Library News – Stargazer Art Display

| September 10, 2014

Books-1What’s Happening at the Library?

There is a new art display up in the library until the end of September.  It is entitled “Stargazer” by Kiren Niki Sangra from Grande Prairie.  Featured is a selection of constellation pieces combining drawing, colour, animals and ornamentation.  Sangra has used graphite and acrylic paint on wood panel as well as embroidery and acrylic on canvas.  They are really quite delightful and well worth a trip to the library.

Our Family Lego Club is taking registrations for the fall session which will run from October 7 to November 27.  Families will choose to attend either Tuesday or Thursday evening from 6:30 to 7:30.

Library staff will suggest the theme for the first night and then families will be asked to suggest future themes.  Each family will have its own kit and will create a design with each particular theme in mind.

We have kits for 10 families so you will want to come in and register soon to reserve your spot.  The Lego creations will be on display in the library making for some very interesting viewing.

If you have little children you will want to check out our Time For Tots Webisodes on-line.  Mrs. DeBoer, our librarian, reads a story and demonstrates a craft for you and your tots.  Our website is foxcreeklibrary.ca.  You will find the webisodes on our home page, or if you like you can find them on Youtube, just search for Fox Creek Municipal Library.  They are also on our Facebook page at Fox Creek Municipal Library.

Can’t get enough entertainment?  Check out our latest e-resource, Hoopla.  You are able to download at no cost, up to five items per month, including digital video, music and audiobooks.
