Book Launch: Thursday, October 4, 7pm in the Fireside Lounge in the LMC. Join Lacombe author Fran Kimmel as she introduces her new novel, No Good Asking, and answers questions about her writing. Guests will have a chance to purchase copies of the book and enjoy snacks and discussion. Sponsored by Mary C. Moore Public Library. About the book: "What happens when a family nearing its breaking point takes in a troubled child over Christmas? Eleven-year-old Hannah spends only a week with the Nyland family, but they soon discover that she may be more balm than burden, and that the only thing harder than taking in Hannah may be letting her go."
Remembrance Day display: To mark this year's Remembrance Day, the library is creating a display to highlight the contributions of local veterans and active members of the Armed Forces. We are seeking photos and stories of those who have served in any capacity at home and abroad. We also encourage local submissions from those who called countries other than Canada home during the Wars. We will photocopy your original photos free of charge, and will provide basic frames. Stories should be limited to one page in length. We will gladly type any submitted in written form. Contributions gratefully accepted at the library until October 22.
Regular and special craft programs for Adults: Colouring, knitting, card making and crafts!
Genealogy Club: The library provides a time and space once per month, for family history enthusiasts to convene and share tips, advice and stories. Everyone is welcome to attend drop-in meetings -- no registration or regular commitment required. Tuesdays, October 9, and November 13, 4:30pm in the library.
