Indie-Lethbridge 2019

One hundred years, one hundred stories. As part of the library's centennial celebration next year, we are currently seeking submissions for Indie-Lethbridge 2019. This second year collection will be composed of stories written by Southern Alberta authors, or set in the same area. 

We are pleased to announce the library will now be accepting children's materials and music albums as part of this collection. Anyone interested in making a submission can fill out the form below and either email the form to indie@lethlib.ca or return it to any library service counter.


Sports Laughs

Hockey, basketball, bobsledding!  Have a laugh watching big sports on the big screen.

All movies start at 7pm at the Crossings Branch and are presented with Closed Captioning.  Plus - free popcorn!


Volunteers Needed for Slime-a-Palooza!

Do you like science? Do you like to work with kids? Then the Crossings Branch needs you for Slime-a-Palooza!

Slime-a-Palooza! runs February 23 from 1:00-3:00 pm. At this event you'll be helping kids who are five and above, and their parents, to make slime and oobleck. We ask that volunteers arrive at 12:30 for training and be available until 3:30 to help with clean-up. A reference letter with volunteer hours can be provided upon request. This opportunity is open to teens in grades 7-12.

If you're interested, or if you'd like more information, please contact Emily at Emily.Kundrik@lethlib.ca.

Can't make Slime-a-Palooza! but still interested in volunteering at the library? We'll have other volunteer opportunities coming up that have to do with science and technology. Please contact Emily for more information.


DMs Needed!

We're looking for D&D Dungeon Masters!

Starting in February, we'll be hosting a teen Dungeons & Dragons program - and we need your help!  If you have experience as a DM (even just a little bit) you can apply to help teens learn to play the game.  Volunteer DMs can be teens or adults - just fill out the form to let us know you're interested.
