Sonja Harder stopped by Lloydminster Public Library yesterday to pick up a bag of library goodies. Sonja was the winner of the Library Book Spine Poetry draw. Each poetry submission got you a chance at our draw. Sonja took home a LPL travel mug, book light, audiobook and LPL earbuds.
If you haven't seen Sonja's and the rest of the entries in the Library's gallery, you still have time. The Library will display them until the middle of July.
Congratulations to Amanda Warner, our lucky winner of the silver coin designed by Cindy Sorley-Keichinger. Amanda entered our draw at Lloydminster Reads which she attends every year. She's not a coin collector but with such a beautiful coin she's thinking of becoming one.
Join us at Lloydminster Public Library (Lower Level Atrium Centre) on Monday, June 15 at 12:00pm for the unveiling of a sculpture presented to the Library by the Dewald Family in memory of long-time resident Kay Shepherd.
Come meet members of the Dewald family. Check out the Library's other displays (including one that is quite popular with the younger set) and this year's Book Spine Poetry Gallery.

With less than a month to go until the start of our 9th (!!!) Festival, our program is now available for download as a pdf. Click the Festival Program link on the left for your own online copy. Or stay tuned to this space as we will update you as to when and where you can pick up a paper copy.
Arts Without Borders and Lloydminster Public Library invite you to create your very own Book Spine Poetry to be displayed in the Library during the Festival.
Book Spine Poetry is made by stacking books so that when you read their spines, it makes a poem. Poems range from quite short (4 or 5 books) to epics. They can use any type of book as long as it has legible words on the spine.
To have your poem included in our exhibit, create the poem, take a digital picture of your work and submit it using our online form. Submissions are limited to no more than three (3) per person. Each submission gets you an entry in our draw for a prize bag containing all sorts of cool library stuff.
Poems will be printed out and displayed at Lloydminster Public Library during the month of June. We will also have a slideshow of entries on our website.
This year why not try our Gail Bowen challenge. In honour our our Lloydminster Reads author, create a poem using one (or more) of Gail's Joanne Kilbourn mysteries. The library has all the titles in its collection although some may be out on loan.
