At the Library for Janurary 24th, 2017

Updated 2017/01/23




‘Imagine this Valley’ is Stephen Legault’s collection of essays celebrating the landscape, culture, community and natural history of Alberta’s Bow Valley.


Part of her ‘Just Enough’ series, Jillian Roberts’ ‘What Happens When a Loved One Dies’ helps both adults and children talk about this difficult subject with each other.


Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11:00 am, 1:15 pm, & 6:30 pm, and Toddler Story Time is 10:00 and 11:00 am. Both will be all about music!


New this year is Baby Laptime on Fridays at 1 pm. This program is for babies who are not yet walking so a specific age is not really set—best approximation is under 1 year of age.  Since we do not have daycare for older siblings we ask that parents who have babies and children who are walking come to the toddler storytime instead of the baby laptime.

Come to the Annual Audio Visual and Magazine Sale of the Friends of the Library.  It will be located in the Manual Training School (adjacent to the Library) on Friday, Feb. 10th 5 pm to 7 pm for Friends’ members only and on Saturday, Feb.11th from 9 am to 4 pm for the general public. Donations are being accepted of magazines published since 2014 as well as dvds, cds, videos, audiobook and records. Cookbooks, craft books and children’s big books are also available. Please bring your donations to the circulation desk in the Library.  For further info call Louise at 778-517-1119.   We look forward to seeing you there!


FREE one-on-one tech training session for those of you who want to enhance your current computing skills. We cover many topics including Basic Tablet usage, Basic Computer usage, Windows 10 training, Window 8 + 8.1 training, Window 7 training, Microsoft Suit training, Library E book training, and much more. To register, please contact the Library at (250) 426-4063, or sign up at the front desk.


New at the Library is a 2000-piece jigsaw puzzle of Bavaria’s Neuschwanstein Castle. It is located in our reading lounge, so any and all puzzle enthusiasts are encouraged to come work on it.


On display this month is the breathtaking images of Ashlee Dawn Photography.
