For the Love of Libraries

This week’s column was written by Jacqueline Kozak, director of the Radium Public Library, and Donna Tunney from Friends of the Library.

The Radium Hot Springs Public Library will once again be hosting our annual Easter Egg-Stravaganza event on Saturday, March 30 at the Radium Centre.

The free outdoor egg hunt will begin at 9 a.m. sharp. Follow the signage and keep an eye out for our special guest – the Easter bunny – who will be waiting to greet guests near the starting point (near Brent’s Shack). Collect and find the coloured eggs as directed, and then bring them back inside to an Egg-Stravaganza volunteer to claim your goodie bag, while supplies last.

We then invite you to join us for crafts, snacks, face painting, and temporary tattoos inside the Radium Centre. 

Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Radium Library have a full, exciting lineup of events for you this year.

 On the Saturday of the May long weekend, we’re repeating our successful annual yard sale in partnership with the Radium Fire Department and the Radium Rotary Club. And, with spring on the horizon, that means spring cleaning. After you’ve gone through the garage and the attic, if you have household items, toys, tools, and sporting equipment you no longer need, donate them to us for the sale. We’ll begin accepting items at the beginning of May. And don’t forget to attend on the big day! Bring the kids to meet Randy the Ram, Radium’s mascot, and enjoy the mouth-watering barbecue prepared by volunteer firefighters.

As we move into summer, look for our Pop-up Book Sales during Radium’s Market on Main. And in November, we’ll be holding our fourth annual book sale at the Radium Hot Springs Centre, with great prices on books, games, and crafts.
