Indigenous Crafts and Raven-Making Workshops in the Chilliwack Library

We have a series of drop-in craft workshops and raven-making events scheduled for the Chilliwack library:
  • Drop-in crafts with Josephine, Tuesday September 25, 12:30-2:30 pm
  • Raven-making workshop Wednesday, September 26, 8:30-9:30 am
  • Raven-making workshop Wednesday, October 17, 2 - 3 pm
  • Drop-in crafts with Josephine, Tuesday, October 23, 12:30-2:30
  • Drop-in crafts with Josephine, Tuesday, November 27, 12:30-2:30

The drop-in crafts are run by Josephine Charlie from the Indigenous Student Centre. Available crafts include dream catchers, medicine bags, mini button blankets and beaded dragon flies.

We’re making 1,000 paper ravens to hang in the CEP atrium outside the library, as a wish for reconciliation. The Raven-making workshops are directly tied to the exhibit in the display cabinet outside the Chilliwack library, which has themes of residential schools, reconciliation and hope.

Check Out Our New Web Site

The library's web site has a fresh new look, just in time for the fall semester.

Our primary goal for the web site was to make the pages and resources you need and want easy to find. Some of the features of our new site include:
  • a simple navigation bar to help you with your most common library tasks
  • alternate home pages for faculty and graduate students, featuring resources and services you need
  • easily accessible help from every page (just look for the grey question mark button)
  • easy access to library hours, booking a group study room, and more from the home page
We hope you'll find our new web site easy to use, and we'd love to get your feedback on this brief 5-minute survey

Wifi Printing Now Available

Did you know that you can now print documents directly from your own phone, tablet or laptop? You no longer need to log in to a computer in the library or a computer lab.

It's so easy to do; just follow these easy instructions:
  1. Go to https://wifiprint.ufv.ca/ and log in with your UFV credentials (myUFV login for students, employee credentials for faculty and staff).
  2. Upload your document.
  3. Click on the desired printer queue; for print options, check the Advanced box first.
  4. Go to the print release station, swipe your card and pay as you normally would.
