This is one of those columns where we chat about what’s coming up at Airdrie Public Library (APL), so if this doesn’t apply to you, please feel free to turn to the classifieds section.

Classifieds are always interesting and, like libraries, you’ll find an assortment of just about everything.

Coming up in our teen Fri-YAYS! series, there is a DIY Video Games intro in The Makerspace May 24, where teens aged 13 to 17 will learn how to code and program their very own video games. It’s introductory, but will provide the basic knowledge for the more curious-minded teen to build on what they’ve learned.

Continuing with Fri-YAYS!, there will be an evening of Teen Gaming May 31.

Our Community Wellness series – in partnership with Airdrie Addiction and Mental Health Clinic, Community Links and Highland Primary Care Network – offers up a Slice of Happiness May 28, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. This long-running and popular program will help participants understand what makes people happy, and how to apply these skills to their own lives.

And, as our spring programming winds down in time for summer, here are a few dates to remember:

For our younger patrons, there are two sessions of the ever-popular LEGO Club left – May 28 and June 4 – before APL programs take a break to prepare for summer.

Full STEAM Ahead chugs along May 29 and June 5, with drop-in programming designed to challenge and strengthen your noodle.

Our two Junior Book Clubs, grades 1 to 3 and grades 4 to 6, will wind up May 23 and 30, respectively.

Tween Zone will see two last Fridays, May 31 with gaming and June 7 with DIY with Stepping Stones.

Don’t forget, our two new preschool programs – A League of Super Dads and Family Storytime – run three more Saturdays before taking a break for the summer: May 28, June 1 and June 8. The final session of Super Dads will see participants building a mini wheelbarrow.
