StoryWalks at the Spray Park

QUESTIONS: call 780.985.3472 or email circulation@calmarpubliclibrary.ca

StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children—and adults—to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children's book are displayed and installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll along, you are directed to the next page in the story.

This month’s story is Dear Mr. Blueberry. We are very grateful for the Calmar Elementary School for lending us the Storywalk!

Songs & Stories 

TO REGISTER: call 780.979.2385 or frn@leduc-county.com

This program is a fun way to bring music, songs, books and crafts together at one location. It offers songs and activities for parents, caregivers and children to enjoy together in a group setting. We will be doing crafts that are planned around the book theme for that week, along with movement breaks and singing. E-mails will be sent out to registered participants with a reminder of the date and a brief look at the activity planned on that day.

This program is in partnership with the Family Resource Network.

Living Library

Honouring Orange Shirt Day and National Day for Truth and Reconciliation 

QUESTIONS: call 780.985.3472 or email circulation@calmarpubliclibrary.ca

Human beings are like books: they contain stories and wisdom far beyond their covers or outward appearances. This session will feature speakers who have lived experience related to the legacy of residential schools. We recognize the profound harms that the residential school legacy has and continues to cause indigenous families and children. Every child matters and all children require love to grow and develop optimally. It’s time to open up conversations between indigenous folks and settlers, increase our understanding and move forward in the truth and reconciliation process as Canadians.

The Indian Residential School Crisis Line is available 24-hours a day for anyone experiencing pain or distress as a result of their Residential school experience: 1-866-925-4419. We are proud to offer this program in partnership with Creating Hope and Leduc County Family and Community Support Services.
