Prue Morton Resource Library

Prue Morton embodied the belief that social change can be brought about by committed individuals working together. She became involved in the Lakehead Social Planning Council in the 1980’s and remained an active LSPC supporter for the rest of her life. She served a term as President, chaired major committees, and helped with day to day operations and fundraising events. Her concern for community building extended to countless other organizations such as the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra, Ontario March of Dimes, Canadian Red Cross and the Patients Rights Association.

In 2005, the LSPC was invited as one of 5 provincial community partners to join the newly formed NonProfit Library Network – supported by the John Hodgson Library of Imagine Canada (the former Canadian Centre for Philanthropy). We were able through this initiative to better organize and increase our print resources to include a community collection of over 50 new titles, secured a dedicated computer to support access to virtual library resources and with financial support from the Thunder Bay Community Foundation we were able to furnish, catalogue, index and renew the look of our library.

Prue’s loyalty, dedication and commitment to the organization was exemplary and it is in her memory that we decided to name our library – the Prue Morton Resource Library.
