Rimbey Library celebrates beginning of spring

The Rimbey Municipal Library kicked off spring with a week full of programming March 14-22.

The Spring Festival, which ran in line with the schools’ March Break, kicked off with Zoo2U’s petting zoo on March 14.

Kompany Theatre were the main act on March 15 with the Adventures of the Squealy Moo Pirates.

Juno Award winning children’s entertainer Peter Puffin’s Whale Tales were at the library on March 19, and Friends Forever Puppets made an appearance on March 20.

A packed library watched and laughed alongside magician Chris Gowen on March 21, and Lorna Bennett wrapped up the festival on March 22.

Bennett hosted a series of age appropriate illustration workshops to teach kids how to draw.
