The Adult Colouring Group at the McLennan Library is definitely proving fashionable with a substantial turnout at each meeting.
The group has been getting together for a number of weeks now and the response is positive and enthusiastic. Apart from an opportunity to get out and spend some time with others, the colouring group provides a fun, meditative process and a relaxing way of spending an hour and a half or so in the afternoon. For anyone wishing to participate, the group meets every Tuesday at McLennan Public Library at 1.15 pm.
Another program underway for the month of November at McLennan Library is Food for Fines, allowing those with outstanding library fines to have those fines forgiven if they come by the library and donate food items to the regional food bank.
Librarian Maureen Fisher recently attended the Alberta Rural Library Conference held in Grande Prairie September 23 to the 25. At a pre-conference presentation on the Online Learning Centre, run by Learn Alberta, Fisher attended an informative workshop outlining what a comprehensive and valuable resource Online Learning Centre is, particulary for teachers and parents engaged in home schooling. It is also a useful resource for anyone engaged in research or in the process of learning language.
However, the Online Learning Resource is especially valuable for teachers as much of the resources it offers are both specific to grades and related to school curriculum, so it is directly relevant and valuable for all students studying in Alberta.
