Distantly Social

Looking for some social interaction?  You've come to the right place.  There's something to do every Thursday at 6:15pm for families and friends - you can choose which Thursday gatherings you would like to enjoy.  Currently we are "virtual" but we will meet physically when we are able.  We are meeting on Zoom but call in (phone) options are available.  To register, contact our programmer, Verna: vwicks@draytonvalleylibrary.ca or 780-514-2722.

Third Thursday of the month: Art Innovations

Inspired by librarian & artist, Pam, follow guided art projects with room for innovation and creativity.  If you are unable to provide your own supplies, please ask - we may be able to give or lend you some.  (We are looking into making art kits to help with this.)  If you don't have the exact supplies, don't worry - be innovative!  Instructional videos are usually posted on YouTube afterwards.
