Library Link: Spring programming is in the air

While Airdrie Public Library’s (APL) programmers have been on a recent break preparing for our upcoming spring programs, we’ve managed to have a sneak peek at what’s coming.

While Airdrie Public Library’s (APL) programmers have been on a recent break as we prepare for our upcoming spring programs, we’d like to provide a sneak peek at what’s coming.

The popular After School @APL Zoom programs – Crafternoon, Tween Zone, Full STEAM Ahead, and Paws, Feathers, and Scales – are coming back, offering unique crafts, clever games, astounding science projects and visits from all kinds of critters.

All your favourite preschool programs hit the literacy road with a flurry of songs, rhymes, and story times for kids five years old and younger.

This session, teens continue with Take and Make, where participants grab a do-it-yourself kit from the library and complete it at home, either by themselves or with friends online. Teens also have the option of joining APL's Teen Advisory Council, where they can earn volunteer hours and build practical skills.

The multi-player strategy game Among Us continues with two age groups this spring – six to 12 and 13 to 17 – in a monitored and private environment over Zoom.

Makerspace returns with the popular puzzle-solving Makerspace Mystery, as well as the new Makerspace Mentoring, where you can book a 30-minute session with our digital literacy programmer to do some 3D printing and have Makerspace equipment-related questions answered.

APL's Author Series returns this spring with an exciting Zoom event from Calgary’s C.L. Polk, who will be reading from their latest novel The Midnight Bargain, which is a Canada Reads and Nebula Award nominee.

Peer Support for Mothers, held in partnership with Families Matter, will provide an info session on their peer support group for mothers who are dealing with post-partum depression.

Adults will find Planning for Retirement and APL’s Trivia Night, where teams of up to five members can both show off their knowledge and learn new things.

One more program we're offering this spring, in partnership with the City of Airdrie, is the Dos & Don’ts of the Blue Cart. This particular program will explore what and what not to put in your blue cart.
