Computer Class
On October 24 we will be having class 3 of 7 on Digital Resources.  This class is open to anyone interested in learning about what digital resources the library has to offer you and how to access them.  In addition, we will look at basic and advanced search strategies for internet search engines and databases to help you find what you are looking for.  Please call the library at 403-223-2902 or come in to register for this class.  This is a free program offered in part by Chinook Arch Regional Library System and the Canadian government.

Intergenerational Program for Seniors and Children
This is a free program for seniors and young children.  There are 6 sessions in the program and it happens once every six weeks or so.  Our next one is on Thursday, November 7 at 1 pm and it will be a fun art class.  Studies have shown that there are many benefits from connections between seniors and children, some of these are: decreased depression, better physical health, improved brain health and higher life satisfaction.  Please come in and register with Kim for this next session, it’ll be worth it!  All children must be accompanied by an adult.  For more info, contact the library.
