Libraries: More Than A Home For Books

Posted by: in Central East, Uncategorized

We all know that libraries are a great place for learning. One can find a library in nearly any community in Alberta, find information, facts, and help in relation to any subject you may be interested in. Of course, you can also go to any library to be entertained and/or enlightened with fictional books available for any age.

As modern technology advances though, the demand for more innovative forms of education and entertainment grows. And of course, libraries everywhere are keeping up to that demand. Libraries today have taken the initiative to become a central point for community cohesion. They offer programs, services and resources that meet the demands of community residents and either work in partnership with or for other non-profit/voluntary sector organizations in their area.

Take the Wetaskiwin Public Library for example. They offer a plethora of e-resources ranging from e-readers and e-tablets that can be borrowed. Once you have your hand on an e-reader or e-tablet you can then gain access to electronic resources related to the following:

The Wetaskiwin Public Library also offers numerous programs and in fact, they have also hosted Knowledge Connector information sessions, A.S.K. Assessment Workshops and a local launch for the second phase of the KnowledgeConnector website. Their involvement in KnowledgeConnector demonstrates their commitment to providing and connecting their community residents with leadership development opportunities.

If you are looking for a connection to leadership development, remember to look right in your own neighborhood at your local library and right here on our website for links to upcoming development opportunities in your local area. If you are a library trustee check out the Trustee Learning available through the Association. They now also take on-site session requests tailored for your chair, board and/or trustees.

What are you waiting for? Go visit your local library to find e-resources, programs and knowledge related to leadership development. For more information on the Wetaskiwin Public Library, call (780) 361-4446.

Until next time.
