Fall happenings at the Mary C. Moore Public Library

Lots of programs back on schedule as busy autumn season unfolds

BY MARY POOLE

I’m so glad classes have started this week. I was running out of material. Adults are not nearly as entertaining as children so my co-worker’s four-year-old daughter will have to fill in this week. When asked to say sorry to her little brother she replied thoughtfully, “Sorry is a word that adults like to hear and kids hate to say.” Such wisdom for a young person. (She still had to say sorry). I’m sure there will be more pearls of wisdom for my next column.

The Lego Club is beginning again. The club will meet on Sept. 20th from 3:45-5:45 p.m. Children six and under must be accompanied by an adult. We could really use some adult volunteers to help out with crowd control and clean-up. If you can help let us know or just come Tuesday afternoon. The Lego Club meets the third Tuesday of the month.

The next evening for Colouring for Adults is Sept. 21st from 6 8 p.m. in the History Room of the library. Materials are provided or you may bring your own. Adults only please.

There will be a fall party event in the Children’s Program room on Sept. 24th from 10 11 a.m. Please call 403-782-3433 or come into the library to register as space is limited.

The MCMPL Film Club will be meeting on Sept. 27th at 7 p.m. in the Read and Relax area of the library. We will be discussing the film Still Mine. This movie can be ordered from the library or is available on Hoopla. For more information and trailers, go to our web site at www.lacombelibrary.com.

Don’t forget that the Reading Challenge deadline is Sept. 28th. The bookmarks are available at the library. I have completed mine but I cannot win the wonderful prize since I am staff (so unfair).

The children’s programs are full but, if you didn’t get into a class, please come and say hello, I’d like to hear how school is going.

The MCMPL Book Club will be meeting Oct. 4th at 7 p.m. in the Read and Relax to discuss the novel The Love Song of Miss Queen Hennessy by Rachel Joyce. This is by the same author that wrote The Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. New members are welcome. Refreshments are provided.

The Armchair Travel series will be resuming mid-October and the History Lectures at the end of October. Watch the website for dates and speakers.

We have received a poster entitled ‘Calling All Kids’. Mary Lambert is a Juno Award nominee and is holding on-line auditions for a children’s CD. Children ages four to eight need to be recorded singing an a cappella version of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Children of all ages can record their best laugh or their best pirate sound or pirate saying. Alberta residents chosen to record with Mary will be contacted. Deadline for online email submissions is Oct. 14th. For complete information go to www.marylambertmusic.com

Our book this week is Robin Williams: A Singular Portrait, 1986-2002 with photographs by Arthur Grace. Grace and Williams became friends in 1986 while Grace was on assignment for Newsweek magazine to shoot their cover story, ‘Comic Genius’. This book covers both private and public photographs taken exclusively by Grace. This is an incredible coffee table book about an incredible man.

Mary Poole is the children’s programmer at the Mary C. Moore Public Library in Lacombe.
