Living Library

by Lindsay B - 0 Comment(s)

National Human Library Day is a one day event hosted by local libraries and media and cultural centres across the country, in an effort to help dispel myths and stereotypes by creating an opportunity to have a conversation with someone you may not have met otherwise.

Members of the public will have a chance to "check out" a "book" and ask questions to learn about the person and their extraordinary life.

This event will take place on Saturday January 26 from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Check out the link below to see which "books" are available at participating branches.

Art on the Go, Words on the Move!

by Christina Haska - 0 Comment(s)

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!
