Our Program/Outreach Coordinator provides more programming than what you may see on our library calendar. Here are some of the other things you may see her doing in the community.
Keeping up, and partnering with other organizations helps keep our community strong so our Program/Outreach coordinator attends a monthly inter-agency meeting to learn about the events going on in our community and also to promote our library.
Our library has partnered with Vanderwell Heritage Place (a seniors housing facility) in order to serve their residents library needs better. The Program/Outreach Coordinator takes books and other materials there monthly, and also provides the seniors with free library cards and hands on help with the various apps you can use with a library card.
Once a month our Program/Outreach Coordinator heads down to the Slave Lake Healthcare Centre to spend time with the Long-term Care patients there by reading aloud to them or bringing in a movie for them to enjoy.
Along with the regular outreach mentioned above, our Program/Outreach Coordinator strives to make sure that the library is a strong and active presence in the community. You may also spot her (or other library staff) at community events such as the annual Children's festival, Riverboat Daze Parade, local Trade Show or visiting the schools to promote upcoming reading programs!
