In Praise of Librarians

What The Librarian Did by Karina Bliss

What The Librarian Did by Karina Bliss

April is School Library month, and tucked inside that is National Library Week from April 13-19. So in honor of librarians everywhere (and my mom :-)) I gathered up some recent and slightly older Harlequin titles featuring librarian heroines for us to enjoy. Please note there’s a selection of print and ebook to suit everyone’s reading tastes.

So if you like books, go thank a Librarian today….thanks Mom!

Easter Bunny bringing a New Community to Harlequin

I wanted to give you all a heads-up that next week we will be launching a new Community platform on Harlequin.com. We’ve been testing it for over a month and don’t expect any problems, but of course you never know!

All of the navigation on the main Harlequin site will be updated to point to the new boards, however if you have been using bookmarks to access your favourite discussions and then try to use them after we’ve migrated, you will get an error message. The best thing to do is to use the site navigation to find your way to our new location or type in http://community.harlequin.com. That link will remain the same.

We hope that you will join us and continue to tell us your stories, share your tips and remain a part of our online presence even as we shift into this different space.Things will look a lot different on the new platform, but it’s still a place to talk about reading and writing with your fellow Harlequin fans.

The hosts and I will be on-hand to address member questions and concerns, so please keep us in the loop if any unexpected issues arise.

A Big Day for Harlequin (the baby Peregrine Falcon)

It was a big day for the little bird at 225 Don Mills Road, as staff, invited guests and honored dignitaries arrived for a special ceremony yesterday in her honor. Wildlife biologists from the Ministry of Natural Resources secreted the feisty fledgling from her perch on the drafty ledge across from Harlequin’s headquarters in Don Mills under the watchful eye of Mama Quest. It took some subterfuge and a few anxious moments but the baby was escorted successfully across the street and then presented in person to employees in Toronto and in New York via internet and webcam. It was confirmed by a weighing in that she was indeed a female and officially christened Harlequin, and then banded with dual citizenship in honor of her parent’s cross-border romance.

Little Harley (as she’s known affectionately) has been stopping traffic and hearts since before she was hatched some 21days ago. This amazing story began when CEO Donna Hayes, herself an avid birder, noted the courting behavior of two Peregrine Falcons eventually identified as Quest from Rochester New York, and Kendal a local lad from Toronto. The romance blossomed and soon the pair was busy preparing for the imminent arrival of their much anticipated offspring. Initially somewhat overwhelmed by motherhood, Quest quite literally dashed hopes for a successful hatch by inadvertently pushing two previous eggs off the nest site leaving just the one viable egg. But, since the hatch (and WHAT a day that was) Harley has provided endless conversation in our offices about her size, condition, status and was she just a LITTLE too close to
the edge of the ledge when she fell out of the box today and OMIGOD did you see that?

Harlequin looks none too impressed as she is weighed.

And of course proud Papa Kendal, who has been stockpiling special cache spots with mountains of fresh food for Mama and Baby, deserves a special mention for eventually figuring out that he too must help out with the domestic duties and has been ably assisting Quest by swapping time out on the nest – this is after all a 21st Century Romance!

Today’s event was attended by special guests, the Honourable Linda Jeffrey, Minister of Natural Resources who presided over the banding ceremony, representatives from the Canadian Peregrine Foundation and members of the media in addition to a Peregrine Falcon back up team and ararely seen and endangered Barn Owl. Each of us in fact had the opportunity to band our selves with special Harlequin hearts Peregrines bracelets in honor of the occasion.

And now we wait for…..Harlequin’s first flight!
