Even with Mother Nature’s nasty blast last week, Airdrie Public Library (APL) still played host to plenty of patrons.
Although our gate count was definitely down, the fact that our doors were open was welcome news to many, and we were pleased to be able to serve our public despite the weather.
Our programs for all ages are gradually winding down for the holidays, but registration for the winter lineup, especially preschool literacy programs, begins Dec. 16. Babytime, ToddlerTime, StoryTime and Step to Storytime continue to prove popular, and everyone is encouraged to register to ensure a spot.
Dec. 16 is also the last day of this year’s Adopt-a-Book campaign.
We still have lots of great books up for adoption, so drop by to browse the selection. When the books are adopted for our collection, a special name or remembrance may be put on the bookplate, and it makes a lovely Christmas gift for a loved one. As well, the adopter can choose to be the first to take out the book. This campaign is an important way for the community to support the library, and every bit of support is welcomed.
APL will be open for much of the holiday season. We will also be closed this Friday, Dec. 13, for a staff meeting, but we’ll be back to regular hours Saturday.
We will also be closed Dec. 24 to 26, and Jan. 1, and our Jan. 31 hours will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information on our hours, programs and services, visit: airdriepubliclibrary.ca
