Summer is well under way and we at Ponoka Jubilee Library are enjoying the sun and the fun.

We have the COW Bus coming to Ponoka Jubilee Library on Tuesday, July 21 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.  This Classroom on Wheels brings family literacy support and awareness to rural and urban communities throughout the province. The COW bus is a friendly space for parents and younger children to learn and explore fun new ways to add literacy activities into their daily lives. Trained facilitators are on hand to provide information on the importance of early language development. Everyone is welcome.

There are still a couple of days left for the community to come check out ‘Collage & Abstraction’, a traveling art show from the Alberta Foundation of the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program. These modern abstract art pieces are all produced by Canadian artists and will be on display in the front half of the library until July 20.

We still have spots available for a Non-restricted Canadian Firearms Safety Course on Sunday, July 19 from 8 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. You must pre-register by July 15, cost is $120/person. Go to www.albertafirearmscourse.com for more information, or call Luke Peters at 403-741-9898.

Emma Neufeld, our Summer Reading Club coordinator would like to send a big thank you out to all of the local businesses who have donated towards our program. The monetary and prize donations given to us make the program fun and educational for our program participants, and keep their brains busy while school is out of session.

The Ponoka Friends of the Library Society would like to thank everyone who donated items to our clothing drive, as well as to the kind-hearted Good Samaritan who donated his truck, trailer and fuel so that the items could be transported to Calgary. We were able to raise close to $200, and every little bit helps towards funding free memberships for next year. If you would like to make a monetary donation to Ponoka Jubilee Library you can either do so in person at the library, or online on our GoFundMe page at http://www.gofundme.com/tfkcb8. Tax receipts are available. And if you interested in joining the Ponoka Friends of the Library Society, please contact the library at 403-783-3843.

Don’t forget our Farewell Drop-in Tea for Sharie Kuhl on Tuesday July 28 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Come enjoy some coffee, tea, cake and a visit, as we say good bye to Sharie on her retirement after 26 years of service to Ponoka Jubilee Library.
