While Airdrie Public Library’s (APL) programmers have been on a program break preparing for upcoming spring programs, we’ve managed to have a sneak peek at what’s coming.
The popular After School @ APL Zoom programs – Crafternoon, Tween Zone, Full STEAM Ahead, and Paws, Feathers, and Scales – are back offering unique crafts, clever games, and astounding science projects, and visits from all kinds of critters.
All your favourite Preschool programs hit the literacy road with a flurry of songs, rhymes, and story times for ages birth to 5.
This session, teens continue with Take and Make, where participants grab a DIY kit from the library and complete it at home by themselves or with friends online.
Teens also have the Teen Advisory Council where they can earn volunteer hours and build practical skills.
The multiplayer strategy game Among Us continues, with two age groups, 6-12 and 13-17, in a monitored and private environment over Zoom.
Makerspace returns with the popular puzzle-solving Makerspace Mystery, and the all new Makerspace Mentoring, where you can book a 30-minute session with our Digital Literacy Programmer to get 3D printing and makerspace equipment questions answered.
The Author Series returns with an exciting Zoom event from Calgary’s C.L. Polk.
Polk will be reading from their latest novel “The Midnight Bargain,” a Canada Reads and Nebula Award nominee.
Peer Support for Mothers, held in partnership with Families Matter, will provide an info session on their Peer Support Group for mothers who are dealing with post partum depression.
Adults will find Planning for Retirement, and APL’s Trivia Night, where teams of up to 5 can show off their knowledge and learn new things.
One more program, in partnership with the City of Airdrie, Dos & Don’ts of the Blue Cart will explore just that, what and what not to put in the blue cart.
