Unleash your inner geek for a contest – Literally Yours


Bobbie Mappin & and Sean Higgins

Geek /gk/ Noun (def.): a person with an eccentric devotion to a particular interest. We know you all indulge your inner geek once in a while.

Are you a geek for video games? Do you go geeky for ballet? We want to see you get your geek on. Snap a photo of yourself or someone else letting their geek out to play while also reading. Submit it by e-mail to spl@libs.prl.ab.ca or bring it in to us by August 25th– prizes to be awarded to the most awesome and geekiest geek! We will be posting your pictures on our Facebook page, so please make sure you’re not in the witness protection program if you participate.

As a reminder: if your kids are still too young for the summer reading program, Read and Rhyme is still running through the summer every Wednesday morning at 10:30 am, so bring your little munchkins down for some ‘moms and tots’ time.

What’s going on for the rest of the week? Tomorrow from 2:00 to 3:00 pm, 9 to 12 year olds are going to be having an intense match of Bartman ball outside. Tomorrow night at 6:00 pm we’re watching Scott Pilgrim vs. The World with the teens – best movie ever.

On Friday, kids of all ages are invited to come out at 11:00 am to have story time in our giant library fort! At 2:00 pm, all teens are invited to a magical birthday party for our favourite wizard hero, Harry Potter, who turns 31 on July 31st!

Please come in your best dress robes.
