12 Days of Giving

Support the food banks this winter by bringing donations of non-perishable food to the library branches!

We're collecting for the Lethbridge Food Bank and the Interfaith Food Bank until December 12.  Look for the bins by our Customer Service Desks!

Throughout December, you can also bring gloves, mittens, hats, and scarves to the Crossings Branch to fill our mitten tree.  All the warm things will be donated to local charities to keep Lethbridge cozy this winter.

Teen Book Club

Love Reading? Meet up with other teen readers with our monthly book club!

Our next book is The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson.  We'll meet on Friday, December 15 at 4pm to talk about it.
