An Afternoon With Jane Christmas

Saturday, October 25th | 2:00 - 3:30 pm, Fort Saskatchewan Public Library

Enjoy an afternoon of humour and insight with bestselling memoirist and travel-writer, Jane Christmas. Featuring readings from her books and a Q&A session, this free program is open to everyone. This visit is made possible through partnerships with the Saint Albert Readers Festival (STARFest) and Edmonton’s Nonfiction Festival (LitFest). Check out her books at FSPL!

Read and listen to the Mix 107.9 News feature.

On September 29th, Travel Club participants were treated to a  tour of Israel & Cyprus with Sue K. as our guide. Here are some of her fascinating photos from the journey (click on the photos & scroll down to "Travel Club" for more). For an excellent description of this destination, download the PowerPoint presentation.

Join us again on Monday, October 27th @ 2pm for "A Few of My Favourite Things" -- an exploration of Dick E.'s top places, photographs, and stories.

More changes have taken place regarding ME Libraries.
Take a look at the ME Libraries site for a complete list of libraries involved – it’s quite a long list now!  

The TRAC consortium of libraries is now part of ME libraries. TRAC consists of the following systems: Marigold, Northern Lights (includes Gibbons), Peace, and Yellowhead Regional. 

There are a few public libraries in Alberta that are not members of a provincial Node, and therefore not part of ME. These are:

·         Andrew
·         Banff
·         Crossfield
·         County of Lamont
·         Lamont (FSPL has a reciprocal agreement with Lamont; patrons with a home library card can get a FSPL card for $12.00)
·         MacKenzie County (Fort Vermilion, LaCrete, Zama)
·         Veteran
·         Willingdon
·         Lloydminster (resource sharing done through Saskatchewan)

 

Thank you to all 641 patrons who completed our Community Survey.

Your input and ideas will direct our programs, collections and services over the next 3-5 years to create a library that is relevant and useful to you.

In addition to receiving a free one-year membership or renewal all entrants were entered into a prize draw.
