 income earned will be used to support library services and programs in the Shuswap region. The Foundation and the ORL look forward to working with donors who would like to contribute to the fund.

Currently there are five ORL locations in the Shuswap: the Salmon Arm Branch in Piccadilly Mall, the South Shuswap Branch in Blind Bay, the North Shuswap Branch in Scotch Creek, the Silver Creek Branch and the Sicamous Branch.

Fraud Alert Update: Beware Callers Claiming You Owe Fines

UPDATE: April 5, 2016 - Please note that one of the people called in this scam is not a library member, and the ORL’s IT department can confirm there has been no compromise to personal information or the library’s data systems.

It has come to the attention of the ORL that some library members are being phoned by a scammer. In both cases, a caller identified themselves as "a collection agency working for the library" to collect overdue fees. PLEASE BE AWARE: The ORL only uses a collection agency in the event that a member has over $50 in fines due over 90 days, and ALWAYS follows up with a written account outlining the fees and methods of payment. Members are never asked to pay fines over the phone.
