|They say they're the "hub" of our community, and with busy months like this one, they definitely are! From Open Houses to sewing to money issues and plants, you'll want to fill your calendar with visits to the Didsbury Municipal Library!|
They started March celebrating Freedom to Read month, standing up for the freedom to choose for yourself what you like to read - they don't let others dictate for you.
At the end of February was Pink Shirt Day, where staff and volunteers made it very clear that bullying is NOT alright!
Tuesday, March 6th is the Library's Open House and Volunteer Appreciation. Join your community at 7 pm for an evening of laughter, appreciation, refreshments, and memory and history scrapbooks.
Their "Sew What?" series runs on Saturday March 3 from 2 - 4 pm, or Wednesday March 7 from 6 - 8 pm. Come in and learn sewing basics with Marge Steckler in the Library's MakerSpace. Using the Library's sewing machines, you can even make your own tote bag. No charge, but please pre-register. (Class size limited, so register soon.)
There's a special "Death Matters" gathering on March 22nd where Olds and District Hospice representatives will talk about the goals of hospice, how it supports families, processes to be followed, and more. Runs from 6:30 - 8:30 pm and is another evening enabling us to more fully live.
And on Saturday, March 24th from 10 am - 3 pm, pop into the Library for "The Local Grow", a conversation and lots of information about growing food in town. Learn more about the Seed Library we've got here.
And there's Money Mondays where you can become more literate on financial matters.
And there's so much more! Learn more of what's available by reading this month's newsletter.
