Can you believe it’s only a month until the holiday season, in which Albertans will celebrate such events as Kwanzaa, Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, New Years, to name a few?
We here at Airdrie Public Library (APL) love holidays, but we’re not quite ready to put our feet up just yet, as we still have some fantastic programming to come before then.
This week, look for our scavenger hunt, organized by APL’s Teen Advisory Council. Designed for ages 13 to 17, the hunt is on from Nov. 26 to 28, and involves following clues on our website to locate places where participants will be asked to take a picture with their favourite book, for a chance to be entered to win a prize for the most unique pic.
Monday, Nov. 29 will see the last of our Writer in Residence sessions with Calgary author Simon Rose. This prolific children’s and young adult fiction writer will be giving a reading from his novels and answering questions about his work.
December will see the final three sessions of Adulting Basics 101, with expert advice on investing, nutrition, and maintaining good credit.
For preschoolers, look for the virtual Mighty Machines event. Visit our website to view our Mighty Machines videos and to enter a contest for a chance to win a prize pack.
Snowflake Follies, for ages to to six, is virtual again this year, and offers a winter wonderland of songs, stories, and fun activities. Themed activity bags will be available to registered participants.
December also has two very cool programs for teens. Holiday Cards, for ages 13 to 17, involves participants picking up a kit at the library starting Dec. 10, which includes all the necessary items to make holiday and crossword puzzles that will be given to Airdrie seniors.
Lastly, Holiday Take and Make is a seasonal variation of the popular program for teens that provides a craft kit with supplies to make a holiday decoration with their friends or by themselves.
