"Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world." - Ada Louise Huxtable

Game On! Beaumont Library Summer Reading Club is still a go! Things may look different this year at the Beaumont Library, but we still expect it to be a lot of fun. Our Summer Reading Coordinators will be planning daily reading connections, prizes, challenges & crafts. Check out our website & facebook for daily information for all ages.

Also, sign up today for our virtual Reading Buddies program, pairing youth with younger readers. We need Big (Gr. 5-12) and Little (Gr. 1-5) buddies who want to read, read, read! Forms are available on our website www.beaumontlibrary.com. Check out the TD Summer Reading site at https://www.tdsummerreadingclub.ca and sign up!

We continue to offer our excellent Short & Sweets, virtual programs for all ages. Check out our website or facebook for schedules.

Stroll by and enjoy ‘Woodlands’, our new exhibit from The Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program, located on the windows by our entry doors on the east side of the building.

Check out the wonderful work of various artisans, showcasing traditional fine crafts such as caribou hair tufting, beadwork, quillwork, embroidery and birch bark biting. Artist, Linus Wood’s acrylics on canvas “capture the spirit and personality of the animals that inhabit Alberta’s boreal forest.”

Alberta has entered Stage 2 of reopening plans and libraries are now able to open their doors to the public. While we miss our patrons terribly, we aren't quite ready to open our doors just yet. Rest assured we are hard at work preparing to reopen once we can do so safely. Stay tuned for more information on our website and social media platforms. In the meantime, our curbside pickup service has started. Check our website for details.
