Climate Action Week is taking place at the Moose Jaw Public Library from Nov. 4 to 10 with several activities taking place.
An “I Love The Earth” storytime and craft is taking place on Nov. 4.
Throughout the week, there will be “Sustainability Bingo” for kids, youth and adults.
“The bingo cards are available on our website, or you can pick them up at the library. We just ask that they do the activities on the bingo card and then they get entered into a draw to win an eco-friendly prize,” said Moose Jaw Public Library public service/social media clerk Naiomi Setter.
There is also a Zine workshop for those 13 and older to come and make a Zine. Supplies are provided and there is an option to add your Zine to the library’s catalogue.
Two adult programs will be taking place. An Eco Anxiety workshop will be held on Nov. 5. Pre-registration by Thursday is required as the speaker is from out-of-town and if registration is low the presentation will be done via Zoom. You can register on the library’s website.
There is also a “Prairie Resiliency: Farming and Producing in a Changing Climate” workshop on Nov. 9 with a guest speaker from the University of Regina. Both workshops are free of charge.
Other events taking place at the library this month include its first-ever Trivia Night after hours. The event is in celebration of the Palliser Regional Library’s 50th anniversary. The Moose Jaw Public Library is hosting it along with the Palliser Library and the Moose Jaw Museum and Art Gallery on Nov. 17 from 7 to 10 p.m. Tickets are available at Eventbrite for $15 each. All of the proceeds will benefit the library’s summer reading program.
Dungeons and Dragons and other roleplaying games continue to be popular at the library. A four-part mini D&D campaign takes place every Tuesday evening. Those interested in attending are asked to register right away as it is expected to fill up quickly.
The library is offering Tween tabletop roleplaying games called “Cats in High Places” for those ages eight to 12 on Nov. 23 from 4 to 6 p.m.
“It’ll give that age group a little bit of an opportunity to try out the roleplaying game program. If it is something they enjoy, then we’ll continue to offer it and it leads them into the teen D&D programs and other roleplaying games that we offer,” Setter said.
The library is also continuing its regular programs including Saturday kids' programs, Wednesday teen nights, book club, Tabletop Tuesday, Needlework Night, Tech Times and several free movies throughout November.
