Writer in Residence
Richard Van Camp comes to us through the Metro Edmonton Federation of Libraries, a partnership between Fort Saskatchewan, Strathcona County, St. Albert and Edmonton public libraries which works to share resources and collaborate on programs and good practices. The Federation has appointed two Writers in Residence in 2017: Richard Van Camp (regional) and David van Belle (EPL).
Find out more about this program at metrowir.com , including current WIR news, archives from previous Writers in Residence, and writing resources.
Settlement Services for Newcomers
A settlement practitioner is available at FSPL every Friday (except for the 3rd Friday of each month) from 10 - 4 pm. We recommend that you make an appointment by contacting Riza Coo Tuiza at 780-392-2935, RTuiza@eisa-edmonton.org.
Funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), the Library Settlement Services are delivered with partnership between Edmonton Immigrant Services Association (EISA) and Edmonton-area libraries. The primary objective of the Library Settlement Services is to connect newcomers to available services and resources in the community. This is done by Settlement Practitioners who are based in selected library branches.
Programs for Children
FSPL offers programs for preschool children and their caregivers from birth to 5 years of age, as well as programs for school-aged children.
Programs for Teens
Drop in each month for an after-hours "Teen Takeover", join the Teen Book Club, find an International Pen Friend, or volunteer for Leading to Reading (next intake: October 2017).
Programs for Adults
Join the FSPL Book Club, come to Colouring Night or Ladies' Night, meet fellow travelers as an Armchair Traveler, register for an individual computer or library apps training session, or attend one of our many other programs.
