Fun activities coming to the public library

For Rimbey and area youngsters during coming school spring break

Rimbey Municipal Library is laying out the red carpet for children in the area during their spring break and also on World Storyteller Day.

Librarian Jean Keetch said upcoming library guests will provide fun, entertainment and excitement for the children and there is no cost to any of the programs.

“We want to inspire the children and provide quality entertainment for them during spring break. All of the people who are coming are talented and sure to do just that,” she said.

Prior to spring break on March 20 is World Storyteller Day and who better to invite as a guest on that day but Gail DeVos, a well-known storyteller who will not only tell her own stories, but also encourage the children to do the same.

The week will start off with illustrator Lorna Bennett from Edmonton who will work with youngsters to learn more about this creative art.

Bennett will be at the library March 25 at 10 a.m. for Kindergarten to Grade 2 students, 12:30 p.m. for grades three to five children and Grade 6 and older students can work with the illustrator at 2:30 p.m.

Keetch is asking parents to register their children for this program.

At 6:30 p.m. on March 25, Juno award winner Peter Puffin will entertain.

The fun continues at the Rimbey Library on Wednesday at 3 p.m. with Bluffton ventriloquist Val Hilliker, who is well known in the area for her talent and skill.

Storyteller Peter Midgley, originally from Africa, will entertain the young folk at the library on Thursday afternoon at 2:30 p.m.
