The back of the turtle

Monday, 22 December, 2014

@TitleIn The Back of the Turtle, Gabriel returns to Smoke River, the reserve where his mother grew up and to which she returned with Gabriel’s sister. The reserve is deserted after an environmental disaster killed the population, including Gabriel’s family, and the wildlife. Gabriel, a brilliant scientist working for Domidion, created GreenSweep, and indirectly led to the crisis. Now he has come to see the damage and to kill himself in the sea.

Library News

In Memory of Phyllis Barich

Friday, December 12, 2014

​​​​​​​​​​​​We are sorry to announce that Phyllis Barich, our Coordinator at the Exchange District Campus, has recently passed away. Phyllis came to Red River in 2002 and assumed responsibility for operations at EDC in 2005. She was also the contact person for library services to our regional campuses, visiting them on a regular basis. Phyllis was a valued colleague and a staunch friend. She tirelessly promoted the value of libraries and the strength of her library team, building relationships designed to meet the needs of the College community. Her warmth and outgoing nature earned her a place in many hearts. She will be sorely missed. RRC Staff and students are invited to add their thoughts and memories to this page (Login required).
