The Stettler Public Library would like to thank you for making it our busiest year ever, with 68,836 visits in 2012!

Let’s top that by coming and checking out the programs that we have for you in the rest of 2013.

This Thursday is packed with information for everyone. At 6 p.m., the library is hosting a speech and communication development parent information session. Parents can learn about childhood communication development from a speechlanguage pathologist who will teach strategies to encourage communication skills in children. Everyone is welcome.

Also on Thursday, at 7 p.m., we have help for those who received an ereader for Christmas. Are you excited but not sure how to use it? The Stettler Public Library is here to help you become comfortable with our e-Reader workshop. There are a limited number of spaces available, so you must pre-register at 403- 742-2292.

We are also pleased to announce a new Saturday afternoon program: Crafternoons and Coffee Spoons. Your kids get to do crafts while you can relax and have coffee. The first Crafternoon will be this Saturday at 1 p.m. and yoga will be discussed. Come and join in the monthly fun!

The Chicks with Sticks Crafting Club is back on Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 7 p.m. Bring your knitting, crocheting, cross-stitching, etc. and enjoy the company. If you’re a beginner, get some extra help in starting your project.

Family Literacy Day celebrations begin with Game Over Jr. on Friday, Jan. 25, from 6 to 8 p.m. Boys ages fi ve to 10 are invited to come and enjoy a night of gaming of all kinds complete with hot dogs and snacks. Call the Stettler Public Library at 403-742-2292 to register.

Activities for Family Literacy Day continue on Saturday, Jan. 26, with a cross-stitching workshop for tweens at 10 a.m. and more fun and games at 2 p.m. Bring the whole family for an afternoon of games, prizes and sundaes! Play Mad Libs, make wacky sentences, build the best sundae ever and share the recipe and win a year’s supply of Alpha-bits and other prizes.

We celebrate literacy at the library every day, but sometimes it’s nice to make a splash! Later on in January, there’s Superhero Night on Tuesday, Jan. 29, at 6 p.m. Come dressed as your favourite superhero, make a comic book wallet, and then watch the Amazing Spiderman. What a great way to end the month!
