We are half way through the summer and we have had some very exciting programs and we have read many books. For the TD Summer Reading Program, we have a reading challenge for every participant in our Tiny Tinker, Energetic Engineer, and Teen programs. We have created a giant circuit maze and the goal is to complete the maze and connect the circuit. If the participants read over the summer, they can fill out a reading log and record the number of minutes spent reading. Every hour of reading moves us roughly 5 inches further through our maze. If the maze is complete by August 22, then we will have an awesome pizza party. Every participant who turns in a reading log also has their name entered into our draw for a chance to win some awesome prizes. Until then, we encourage everyone to keep reading and to come check out the exciting programs offered at the library.
Here is what is happening next:
July 30, from 6 to 8 p.m. is teen night where we will be attempting to be creative through the art of filmmaking. Teens can come learn how to make their own movies and maybe even a little bit about editing what they create. There will also be an awesome snack.
Friday, Aug. 1 from 2 to 4 p.m., the library will have visitors…miniature ponies. Come see these adorable, fluffy, kid-sized critters and enjoy a few other exciting activities at the library. Everyone is welcome.
The Stettler Public Library is very excited to announce that we will be having a guest author come in Aug. 5 at 6 p.m. Nathan Banda was born and raised in Malawi, Africa. He will be sharing his experience growing up in Malawi and the process of writing his memoir “Moments That Shaped My Life.” Refreshments will be served. Don’t miss out on the excitement.
Due to the library being closed on Heritage Day, the movie matinee will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 6 at 2 p.m. We will be watching the hilarious family comedy “Despicable Me.” Come enjoy the movie, laughs and some wonderful popcorn.
On Aug. 6 at 6 p.m. is another awesome teen event. We hope to be playing the photo scavenger game “Roaming Gnome” as well as trying our hand at cooking. It is sure to be a fun and educational event for all in attendance.
On Mondays and Fridays, there’s Reading Buddies at 10 a.m., where you can practice your reading with another person and Gargantuan Gardening at 11 a.m. On Tuesdays and Thursdays is our Tiny Tinker (10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.) and Energetic Engineers (2 – 3:30 p.m.) programs.
