Library Update - September 22nd, 2008

Thanks again to Laurie and the crew at the GPPL for the update that I'll present at tonight's council meeting:

Friends Book Sale a Success!
Congratulations to the Friends of the Library. They held another successful book sale this past weekend. Approximately $1700 was raised.

Gaming @ Your Library
Wii has arrived at the Library! Explore gaming with the Children’s Library. Join us on Saturday October 4 for an afternoon of Wii fun! Refreshments provided. Registration is required so please call 532-3580 ext 226 to claim your spot! Ages 13 – 17.
Saturday Oct 4 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm.

The library will be holding two Fall fundraisers:

Grande Prairie Public Library's Non-Stop Crop
Do you love to scrapbook? Have you always wanted to learn? Before the turkey and the stress this Thanksgiving weekend, kick back and scrapbook with your friends while raising funds for the Library. Join us for 21 hours of uninterrupted cropping fun.

We’ll begin with a pajama party, coffee and snacks on Friday night. Classes will be offered throughout. Looking to start scrapbooking? Join us for a beginner class and start this addictive hobby with a bang!

Vendors will be on-site for all your scrapbooking emergencies. Tools will be available for your use. Prizes will be awarded to the three top fundraisers. Door prizes and goody bags are included. Meals & snacks are provided.

Make a date with your friends and book early as space is limited. Registration forms and pledge sheets will be available at the Library and online at September 2!

Fee: $25.00 + minimum fundraising amount of $50.00
Friday, October 10 at 7 pm to Saturday, October 11 at 4 pm at St. Paul’s United Church.

Franklin the Turtle Comes to Grande Prairie
Mark your calendar for Franklin’s Family Christmas Concert, an evening of fun in support of the Grande Prairie Public Library.

Join Franklin and friends as they get into magical adventures with a dancing snowman, a wacky gingerbread cookie, and a trio of playful elves. Celebrate the holiday season with lots of audience participation, singing, dancing and the jolliest Christmas spirit ever!
