Stettler Public Library

The summer is well underway and so is our Summer Reading Program. We’re just finishing up week four of the Summer Reading Program here at the library, but there is still so much to look forward to.

I also want to let you know about a change of schedule on Friday, July 28. The library will be closed from 1 to 3 p.m. because of a maintenance issue so we have changed the time of our Friday movie that day. Join us at 10 a.m. for “Spirited Away!”

On Wednesday, Aug.2, at 2 p.m. we will be having a storyteller visiting us! Join us for the wonderful tales of professional storyteller Mary Hays as she entertains us with stories of tricksters, fairy tales, Canada, and a lot of other wonderful things. Bring the whole family for this fabulous event because all ages are welcome.

Then, on Aug.9, at 2 p.m., we will be having a balloon tying session, so stop by the library and pick up a brand new skill. But spots are limited for this event, so please pre-register by calling the library at 403-742-2292.

On Wednesday, Aug.16, at 2 p.m., we will be watching Part One of the Canadian classic Anne of Green Gables. And you don’t want to miss any of the story so join us again on Friday, Aug.18, at 2 p.m. for Part Two. Popcorn will be served at both showings.

We hope our Summer Reading clubbers have been keeping track of their reading minutes. We have been making our way across Canada one minute at a time, but we still have a long way to go. Each minute read is 500 metres … so the more, the better. Reading logs are available at the library, and you can check out our progress when you come see us.

Join us on Mondays at 3:30 p.m. for our Teen Cooking Club, for ages 12 and above, as we make yummy culinary creations. This requires pre-registration, so check with the library about what’s cooking when you register.

Did you know basketball was invented by a Canadian? Speaking of basketball, one of our summer students Andrew is hosting drop-in basketball every Wednesday this summer starting at 2 p.m. Just meet him at the library and bring appropriate gear, along with a water bottle, and it’s game on.

If you would like more information about more Summer Reading Program events, or to register for the events listed, please call 403-742-2292.

As always, for the most updated information please check or our Facebook page for news of any other neat events and activities.
