Summer program grants from the Saskatchewan Library Association helped cap off a busy summer for the Luseland Library. We caught up with Library employee Kate Hughes who was eager to share on everything they've been up to this summer.

Thanks to the grant the local library was able to bring out Danny Kazam and his Young Wizards' Camp for 24 engaged participants. Kids made their own magic hat and learned some magic tricks, and then Kazam put on a wonderful show for any other interested community members. 

"The kids loved it and their parents were grateful to have such a wonderful program for their kids this summer." 

The magic event in August was their biggest event of the summer.

Fast forward to this weekend and they have another great opportunity coming up with the Harvest Festival running in Luseland.

"We brought in a bunch of blank ceramic coasters and people can drop in and paint one to take home. That event is open to everyone of all ages and at no cost to our patrons. We will also have some baked goods available for those stopping by, provided by our librarians."

Another thing to be excited for at the Luseland Library is local talent on display. They have a new display up in the art gallery, Seeing Through Shadow, showcasing the art of Luseland's own Jodi Laycock who is a digital artist that creates beautiful pet portraits despite her low vision.

You may remember Laycock from the documentary series Blind Trust: A Guide Dog's Journey that we covered earlier this year, produced by Adrian Halter who is also from Luseland.

The Luseland Library is always looking for ways to have fun. Don't be afraid to pull up a book, and follow along with whatever fun activities the local learning centre has coming up next.
