Theatre Alberta’s Library is participating in Outside the Lines again this year. Outside the Lines is a weeklong celebration demonstrating the creativity and innovation happening in libraries around the world. More than 230 organizations from Canada, Denmark, Croatia, United Kingdom, Puerto Rico, and all over the United States are participating from September 11-17.
We launched the Blue Bag Book Club last year and were overwhelmed by the success and support. 91 people participated in the event (we even ran out of Blue Bags to send) and we mailed over 425 plays throughout Alberta in one week!
FIRST order of business: WE NEED A NEW NAME
We are excited to introduce our NEW Purple Bags! Of course, this means the Blue Bag Book Club is no longer… well the BLUE BAG Book Club. We need your suggestions!
Get creative – use alliteration, abbreviation, puns, or a clever turn of phrase. Email us your “new name idea” between now and Wednesday, September 7 – the winner will be announced at the end of the day on Wednesday.
Registration for the Blue Bag Book Club opens on Wednesday, September 7 so be sure to keep an eye out! (Solveig gets back from vacation on September 13 so help us welcome her back with a pile of books and lots of Library love)
And now for the Thank You’s
Big thanks to Theatre Garage for going above and beyond finding the purple canvas and making our new bags, Perpetual Notion for the sunny design, and Print Machine for bringing it all together.
