ESL Coffee and Conversation!

by Christina H - 0 Comment(s)

Our ESL Coffee and Conversation has been a lot of fun at the Saddletowne library, but several of our customers have asked if we could offer it at a later time instead.

We certainly think we'll have even more fun if we have more people visit, so starting this Tuesday March 13th, we are moving our meeting time to 6:30 - 8:00 PM!

So stop by after dinner and enjoy practising English with your new friends!

See you Tuesday!

On March 15th, Saddletowne library is pleased to offer a one-night course that will provide information to assist you in starting Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs) for your children.

Registration for this program is necessary, so please call, stop by or visit today to register!

Art on the Go, Words on the Move!

Anyone who has done a quick google search of "Calgary arts" knows what an exciting and vibrant arts community we have. The Calgary Public Library loves to be part of this exciting community, and we're offering our customers a chance to show off their talents in visual and written art!

Saddletowne library has a "Words on the Go" journal and an "Art on the Move" sketchbook that we encourage you to sign out, and fill with your own personal art or literature! Our journal and sketchbook are located above the reference collection, so if you are in the branch feel free to take a look at the art done by your fellow Calgary Public Library members!

The art created in the journal and sketchbook become part of our library collection, so visitors to the Saddletowne branch can see what other local artists in the area are creating.

We hope that you take part in this fun art project at Saddletowne library! Remember, if another artist has the journal or sketchbook you can always put it on hold! If you want to place a hold on either of these items, search "Art on the Go" or "Words on the Move" and select "Saddletowne Library".

Happy creating!
