Kimara White: October Library User of the Month

Kimara White,
Bachelor of Education student

“I have my grade 6 teacher to thank for my love of books. Until grade 6, reading was a chore that I avoided at all costs. Mrs. Rosell had a contest to see who could read the most books that year and I love a challenge! During class she would often read a book to us. I still remember ‘Jacob Tutu and the Hooded Fang’ and ‘Charlotte’s Web’ as two of my favorites.

As I listened and read I discovered that reading opened up a whole new world with each story. I won the contest that year by reading over 100 books and I still read daily. My love of learning has drawn me back to the college to fulfi ll my dream of being a teacher. My favorite spot in the library is the curriculum collection. It is full of amazing books, teaching tools, manipulatives, puppets and much more that can help anyone that works with children. I can usually be in found in the quiet study room in the library where I get most of my work done. Thank you so much for choosing me as the library user of the month! It is my favorite spot on campus. The library staff is amazing and always willing to help in any way.”

Alberta Culture Days @ the library

The library isn't just a place to read anymore, it's a place for music and learning.

For Alberta Culture Days the library celebrated with artwork, musical acts and of course coffee and treats. Everyone had a great time as faculty, students and community members were able to take a break and relax together. The event was especially fun thanks to the daycare kids who stopped by the library to take part. The kids themselves had great fun hanging out with Denise Henning (our MHC president) and David Humphrey showing them how a Ukulele worked. Thanks to everyone who took part for making the event such a success and thanks to Valarie Westers for organizing it.

We hope to bring more fun events to the library, so keep a look out for the next one.
