Fundraising takes new shape for Ponoka Jubilee Library

With the big move coming up next year, the Ponoka Jubilee Library is planning ahead

Dan Galway

Ponoka Jubilee Library manager

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Many folks have been inquiring about how they can help the Ponoka Jubilee Library in our transition from our current facility to the new Community Learning Centre and how they can support us in our day-to-day operations.

Last week we started a Christmas funding drive. A donation to the Ponoka Jubilee Library makes a fantastic gift for the literary folks in your life, community-driven citizens or perhaps that aunt or uncle who is impossible to shop for!

Here’s how it works: Posted prominently in the library is a Christmas tree. Each donation will be represented on the tree with different coloured bulbs. We have four tiers of recognition based on dollar amounts: blue for donations of $5 to $25, red for donations of $26 to $50, silver for donations of $51 to $100 and gold for donations of $100 or more.

Patrons will have the opportunity to write their name or the gift recipients name on the bulb and put it on our fundraising tree. Additionally, you will be given a card acknowledging the donation to give to the recipient and the option of a receipt for income tax purposes. If you have any questions, please drop by, call, Facebook message or email the library for details and clarification.

Coming up this month at Ponoka Jubilee Library: We have our regular LEGO Club program every Wednesday in December from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., StoryTime every Thursday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., and FairyTale Picnic on Fridays from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.

FairyTale Picnic will be taking a break on the 22nd and the 29th of Dec. but will return the first week of January. We will also be hosting Maker Madness on Dec. 19th where we will be making duct tape Christmas ornaments. For the grown-up kids of Ponoka we will be screening Christmas classic Die Hard and making John McClane Christmas ornaments on Dec. 21 at 6 p.m.

Please note that we will be closed from Dec. 25 and 26 and Dec. 30 to Jan. 1. As always, stop by the library to pick up a program schedule, visit our Facebook page for the latest happenings and check out our Twitter for updates and musings from library land.
