As Spring continues, the Estevan Public Library (EPL) remains dedicated to bringing enticing programs to people of all ages. May offers a myriad of opportunities for community engagement, and Branch Manager, Jason Redshaw, joined the SUN 102 Morning Show to highlight a few events.

Marie Calder will be the first of two authors presenting at the library. On May 9, she will be sharing valuable insights for aspiring authors. Calder has released an impressive collection of 29 books, making her a seasoned expert in the field. Attendees can expect to gain invaluable knowledge about the writing process and the publishing industry. Following Calder's visit, Jan Keaton, another local author, will be joining the library on May 29. Keaton is renowned for her popular books 'A Prairie Girl' and 'A Normal Boy,' and attendees can look forward to engaging discussions about her works, accompanied by book signings.

May 15 is set to be a bustling day at the EPL, offering two captivating programs. First on the agenda is the new Speed Friending event, providing a refreshing take on traditional speed dating. This event caters to adults seeking new friendships rather than romantic connections, promising a relaxed atmosphere conducive to socializing and making acquaintances through a variety of engaging activities. Additionally, history enthusiasts can anticipate the library's monthly history talk. Led by Redshaw, who boasts multiple degrees in history, this enlightening discussion will delve into the British Empire's rapid decline, exploring various theories behind its downfall.

After a successful Spring Book Sale in April, the EPL in May looks to entice art enthusiasts with a Silent Art Auction. Running from May 14 to May 18, the auction will feature a diverse array of artwork generously donated by local artists and community members. Attendees will have the opportunity to browse the art both in person and online, with bidding commencing on May 15. With updates to the auction website every three hours, participants can engage in bidding wars from the comfort of their own homes.
