It’s just past midnight, and your roving library reporter is back with another on-the-scene report from Game Over.

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — It’s just past midnight, and your roving library reporter is back with another on-the-scene report from Game Over. We are currently into the fifth hour of this 12-hour gaming marathon and the combatants are still going strong. It might be due to their age or the amount of sugar that they have consumed in the last four hours.

2:24 am Your roving library reporter is on the scene at the Library’s Game Over and everyone is still going strong. This reporter needs a caffeine kick but everyone else has their eyes glued to their screens.

4:29 am Your roving library reporter is now just counting the minutes until this epic event is over. This reporter knows that she sees a shower and a bed in her future. Nevertheless, for now, she will sign off and wish everyone sweet dreams. Moreover, if you want to hear how Game Over 2017 ends, come to the library for eyewitness reports. However, this reporter knows that Game Over will return in 2018!

In other exciting news, the library will be operating a kid’s fun zone at the upcoming, annual Stettler Steel Wheel Stampede. On Friday, June 9 from 5 to 9 p.m., and on Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11 from noon to 6 p.m., we will be at the Stettler Agriplex with fun games, crafts, and movies for your children to enjoy while you enjoy the rodeo. This will also give everyone a taste of what Andrew, Ashley, Jordan, Patty and Riley have in store for this year’s summer program!

The end of the school year is fast approaching, and with it your last chance to boost your marks. On Tuesday evenings from 5 to 8 p.m., we have tutoring sessions with a certified educator. Get ahead of the curve, grab your homework, and head to the library.

The library is now hosting Read and Rhyme on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Are you and your toddler looking for something to do? Read and Rhyme provides a fun and educational environment to play and make some new friends.

For the most updated information, please check spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for news of any additional activities. We hope to see you soon!
