Brandy Lake’s First Little Library at 1013 Phyllimar Lane, Brandy Lake
Several years ago I saw this initiative and thought it was great. Since then it has grown to thousands around the world although primarily in USA and Canada.
This was built with left over building material.
Little Free Library is a non-profit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. This library has been registered with www.freelittlelibrary.org the Charter no. is 56310 and should be listed on their website within several days.
Through Little Free Libraries, millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds.
So please come by, take a book out to read or bring one for others to read , appropriate for all age groups.
This library will remain throughout the year. However, there will be limited accessibility in the winter due to the high snow. We do not come up in the winter and will not be clearing the path for the Library.

For the past few decades a team of Brandy Lake volunteers take water samples then analyse it and send the results to Beacon Environmental for processing and recording. The results are then posted by the MLA. A second test, usually done by Peter Sale will continue as well..mostly for phosphorous. This is a free analysis where Beacon has a fee.

EXPLANATION OF THE PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF
THE PROPOSED OFFICIAL PLAN AMENDMENT:
The purpose of the proposed Official Plan Amendment would be to provide an updated, simplified
and scientifically defensible policy set for the continued protection of Muskoka’s recreational water
In this regard, the effect of the Amendment would be to revise and update the existing
planning policies to guide development around lakes and rivers in a holistic manner by responding
to the findings of the Revised Water Quality Model and Lake System Health Program Final Report
by Hutchinson Environmental Sciences Limited (HESL) dated April, 2016.
This report provides
evidence based and outcome driven recommendations on how to protect water quality in the
watersheds of Muskoka in consideration of multiple environmental stressors and using the data
from the District’s water quality monitoring program.
