No, that’s not a typo.
Lincoln Pelham Public Library (LPPL) now has fishing kits and children’s life jackets available to borrow with your library card. This new collection is in partnership with the St. Catharines Game & Fish Association. Fishing kits include a rod, tackle box, bait bucket, and small net. Life jackets are available in a variety of sizes, from infant to youth. Both items loan for two weeks on an adult library card. You can check availability and place a hold in the catalogue.
The kits are ready just in time for Family Fishing Week in Ontario. Between July 2 – 10, a fishing licence is not required to fish. For beginners, we recommend St. Johns Conservation Area in Fonthill or Charles Daley Park in Jordan. You can also join LPPL’s resident angler at Charles Daley Park on Thursday, August 18 between 10 am – 12 pm to try one of the new fishing kits (please note a licence is required for anyone over 18 at this event).
Keep exploring the great outdoors by borrowing a day-use pass. LPPL loans passes that provide entry into Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority sites, including Ball’s Falls, Binbrook, Chippawa Creek, and Long Beach. You can also borrow an Ontario Parks pass to explore more than 100 provincial parks.
