The Swift Current Library will soon be open Sundays from 1:00 to 5:00 PM and host a new club program Sundays from 2:00 to 4:00 PM. 

Beginning on June 2, The Swift Current Library will be open on Sundays, a decision that was the norm just a few years back. Sundays will bring a new club as well, welcoming avid bookworms and boardgame lovers alike. For a two hour meeting time every week, the Scrabble Club will be able to congregate. 

Olivia Brotzell, the new public services manager for the Swift Current Library and Chinook Regional Library played a large part in the organization. 

“As people have needs that sometimes don't line up with our regular hours, our standard library services will still be available on Sundays, so they can come and borrow items or use the computers, use the Wi-Fi, and that kind of thing,” Brotzell explained. “If people are looking for a bit more opportunity to connect with people, we're definitely happy to offer that.” 

The Scrabble Club is intended for older youth and adults, but Brotzell reminds patrons that there is still plenty of engagement available for young children. 

"A game and a relaxed setting can help people connect and with the Scrabble club, we're just hoping to offer people an option for something fun to do on Sunday afternoon,” she stated. “It's not at all exclusive, so the whole family can come out.”
