Grace Campbell served as public and regional librarian in Prince Albert from 1955 to 1973. Born in Scotland, Grace obtained her Library Science degree from McGill University and worked as a librarian in Prince Edward Island for many years. Encouraged by her friend Marion Gilroy, Grace migrated to Prince Albert in 1950.
During her tenure, Grace advanced the library’s presence in the community and oversaw the expansion of the regional library and the design of the John M. Cuelenaere Public Library. She retired to Victoria, BC in 1973, a few weeks before the grand opening of the Cuelenaere Library. The Library’s art gallery was named in her honour.

Treasures From My Basement by Nicole Charlebois-Rinas
I love to paint, especially outside in the bush. Treasures From My Basement is a collection of paintings that have been curated from the stacks of paintings in my basement over the last fifteen years. Most of the images are of landscapes. A few are of abstract subjects with lots of texture.
Nicole Charlebois-Rinas is an educator and visual artist in Prince Albert. She is a mixed media artist utilizing fiber, wax, traditional drawing media and paint. Her art is hopeful, from a feminine perspective as a woman, mother, teacher and wife of a farmer. She has participated in several group shows in Saskatchewan. Through community involvement and as an educator she has supported youth in their artistic discovery and journey. She received her Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Saskatchewan.
