Wow! Is it really August already? Summer is flying by along with our Summer Reading Club! We had so much fun in July, and we are looking forward to continuing the fun times! Last week, we had a showing of “Despicable Me” at the Jewel Theatre that was attended by many minions and their families. As we write this we have just finished learning about, and creating, Inukshuks – the idea of snow seems pretty good right now with this hot weather!

The library will be closed on Monday, Aug. 7 so there will be no Summer Reading Club or Teen Cooking on that day. Enjoy the long weekend with your families and catch up on some reading!

Speaking of reading, a friendly reminder to our Reading Clubbers, get your reading minutes in! We still have a little ways to go to cross Canada and there are some sweet prizes on the line. So bring those logs in and check out our progress!

Our Friday Film for Aug. 4 is “Brother Bear,” so come for the popcorn and stay for the show at 2 pm, you hosers!

Have you ever made a balloon animal yourself? Is becoming a clown your life’s goal? Come learn a new skill with Amy Beard at the library on Wednesday, Aug. 9 at 2 p.m. Please call the library to register as spots and balloons are limited. This is a family event so all ages are welcome.

One of our summer students, Andrew is hosting drop-in basketball every Wednesday starting at 2 p.m. Just meet him at the library and bring appropriate gear, along with a water bottle, and game on!

Also, if you are looking for something to read and you are dying for a mystery, check out our new book display at the library. We are so proud of this display, also nobody was injured in the making of this display!

If you would like more information about more Summer Reading Program events, or to register for the events listed, please call 403-742-2292.

As always, for the most updated information please check spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for news of any other neat events and activities!
