Adult Book Club
Our new Adult Book Club has just had its inaugural meeting Sept 27 but it is not too late to join in. This will be a great evening to get together for discussion and refreshments. It will take place the last Thursday of each month at the Kitscoty High School Library from 7:30 - 9:00 pm.

Life-Long Learning Classes
We will be offering Crochet, Knitting, Looming and Craft Classes throughout the year. However we are trying something new with some of our classes to try to accommodate as many as possible. Classes will be held on Wednesday evenings from 7 - 9pm at the Kitscoty High School. We will be learning and creating during these sessions. Sessions will be drop in at a cost of $2 each night you attend. Or maybe you just want to join us and work on your own project and be part of the group! Keep in touch on facebook and the website as to what is happening each week. We will post plans there and if we need to cancel that week it will be posted.
We will be starting on October 3 and we will begin with a beginner “crochet a striped hat”. We will learn how to change colors, carry colors, and basic crochet stitches! Supplies will be provided but if you have a favorite hook or yarn in a stash bring it along. ( 5.5 hook, 2 ball one of each color - suggested red heart “Soft” or similar weight)

Resources
Our library offers many forms of resources and access to a vast supply or books for your reading and learning purposes. If you have any requests or needs from the library please do not hesitate to come in and let us help you out.
We always look forward to seeing you at the Library!
