Saddletowne presents: Adult Book Club!

by Alyssa - 2 Comment(s)

The Saddletowne Library is very pleased to present our newest program.....an adult reading club!

The reading club's first meeting will begin on Friday, September 19th. You do need to register for this program with your library card, but once you do, you will be able to pick up our first reading club book, The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. The reading club will be a great way to meet new people, share your love of reading, and listen to different ideas about books and literature.

thirteenth tale by Diane Setterfield

At reading club meetings, we will be:

  • discussing the book
  • choosing a book for our next meeting
  • sharing our love of reading!

To register for this program, you can register online at the Calgary Public Library website, drop by the Saddletowne Library in person, or call us at 403-260-2620. Come join us!

Looking for a new book?

Looking for a new book?

We've all experienced it - the disappointing, empty void after finishing a really, really great book. How do we move on? How do we recover? Where will our next book fix come from? And most importantly, how will we find the time?

If you've ever found yourself asking these questions, worry no more! There is a new display at the Saddletowne Library featuring Quick & Easy reading recommendations from our diverse and helpful staff. Featuring everything from quirky graphic novels to short classics, check out our picks for you! Best of all, our recommendations truly do focus on the words "Quick" and "Easy", so you won't feel the need to over-commit (we all know how exhausting that can be!).

Remember that according to the CBC, only six minutes of reading a day can improve your stress levels and over-all health!

If you're looking to blaze your own book trail, here are some other recommendations:
