Ready for the move: Ponoka FCSS awarded the Ponoka Jubilee Library with a special grant last week of $61,000 for the purchase of the new kids and teens sections set to be created once the new Learning Centre is built. The library has begun fundraising to help pay for the move and to create new spaces.
