Ponoka library includes signs in Cree

Programming at the Ponoka Jubilee Library is ramping up

Dan Galway

Ponoka Jubilee Library manager

The Holiday season is upon us!

We have been busy at the Ponoka Jubilee Library developing programs and services to make your holiday merry and bright.

First off, if you come visit us, you’ll notice that we finally have signage up in our space: we chose to colour code each section of the library, and added Cree translations to each of our collection signs.

It was a long wait, but we also have some comfortable seating in the space, although we are still waiting on some finishing touches. We do have plenty of spaces throughout the library for folks to take a load off and read.

We have a full roster of programs this month

We have moved our Young and the Restless (Babies and Books) program to Wednesdays from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m., and have moved Tagalog Storytime to Thursdays from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Crafty Saturdays are a great opportunity for crafty gift-making and are running for the next three Saturdays at 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.. Here’s what we’re doing: Dec. 8 (Chocolate Pops), Dec. 15 (Wooden Holiday Signs), Dec. 22 (Hot Chocolate Gift Bags).

We are screening two contemporary classics for our Kids Film Screenings this month, with ELF on Dec. 14th and Arthur Christmas on Dec. 28th.

Don’t miss our documentary this month, Tree Man, which follows a Canadian man who travels to New York every holiday season to sell Christmas trees. We will be closing at 2 p.m. on Dec. 24th and 31st and our closure dates are: Dec. 25 and 26th (2018) and Jan. 1st (2019).

We have lots coming up this January, including the return of our popular speakers series, Life Stories.
