In 2015 Beth Donovan Hospice (BDH) received a bequest from a long-time friend and supporter of BDH who shared our vision for rural residential hospice services. Audrey McClenaghan always felt strong ties to BDH and her generosity made our new ‘Forever Home’ at 1107 French Settlement possible. Without her generosity we would not have been able to reach this landmark achievement. During our Open House on Friday, May 5, the library was dedicated to the late Audrey McClenaghan in honour of her generous bequest. Friends of Audrey’s have shared that they know she would have been thrilled to share her name with the BDH library because of her love of reading and continuous learning. In memory of Audrey, the lending library will continue to provide resources that support individuals during challenging times. Your compassion and dedication to Beth Donovan Hospice over the years will not be forgotten Audrey.
The Beth Donovan Hospice lending library offers a number of resources for free concerning living, meeting the end of life, grief and bereavement, and dying. Resources also include a number of children’s books, music and audiobooks. Anyone interested in our library resources are encouraged to call or stop by the hospice Monday to Friday 9:00-4:30. For more information about the lending library, please contact Beth Donovan Hospice at 613-258-9611 x 0 or [email protected].
