On February 11, 2020, we were thrilled and delighted to have Alberta’s Lieutenant Governor, the Honourable Lois Mitchell visit us and present us with a selection of children’s books by Canadian author Lisa Bowes.
In January 2020, Shell Scotford generously donated $10,000 to the library to fund our Snacks in the Stacks program. Snacks in the Stacks is our new after school program that runs on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 3:15-4:30 pm when school is in session. Children are provided with healthy snacks to help fill the gap between the after school hours and dinner time. Children’s minds and bodies need fuel to grow into healthy, strong adults and we wanted to be able to give back to these kids, many of whom visit us every day.
2019 was a remarkable year, where we focused on instilling kindness in everything we did. For the full details, click here.

Lights Up on November 22, 2019 was a fantastic evening! The library had more than 1100 visitors between 4:30 and 7pm on November 22 – wow! That’s a lot of people who came to see Santa Claus, listen to storytime, check out the very cool model trains from Yellowhead Rail Club, take in the library, and take part in the festivities that the City put on! Hot chocolate, cookies, apple cider, photo booths, face painting… such a fun filled evening! Thank you to everyone who made it such a success!
On August 14, 2019, we hosted our first Read to a Horse Program!
Gary, from Arabian Horse Reading Literacy, brought Sox, a lovely and gentle horse, to be read to. We had amazing weather, and a fantastic turnout. Over 100 people came out to see Sox with many happy children reading selections from their favorite story, or one from the library. Thank you to the City of Fort Saskatchewan and to Gale Katchur, the mayor, who even read Sox a riveting tale from “Preparing for the Future”! Well I hope our future certainly involves having Sox back again next summer!
