I’ve devoted a great deal of my career to taxation and estate planning as there is  a large gap in estate planning and many individuals haven’t planned in advance.When I’m not hard at work navigating the world of tax and audit, I’m with my family at our home in Fenelon Falls, which includes my wife, our baby girl and our two huskies Luna and Friday."

CEO, Scugog Memorial Public Library

What is a Makerspace and why are they all the rage in Libraries?


Public libraries everywhere have been adding Makerspaces to their range of services and the Scugog Library is no exception. What types of equipment and activities are included in these facilities? Who uses them and what do they use them for? How do they contribute to the enrichment of local residents and businesses? The CEO of the Scugog Memorial Public Library will answer these questions and give a brief overview of what members of the community can expect from this exciting new service launching in late Fall 2023.

Amy Caughlin has worked as a professional librarian for more than 30 years and has spent half of that time as the CEO of the Scugog Memorial Public Library. Prior to coming to Scugog she worked at some of the largest library systems in Ontario including Toronto, Pickering, London and Markham. Amy is a devoted technophile who designs websites and troubleshoots tech issues for fun in her free time.
