Help plan fun at the Ponoka Jubilee Library

Looking for new ideas and events in this week's library column.

We’re continuously planning new programs here at Ponoka Jubilee Library, hoping to reach out to everyone in one way or another. Most of the programs that we offer are free, every once in a while they cost a little something, but all of them are meant to bring people together, impart some knowledge, and be fun. Public libraries are now community hubs that offer a wide array of items and activities. With that in mind we have put together a short programming survey that we’re hoping the people of Ponoka will be willing to fill out for us, so that we can have a better idea of what appeals to you. It’s 10 very quick and simple questions, and can be located at Thanks in advance for your time!

Now that you’ve taken three minutes to fill out our survey, let me tell you about the events that we already have planned for the next couple of months.

In April we have our ‘Technology Petting Zoo’ on the evening of April 7, starting at 6:30 p.m at the library. Staff from the library and Ponoka Adult Learning will be on hand to answer questions, along with an assortment of tablets and eReaders for you to try out. On April 10, we have non-restricted and restricted Canadian firearms safety courses happening here. These courses are currently full, but feel free to contact Luke Peters at 403-741-9898 to be added to the wait list for our next one. And on April 22 at 2 p.m. we will showing Minions for our free family movie.

May is going to be a busy month at the library, starting with ‘May the 4th Be With You/Chop the Mop’ on May 4, starting at 6 p.m. Start the evening off watching library board chair Jerry Siemens chop away his mop of hair in support of the Canadian Cancer Society. Donations can be made at This will be followed by a Star Wars costume contest, where participants can win some great Star Wars themed prizes, and then a screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Drinks and snacks will be served. On Saturday, May 7 from 2-5 p.m., join us for an ‘Escape to the Spa’ day. Mini-pedicures, mini-manicures, mini-facials and make-up sessions will be available for purchase; drinks, snacks and door prizes will be available. This makes a great gift for yourself or the woman in your life, since we’ll be gathering the day before Mother’s Day. Contact the library for more information. May 20 is our movie day, we’ll be showing The Goosebumps Movie. And May 28 is our ‘Boardgames & Pizza’ afternoon for the kids.

Watch for a special June event for fathers and their kids, to bring them together for Father’s Day. And don’t forget Lego Club, Book Club, Story Time and Makerspace, our regular programs.

Coming Soon: A romantic suspense novel from New York Time bestselling author Karen Robards; watch for Darkness.
