COLUMN: Autumn classes delights kids at Mary C. Moore Public Library

‘The children were telling me how fall is different from summer’

Mary Poole/Mary C. Moore Public Library Columnist

We were discussing the change in season and the children were telling me how fall is different from summer.

This was the three to five year old class and they were giving me the correct answers. The leaves change colour and then they fall off the trees and then…One little girl shouted out at the top of her lungs. “And then they’re completely naked! I saw three completely naked trees when I was coming to library!” The other children were very quiet and then one little boy said: “But they don’t mean to be naked. They just are!” I had to stop the conversation at that because who knows where it would have led.

Miranda will be hosting another Jewelry-making craft night on Tuesday, October 15 at 6:30 p.m. in the library. The cost is $5 per person. Please contact the library to register.

The next film in the Library Film series will screen on Wednesday, October 16 at 7 p.m. at Lacombe City Cinemas. We will be showing “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” directed by Jon Talbot. This film is rated 14A and is a poignant story of home towns and how they’re made and kept alive by the people who love them. Tickets are on sale now at the library for $9 until end of day October 15 or at the door for $10 pending availability. Get your tickets early since last month the movie sold out.

On Monday, October 21 at 7 p.m. in the County Room of the LMC, Turning Point will be presenting information on Fentanyl Awareness. This is a very important issue so please plan on attending. This is a free event.

On Wednesday, October 23 at 6:30 p.m. in the library, Miranda will be hosting a Fall Craft Night. For $5 you will make a beautiful wall plaque. (I am assuming it will be beautiful. I’m sure it will be.)

On Thursday, October 24 at 7 p.m. in the LMC the Friends of the Library will present the Lacombe History Lecture Series. The topic is “Veteran’s Voices of Canada” and the presenter is Al Cameron. Refreshments will be provided.

On Friday, October 25 from 1-3 p.m. in the Servus Room of the LMC we will be having a children’s Halloween Party. This can be a dress rehearsal for the actual Halloween night. Wear your costume and come and make some great Halloween crafts, listen to Halloween stories and have snacks and treats. Open to all ages but children must be accompanied by an adult.

We are taking registrations for the Christmas card-making workshop. For $20 you can make 10 beautiful hand-made cards; five designs and two cards each. The workshops are on Saturday, November 23 OR Saturday, November 30 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Light snacks are provided but you may want to bring a lunch as well. Please call or email to register.

Our book this week is a non-fiction portfolio called “Perception: A Photoseries” by K.C. Adams. This is an amazing book about how people are perceived and who they actually are. A phenomenal book!
