There is a new crew of summer students at the Camrose Public Library to run different programs.

The Public Library has officially welcomed their new summer staff who will be working to offer a variety of programming for all ages to Camrose. 


We would like to introduce them and give some background on them and their program! Be sure to come into the library throughout the summer to say hi to them. 

Morgan Sorensen is one of the programmers for the Summer Reading Club and is returning for his third summer at the Camrose Public Library. He is going into his fourth year at the University of Lethbridge as a New Media major, and is also an internet celebrity. This year for the SRC he hopes to have even more awesome programs than last year and blow away the reading challenge of reading across Canada.  

Liana Nand will be the Book Bike programmer this summer! She is a third year psychology student at Augustana. She is returning for her second summer here at the Public Library and is excited about the plans they have in store for everyone. The Book Bike plans to take part in many festivities this summer as well as the Downtown Farmers Market. She hopes to see you out and about this summer.  

Valerie Brown is the new Intergenerational Programmer for the Library this summer. She is going into her fourth year at Augustana University as a Sociology major where she will be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree. This summer she will be coordinating programming to create connections amongst the various generations in Camrose. She’ll see you throughout the summer on the library’s new bicycle, “The Life Cycle”, as she gives community members rides around town, at festivals and parades, and the Downtown Farmer’s Market.  

Vanessa Gratrix will be a programmer for both the Summer Reading Club and the Book Bike. She is taking Digital Media at Prairie College and will be returning there in the fall to complete her diploma program. She is looking forward to being involved in the community and creating fun summer activities for everyone to participate in. 

Finally, Thais Polo is a part of the Summer Reading Club and Book Bike programming teams this summer. She survived through her Bachelor of Arts at the University of Alberta with a Drama major and Women and Gender Studies minor. School’s not out for Thais yet, as she is pursuing a Masters of Information Studies to feed her love for libraries. She is beyond excited to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday through the Summer Reading Program. 

This summer the library’s summer staff will be offering free programming to the Camrose community to promote lifelong literacy and memorable experiences. Be sure to stay tuned on the Camrose Public Library Facebook page and through our Weekly articles in the Canadian to see more of what we will offer throughout the summer. We can’t wait to meet everyone and we encourage all ages to come out and get involved with the Public Library this summer.
