How are we talking about November already? It has certainly been a busy fall at the library, and we have enjoyed seeing lots of smiling faces visiting our space and participating in all of our fun programs.
October was filled with everything spooky, and ended with the return of our Halloween at the Library event. We would like to thank all of our patrons who came to celebrate with us during this event. We had a lot of fun!
In November, our weekly programs — Tuesday morning Lego club, Friday Lego league, story time on Wednesdays — along with craft kits for both adults and children, and our D&D clubs (every second Saturday), will continue throughout the month.
We are excited to welcome Wes Olson to the library on Thursday, Nov. 10, at 6:30 p.m. Wes has spent four decades working in the field of wildlife and landscape conservation. On top of his incredible career, Wes is also an author and an artist! Come spend an evening at the library and learn about his work with buffalo.
We are also welcoming a new-to-Pincher artist, Anne Sczyrba, to teach a beginner watercolour class at the library. Anne has taught many art classes in the past and is excited to offer her class to our patrons on Tuesday, Nov. 15, from 6 to 8 p.m., and on Thursday, Nov. 17, from 10 a.m. till noon. Space is limited for this program, so be sure to call the library to register.
The art continues with our Create a Bookmark contest. Throughout November, we invite our adult patrons to come in and pick up a contest kit. The kit will come with a blank bookmark and instructions. We will use the winning bookmarks as our date-due slips during December, and the winning artists will be recognized within the library as well as on our social media.
Sheldon Smithens is visiting the library again this month, and hopes to be joined by his Canadian Pickers partner, Scott Cozens. His visit will be on Saturday, Nov. 26, 1 to 3 p.m., and he will answer all your questions about the world of antiques.
Do your kids have some days off from school during the week of Nov. 7 to 10? Do they need something to do? Bring the whole family to the library. We will have self-serve games, crafts and activities for them to enjoy all week long!
