My mother, Anne Woznow, considered it essential to encourage young children to love reading as early as possible.
Which is why I am honoured to sit on the Powell River Library Board of Trustees and to have been a passionate supporter of the new library facility at Crossroads Village.
We’re thrilled! The Powell River Public Library has received a $20,000 charitable gift in support of the new library facility at Crossroads Village. The funds were donated by Powell River residents Ron and Susan Woznow and Ron’s sisters, Beverly Woznow of Fredericton, New Brunswick and Susan Burnett of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Mr. Woznow’s connection to the Sunshine Coast began more than twenty years ago when he purchased property on Hardy Island. On a visit to Powell River in 2013, Ron and Susan took a house tour with their realtor and walked into what would become their first home in Grief Point. It was the start, Woznow says, of their “total commitment to Powell River.”
