We're so excited to let you know that we are preparing to reopen our library facilities for in-person Express Service! Our Dawe & Timberlands Branches will reopen on Monday, March 15, and our Downtown Branch will reopen very soon (date to be determined -- stay tuned!).
We are also happy to announce that we will continue to offer curbside services for those who do not wish to come inside, even after we open for Express Service.
Our fabulously creative staff continue to amaze us with their Kits to Go ideas, bringing “programs in a box” (okay, sometimes it’s a bag ;)) to you to enjoy from home. As always, these kits are available on a first come, first served basis (no holds, sorry!). Here are a few of the kits that we have coming up this month:
March 10 - Craft Take Out: St. Patrick's Day & Easter theme
March 11 - Busy Bag #3 (matching activities)
March 15 - CD Scratch Art
March 18 - Water Bead Fun
March 22 - Family Science: Oobleck
March 25 - Busy Bag #4 (fine motor skills and patterns)
We're excited to team up with Scientists in School for a series of hands-on virtual STEM workshops for kids this spring! In the first program, we'll discover the surprising science hiding in a bag of Skittles. Explore solubility, buoyancy, reactivity and investigate the odds of finding your favourite colour. How sweet it is! Registration is required to receive a Mini Science Bag and a link to the virtual presentation. To register, call 403-346-4576 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Act fast! Registration is limited to 15 people.
