Connecting Libraries, Connecting People

The RISE Network works with public libraries to provide Albertans with opportunities to communicate with health care professionals, participate in distance education, attend meetings, learn new skills and more – all by videoconference from their local library.

 ...the potential for transforming public libraries, especially in rural areas, is enormous. This is a [network] that brings people together, strengthens our communities and creates another service niche for public libraries in Alberta.

Join the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum to explore their smoky cauldron and mysterious concoctions and make two types of slime! Gooey concoctions are perfect for those wanting to re-live Halloween!

Participating libraries will be shipped all of the necessary supplies to allow their patrons to make slime, live, with the Ann Arbor Museum. Appropriate for K-8 or public library patrons (younger children may need assistance measuring their ingredients).

Prepare for an ooey-gooey time!
