Hi there, I'm a retired reference librarian who worked at McGill University and the National Library of Canada. My husband, a retired psychiatrist, and I lead an active outdoor lifestyle of bike riding, hiking and cross-country skiing, and enjoy cultural events, almost as much as being with our toddler granddaughter.
