Ahoy, pirate invited to storm library

It’s the time of year for young swashbucklers to polish up their hooks, strap on their peg legs and start practicing their “Aarrrs”.

It’s the time of year for young swashbucklers to polish up their hooks, strap on their peg legs and start practicing their “Aarrrs”.

Pirates will be swaggering around the poop decks on Saturday, Oct. 13th when Sylvan Lake Municipal Library celebrates “Pirate Day”. Beware the “walking of the plank” and find the X that marks the treasure spot.

All pirates are invited to join the librarian mateys for some high adventure. Come in costume and use your best pirate talk.

There will be pirate activities, crafts and games for all ages, as well as grog and hardtack, from 1-2 pm. This is a free event but does require registration as it has limited enrollment. Call 403-887-2130.
