Palliser Regional Library - Willow Bunch Branch

The Willow Bunch Branch of the Palliser Regional Library was established in 1973. The library was located in the Hills of Home Club, Senior Centre for many years. On April 20, 2009 the library moved to the former RM 42 office and shortly after that the library returned to its regular business hours at the new location. The Official Grand Opening for the new facility took place on June 12, 2009.

  • Drop in Programs - Book Club Selection -ALONE IN THE CLASSROOM by Elizabeth Hay - In a small prairie school in 1929, Connie Flood helps a backwardstudent, Michael Graves, learn how to read.  Observing them and darkening their lives is the principal, Parley Burns, whose strange behavior culminates in an attack so disturbing its repercussions continue to the present day.  Connie's niece, Anne tells the story.  Impelled by curiosity about her dynamic, adventurous aunt and her more conventional mother, she visits Connie's past and her mother's broken childhood.  In the process, she unravels the enigma of Parley Burns and the mysterious (and unrelated) deaths of two young girls. AS the novel moves deeper inthe the lives, the triangle of principal, teacher, student opens out into other emotional triangles - aunt, niece, lover; mother, duaghter, granddaughter 0 until a sudden, capsizing love thrusts Anne herself into a newly independent life.  This spellbinding tale - set in Saskatchewan and the Ottawa Valley - crosses generations and cuts to the bone. It probes the roots of obsessive love and hate, how the hurts and desires of childhood persist and are passed on as if in the blood.
