Library hosting Culture Days celebration

Your Sylvan Lake Library is once again a Host Celebration Site for Alberta Culture Days.


Your Sylvan Lake Library is once again a Host Celebration Site for Alberta Culture Days. Stop by the library on the 26th, 27th, and 28th of September to explore the art and culture of Sylvan Lake.

Art Stations will be set up inside and outside the library for the entire weekend. Come in and try your hand at painting, sketching, fabric decorating, and more! No experience necessary! You can help create a piece of art that will be displayed in the library year-round.

On Friday we’ll be doing Tie-Dye for Teens. On Saturday, learn how to make Dream Catchers and Bannock with Special Guest Cindy Leclerc, enjoy a lovely youth fiddler performance, and get your own Henna tattoo from local artist Archana Brown. On Sunday, African storyteller Tololwa Mollel and musician Garth Prince will be at the library for an Assembly Concert, performing Tololwa’s tale, Subira, Subira.

Rimbey Artist Edo Deweert will be displaying his work at the library all weekend. Stop by and check it out!

All programs and events at the Library are FREE, all ages welcome. Call the library at 403-887-2130 to register for these culturally-rich, exciting events. Go to for more details.
