For our last book club before our summer break, we will be reading I Shall Not Hate by Izzeldin Abuelaish.

This book tells the story of a ‘Gaza doctor’s journey on the road to peace and human dignity’.

We will be meeting in the Library Cafe at 7:30pm.

If you would like to join the discussion, please contact Pat at 647-352-5304.

A defibrillator is located behind the sign-in desk between the gym and the Party Room.  The device will talk you through the procedure but should a problem arise, please call 911, then the PPL desk at (416) 421-2971 or Security at (416) 906-7970 or (647) 462-0404.

Please take a look the next time you are in the area, so you know exactly where to find it.

We are looking for more books for the library.  Novels, mysteries, biographies and children’s books in good condition are all welcome. Paperbacks are also great but please NO magazines.

The Library is open 9am to 9pm every day – you will need to use your fob for entry.

The 3Rs Ambassador Program Comes To Leaside Towers!

The City of Toronto has launched the 3Rs Ambassador Program to increase the Reduce – ReUse – Recycle (3Rs) rates in apartment buildings and condos across the city. While many of our residents do use the recycling facilities in our buildings – we can always do better!

That is why the newly formed 3Rs Committee is looking for people to join the 3Rs effort by becoming:

  • A 3Rs Ambassador (3 training hours, followed by ongoing efforts)
  • A building or floor rep (on-call; 1 to 2 hours/week)

Why Join the Effort?

  • Help the environment
  • Reduce our buildings’ garbage costs
  • Get to know our neighbours
  • Help the City reach the waste diversion target of 70%
  • Meet people who are passionate about waste management
  • Earn volunteer hours – especially for our young people

If we can get enough 3Rs Ambassador volunteers, we can arrange a training session here. Meanwhile, the next official training session will take place on May 3 from 1 to 4 p.m.

For more information, or if you’d like to help, please contact GreenLeaside@gmail.com.
