Marigold and the Western Irrigation District (WID) celebrated the start of construction of their new joint facility with an official ground-breaking ceremony in Strathmore on September 11.
In October, Marigold libraries are encouraged to participate in Celebrate Your Library Month in combination with Library Card Sign-Up Month. People love their library and they love having a chance to express that appreciation!
Promoting Celebrate Your Library Month and Library Card Sign-Up Month is a way to increase awareness and build connections to your library and its role in the community. If your plan of service has a goal to increase the number of cardholders, these initiatives would be fun ways to achieve your goal!

As you likely know, the Government of Alberta has announced the province’s relaunch strategy, Opening Soon.
As part of that strategy, the Government of Alberta is beginning to carefully and gradually lift restrictions imposed as part of the COVID-19 response. Stage One of the relaunch began Thursday, May 14th. Public libraries remain closed to the public right now and should continue to offer virtual services during this time.
Saturday, April 18 was a banner day for Marigold. 39 Marigold Trustees participated in our Board meeting, which was a record turnout for Trustees (39 out of 44)! Marigold is pleased that everything worked so smoothly with our first Board Zoom conference. Now we have another reliable option to conduct future meetings. All the motions in the accompanying survey passed.
We were more than excited to see the funding announcement from Dr. Diana Davidson, PLSB Director. This was about the distribution of 50% of the provincial library operating grants that are coming soon.
