The Stettler Public Library has survived another successful Monster Bash. We have a packed November with many other days to celebrate prior to a visit from the jolly man dressed in red.
Join us for our last Readers’ Circle of 2015 on Thursday Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. when we discuss the book “Tell the Wolves I’m Home” by Carol Rifka Brunt. It is a moving story of love, grief, and renewal as two lonely people become the unlikeliest of friends and find that sometimes you don’t know you’ve lost someone until you’ve found them. Copies of the book are available at the Library.
On Saturday, Nov. 7 at 2 p.m., the Stettler Public Library welcomes Rick Smallwood, a documentary filmmaker whose latest work is about one of Stettler’s most infamous events: the Robert Cook murder case. We will be showing the film “The Grease Pit” and Rick will be available to answer questions about the documentary. Come early so that you can get a good seat.
The library will be closed on Wednesday, Nov. 11 to observe Remembrance Day. Lest we forget.
To celebrate the fall school break, the Stettler Public Library will be offering events to keep the kids entertained.
Join us on Thursday, Nov. 12 at 1 p.m. for the entertaining PG-rated movie “Shaun the Sheep”. When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill lead them all to the big city and it’s up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home. As you can see, it is a great movie for everyone. And there will be popcorn.
Did you know that Friday, Nov. 13 is Kindness Day? We are going to celebrate the day at 1 p.m. by inviting everyone to spread kindness through their lives with bookmarks and cards created for this special day. This event is open to kids of all ages.
Also on Friday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m., bring your two left feet and learn to dance with Miss Rhonda. Learn the Two-Step and other dances in time for the holiday festivities. It is open to anyone who wants to learn to dance but you must pre-register. Call the Library at 403-742-2292 to take part.
Join Crystal on Saturday, Nov. 14 at 10:30 a.m. to learn your next life skill: finger crocheting. It only requires yarn and your fingers and you will walk away with a gorgeous scarf.
