Library to sponsor a Rimbey Reads contest

Rimbey Library has come up with a fun and educational way to celebrate Canadian Children’s Book Week

Participation: Three-year-old Jessica Jordan was one of the youngsters who took part in an Earth Day party held at the Rimbey Municipal Library

Rimbey Library has come up with a fun and educational way to celebrate Canadian Children’s Book Week as well as promote children’s authors and encourage literacy for young and old.

During Children’s Book Week to be held May 3 to 10, the library has selected several children’s books for a Rimbey Reads contest.

These books are ‘Good Families Don’t’ by Robert Munsch, ‘The Queen’s Secret’ by Freda Wishinksy, ‘I want my Hat Back’ by Jon Klassen, ‘Something From Nothing’ by Phoebe Gilman, ‘Alligator Pie’ by Dennis Lee, ‘Boy Soup’ by Loris Lesynski, ‘There Were Monkeys in my Kitchen’ by Sheree Fitch, and ‘Once Upon a Golden Apple’ by Jean Little.

Library manager Jean Keetch said the public may vote for one book once a day and will be required to give a comment as to why they voted for that particular book.

“Voting is open to all ages and no library membership is required,” she said.

Draws for prizes will be made on the final day of the contest when the winning book is selected.

For additional information please contact the Rimbey Municipal Library at 403-843-2841 or email

A library program based on the winning book will be held later this year.
