Airdrie Public Library (APL) would like to thank the community for your support of our Adopt-a-Book program in 2013.

This important annual program provides for the addition of approximately 200 books to our collection.

The books adopted are a testament to the community’s generosity and mean the world to us and our patrons of all ages, and we look forward to seeing you again next year.

Once the holidays are over and 2014 rolls around, APL is looking forward to being able to provide a whole host of interesting, entertaining and illuminating programs for adults.

New this winter is Writing Memoirs (Jan. 29), a one-and-a-half hour session with practical tips on how to get started organizing and recording your memories.

Our winter wellness series from Alberta Health Services offers two information sessions: Aging Gracefully (Feb. 11) and Relaxation and Meditation for Stress (March 18).

The sessions are free, but online registration is required.

As part of our author series, we will be welcoming authors Glynis Whiting (March 20) and Chris Turner (April 10), and we’ll also be offering digital library information sessions on e-books, e-readers and mobile access to library services (February and March).

Our annual High School Art Gala is another popular event, which will be held March 4 this year to kick off our True Colours exhibit highlighting the artwork of local high school students.

Also in the New Year, the popular English Language Learning returns, as does our regular One-to-one Technology Tutoring.

As well, as the slate of clubs, from chess to genealogy to knitting.

So feel free to drop by or visit us at to see what we have to offer.

There’s sure to be something for everyone.
