RPL NEWS
NEW SCULPTURE IN CHILDREN'S
AREA AT REGENT PLACE
If you’re visiting Regent Place Branch, be sure to check out our
newest sculpture in the children’s area. A carving by local artist
Garry Thurber was presented to RPL’s Regent Place Branch at a
special reception on Tuesday, October 7.
This new addition to RPL’s permanent collection, entitled "The
Hiding", was donated to the library by Dr. Roberta McKay and Elmer
Brenner. Carved from soapstone, the piece was based on a story
written by the artist about the lost city of Atlantis. Young and old alike are welcome to touch the sculpture and explore
its many intricacies.
RPL extends its thanks to Dr. McKay and Mr. Brenner for this
wonderful donation to the collection, which is sure to bring a great
deal of joy to patrons of all ages.
Dr. Roberta McKay and Mr. Elmer Brenner posing with the
sculpture titled The Hiding by local artist Garry Thurber.
RPL would like to extend heartfelt condolences to Garry Thurber’s family
after his recent passing. His legacy will live on through his unique and
timeless art.
Join staff at your favourite neighbourhood
branch for a fun, festive break during
the busy holiday season.
Each RPL location is hosting a
Holiday Open house in December,
to thank our patrons for their support over
the past year. There will be refreshments,
activities and entertainment for all ages.
Check in with your local branch for details,
and visit ReginaLibrary.ca for information on
upcoming programs for you and your family.
SPOTLIGHT ON STAFF:
GEORGE BOTHWELL BRANCH
Happy Holidays
Clerks and pages are some of the most important people in the
library. Pages are responsible for ensuring books are shelved
properly, lending a hand to patrons in the stacks and keeping the
library looking good. Our clerks assist patrons with finding reading
materials, managing their accounts, and using other library resources,
such as the public computers. We want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the clerks and
pages at George Bothwell, who were inadvertently missed in our
feature on that branch in our last edition. Many thanks to Mavis,
Carol, Beth, Jana, Shelley, Alexis, Patrick and Shazia for all their
hard work!

Connect with other makers and learn more
about bringing your ideas to life at Regina Public
Library’s Makerspace Conference!
November 28 & 29
Glen Elm Branch, 1601 Dewdney Ave. E.
What is a
Makerspace?
A Makerspace is a community-operated
workspace that provides free access
to technology and manufacturing
equipment. Users with common
interests can come together to make
stuff using the technology available.
A Makerspace encourages
experimentation and discovery
through collaboration and play.
A Makerspace is as diverse as its
users – while the traditional focus has
been on technology, a Makerspace
can be used to share and learn about
any number of topics: art, sewing,
manufacturing, carpentry… the list is
as long as users’ imaginations.
In fact, the list gets longer as artists,
engineers, scientists, hobbyists,
inventors, tinkerers, dabblers and others
come together to discuss ideas.
Users share and learn from each other
in a collaborative, creative atmosphere,
and interesting ideas, concepts and
mashups occur.
RPL’s upcoming Makerspace Conference
offers a dynamic range of speakers
and sessions. From steampunk style
to wearable electronics, yarn-bombing
to Lego mindstorming, horticulture to
green screen editing, our tradeshow will
have it all available for you to check out!
The conference will be held at Glen Elm
Branch (1601 Dewdney Avenue).
Register online at ReginaLibrary.ca, in person or by phone.

FROM WHAT REMAINS
Jason de Haan, Kerri Reid,
and Kara Uzelman
Curated by Blair Fornwald,
Assistant Curator
Comprised of primarily sculptural works,
From What Remains posits links between
aesthetic and scientific methodologies. Each
artist infuses data (in the form of found
objects gathered from remote sites) with
poetic and speculative meaning via material
transformations, replications, assemblages,
and tests that mimic anthropological and
archeological processes, but also suggest a
kind of alchemy or magical transformation
has taken place.

JASMINE REIMER: THE HARDER
SOFTER SIDE
Curated by Wendy Peart, Curator of
Education and Community Outreach
Jasmine Reimer, currently based in Guelph,
explores a fascination with found household
objects, perfectionism and material culture.
In order to deflate prescriptive approaches
to interior design and its denotation of high/
low class structures, Reimer fuses everyday
objects with fabricated raw materials to
refuse their functionality and their aesthetic,
creating an evocative mixture of the familiar
and the grotesque.

commerce shape our perceptions of nature,
which in turn contribute to a sense of national
identity. Photographs depict Velkova as a symbol
of Disneyfied “Canadianness,” wearing elegant
fairy tale gowns, surrounded by magnificent
scenery. A massive white neon prairie landscape
drawing further emphasizes the commercial
appeal of “the Canadian wild.”

DAVID RIEL.
Curated by Blair Fornwald, Assistant Curator
Regina artist David Garneau will present
a new performance artwork, Dear John;
Louis David Riel. on the 130th anniversary
of the death of the Métis leader. Dressed

A Cathedral
Destination
Tucked into a
quiet corner at
Elphinstone and
13th Avenue,
RPL's Connaught
Branch is in the
heart of the
city's Cathedral
Village.
Patrons are often greeted by name as
they enter the branch by Public Service
Clerks Melanie Tholl, Beth Ellsworth,
Jessica Eissfeldt and Hongli Li, and Senior
Public Service Clerk Cheryl Martin. In
fact, staff claim to know the names of 90
per cent of their patrons!
In fact, some say the library IS the
heart of Cathedral Village. “There
is strong support for libraries in the
Cathedral area,” Branch Head Tanya
Rogoschewsky said. “We’re lucky to
be surrounded by a community that
believes strongly in the importance of
libraries and the programs and services
we provide.”
Library Assistants Kaiti Webb and
Diana Cook help to instill the feeling
of community within the branch. They
work hard to address the unique needs
of their patrons, and think up new ways
to ensure those needs are met into the
future.
The Connaught Branch is a popular
destination for children and adults of
all ages. “We have a lot of foot traffic
throughout the day,” Rogoschewsky
said. “There is definitely a sense of
community at this branch.”
Connaught is also known for its
programs, in particular its food
programming. “We take advantage of
the range of restaurants in this city
to bring some unique and “flavourful”
programming to our patrons,”
Rogoshewsky said. From wine and
beer tasting to summer seafood and
everything in between, the staff at
Connaught are always cooking up new
and interesting programs of interest.
The Connaught Branch is ready to
welcome all visitors with a smile and an
offer of service. You can reach them by
calling 306.777.6078. RPL
