Pigeon Lake ‘Speaker Series’ aims at planetary bodies

Pigeon Lake Public Library has game day, other events coming up

Here’s an update on the happenings at the Pigeon Lake Public Library.

New at Pigeon Lake Public Library, we are a community library for all residents and visitors in the west community: County of Wetaskiwin and all the Summer Villages of Pigeon Lake. We are located on Hwy. #13A in Ma-Me-O Beach.

Starting this Saturday we are open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the convenience to the community members who can’t make it in during the week. For the month of February we are having special activity days to get families to come in and play. Feb 02, 2019 we are having a game day, come in and play Croninole or checkers or any other of many fun games. Feb 09 is construction day, we will provide cardboard boxes and you can make robots, castles, garages (for matchbox cars) or curl up in one to read. Feb 16th is puzzle day see how many puzzles can we make in three hours. Puzzles are for children and adults. We will have hot chocolate for everyone.

Another great reason to spend Saturday mornings at the library are just the family time to spend together without interruptions. Experts say we need to listen more to each other and what is a better way to do it. Or just come in to pick up your books or a movie for your weekend pleasure. This Saturday hours are in effect until our longer Saturday hours in the summer, so check our website.

Also new at the library is our “Speaker Series,” offered once a month or more often when we have a speaker available. Our first speaker was Jan. 30, and it was Tom Owens from the lake and he did a fabulous presentation on astrophotography. He showed us how to look for stars and planets with the naked eye as well as binoculars and telescopes, then showed us his amazing photography. We had a full house in our Community Room and he had our attention through the whole presentation. The presenters we are interested in are people from the community who like to share their knowledge on a particular subject, not something to sale. If you have an interest or an idea for us to explore for a speaker please call the library and we will investigate it.

Also New is Little Lions Read Along: every Thursday 11:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m., Art Group alternate Wednesdays 7-9 p.m., Knitting Club Wednesdays 2 p.m. and two book clubs.

This little library at the lake has so much to offer, we post information through Facebook on “Pigeon Lake Library Happenings” and “Pigeon Lake Positive.” Come in and see what we are all about. Our hours are posted on our web site: YRL Pigeon Lake Public Library, operated by Lakedell Area Community Library Society. or Facebook “Pigeon Lake Library Happenings.”
