We just finished screening the first of our selections in this year's Brown Bag Film Fest (Spirit Doctors) and I must say it was a very powerful and thought-provoking documentary. Look for it in the Library's collection later this summer.
There was a lot of creativity on hand this afternoon at Lloydminster Cultural and Science Centre as the Lloydminster Potter's Guild held the popular Play with Clay. Check out the slideshow in our gallery for proof of that.
Thanks go out to our hard working volunteers who also had fun getting their hands dirty.
One of our most popular events is the Quick Draw, held during the Mayor's Celebration of the Arts. Artists create a piece of art during a set time and the results become part of a silent auction with the proceeds going to support arts bursaries.
This year artists will have 90 minutes to create their masterpieces and we, the audience, have the opportunity to see the creative process.
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 Saskatchewan challenge. In honour of the Saskatchewan setting of our Lloydminster Reads selection (Liberty Street by Dianne Warren), create a poem using one (or more) books featuring Saskatchewan.
