40th Anniversary

We're celebrating 40 years of service in our community!

On Feb 11, we held a day of family-friendly activities and fun. Our Bookmobile was on hand for tours and to celebrate its own 35th Anniversary. Our day included:

  • A book sale
  • Storytime under the Reading Tree
  • Games and green screen photos
  • Live entertainment with local musicians in the Agora
  • 40th Anniversary Ceremonies
  • Storytelling with our Writer in Residence
  • Free cupcakes
  • A scavenger hunt for all ages
  • Roving entertainers in the Library all afternoon
  • Spin the Wheel of Trivia for prizes
  • And an open house reception for previous and current Board members.
If you missed our special day, fear not - some parts of our celebration are still to come!

In the meantime, we are pleased to present a new 9-part video series, Strathcona County Library History.  Featuring interviews with former staff and board members, these brief and entertaining videos take you through how the Library and its bookmobile service were dreamed into being, and what it was like to be a part of it all in the early days.
