February Fun at the Library!

Jan. 27, 2024

February may be the shortest month of the year, but 2024 is special because it’s a leap year! And that means we have an extra 24 hours this month to dive into our favourite reads!

Stay tuned to our website and social media pages for Spring 2024 program information coming soon!

Santé pour deux/Health for Two is a pre-natal and post-natal discussion group with exercise training sessions. Join us on Friday, February 9, from 10:30-11:30 a.m. This series of events is presented in partnership with Institut Guy-Lacombe de la Famille. Please note: this program is presented in French. For more information and to register go to www.beaumontlibrary.com.

Seniors Corner presents Older, Bolder, Better! Join us on Tuesday, February 13, 1:00-2:00 p.m. Dr. Haidong Liang will talk about resources available for seniors and their social networks to become bolder and better!

Did you know we offer a tutoring program at the library? Student to Student Tutoring Connections is a program where we connect honours students to younger students in need of homework help. If you have a teen who is interested in becoming a tutor or you have a student requiring support in their studies, contact the library!

Your Beaumont Library card offers access to many different e-resources. One of our favorites is Solaro, which provides study help for Math, ELA, and Science for grades 3-12. Solaro follows the Alberta curriculum and contains thousands of practice questions and core concept sessions to help students of all ages. All you need is your library card to sign in and start today!

February is Black History Month, and the Black Impact Alliance Foundation of Beaumont will be exhibiting a multi-panel display portraying the history of the Black Community in Beaumont and area from January 28 - February 9. Come learn and explore the materials on display!

Looking for a great read? Staff are loving author Travis Baldtree’s low-stakes high-fantasy series! Dive into Legends & Lattes and Bookshops & Bonedust, the first two books in the series. If your idea of a great heroine is a mercenary Orc named Viv who loves coffee, books, and cinnamon buns, then the Legends and Lattes series will be your new favorite read!

We are always looking for volunteers to help at the library, whether with events, programs, preparation, or other tasks. If you’d be interested in volunteering your time and talents, give us a call at 780-929-2665.

As always, we are grateful for the love and support of our wonderful community and look forward to seeing you at the library soon!
