You’re probably joining in on our online programs, but if you missed one, you can find lots of our recorded programs at www.midlandlibrary.com/free-online-activities, as well as curated resources from around the web and helpful tips for virtual learning.

We have a dedicated group learning more about Indigenous history and current issues by working through the University of Alberta / Coursera’s Indigenous Canada course, made popular by Dan Levy. We go over the course content and meet online every other Thursday evening for discussion. Contact [email protected] to join in.
If you’ve got a creative bent, consider joining in on our January Introduction to Cricut sessions – there are 4 dates and times to choose from!
