The latest news and updates from Camrose Public Library.
Welcome to the Camrose Public Library Newsletter!
Hello Camrose! We hope this finds you warm and cosy (and healthy!).
We can start the month off with some great news - CPL is now fine free! No more overdue fines will be collected.
We are ready for a long winter nap, so it's good that the craft project for Subject Matters this month is an embellished fleece throw blanket. Pick up a kit while supplies last.
Don't forget to check out our kids photo challenge - the theme for December is Cosy.
We still have safety measures in place:
Please practice social distancing.
Wear a mask.
Sanitize your hands when you come in.
Returned materials need to be quarantined, just to be safe. They will stay on your card for 7 more days, but there will not be any fines.
And don't forget that curbside pickup is still available! Give us a call at 780-672-4214 and we will bring your materials to the back entry while you stay in your vehicle.
To reduce barriers to service, the CPL board of trustees has voted for CPL to be fine free!
Going forward overdue fines will no longer be collected, fees will only exist for lost or damaged items.
Our e-resource is transitioning!
Between December 1 and December 8, RBdigital audio will be switching to ‘Libby by OverDrive’. You may have to place holds on items again once the transition has happened, but the books that you currently have signed out will be carried over in your account. We apologize for any inconvenience, but are looking forward to having this more user-friendly app in place!

SUBJECT MATTERS: A YEAR OF WEIRD AND WONDERFUL LEARNING FOR EVERYONE
Come along as we delve into a year of weird and wonderful learning! One topic, every month. You choose what and how you want to learn about it... we will provide the resources. Our December Subject Matters theme is COSY. Follow all the fun on our Facebook page here.
It’s cold out, it’s time to snuggle in and curl up with a good book and a warm drink. In December we want you to be happy and warm, and, of course, cosy. We have all kinds of feel-good recommendations for you to help escape the cold and warm your heart.
