Lucas Reid the Branch Manager of the Estevan Public Library shared about how busy the 2018 year was.
Reid joined the crew through the summer and he recalls how his time in the Energy city has been thus far, "It's been going great, it was a bit of a change coming from New Foundland. But I've definitely welcomed it and have settled now, I'm enjoying the area and getting used to my position."
As for the programming and highlights of the year, "Generally overall the programming has been a highlight, the programs week to week that our programmers coming up with creative and interesting events to offer the public. We had several book sales throughout the year, all which were very successful. Also, we had our summer reading club which happened throughout the summer, and its a great way to get children and younger kids into the library to promote reading and literacy through the summer months while they weren't in school. We also had our farmers market program throughout the summer months, and I got to attend a couple of those briefly. I started in the summer and we had many programs that extended beyond the walls of the library."
Areas where he was able to see flourish in his time at the library this year, "There were several initiatives that were started while I was here, they were brought to my attention by our adult programmer Roxy Blackmore. They were the Seed Library and the Food Library, those are just two of the initiatives that have started since I've been here. It represents a shift into the different programs the libraries are offering, aside from books."
The library is looking forward to many programs coming back in 2019, and the new ones that will be developed.
