Library to host Annual Giant Book Sale this weekend

The sale will be accompanied by a book signing and multi-author reading on Saturday afternoon, April 8.

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — This is your roving news reporter coming to you from the Nerf War at the Stettler Public Library. The scene is chaos as Nerf bullets fly close to me as I write this article. I fear for my life! This may be the last article that I ever write! However I have seen signs of heroics unparalleled in military history. This battle will go down in history as one of the deadliest I have ever witnessed!

Did you know that the library has free membership? Yes, memberships at the library are free! We made our membership free since the beginning of 2017, so you can renew your existing membership, or get a new membership at no cost. We are the best deal in town!

No matter what the weather turns out to be during the 2017 Stettler Trade Show, your local library has a few offerings from April 7-9 set in stone. While the Spring Trade Show goes on at the Stettler Recreation Centre, the library will be hosting the Friends of the Library Annual Giant Book Sale. Several authors will be visiting on Saturday, April 8, including a group of local Battle River authors, artists, and historians who contributed to a collection about the area called “Beauty Everyday: Stories from Life as it Happens,” edited by Dr. Jane Ross. There will be a book signing starting at 1 p.m., a multi-author reading with Dr. Jane Ross starting 3:30 p.m., followed by a “Beauty Everyday: Stories from Life as it Happens” book signing. The library will also be hosting a booth at the Stettler Trade Show, so keep an eye out for us.

Read & Rhyme is now being hosted on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings starting at 10:30 a.m. Bring your children aged five and under, and enjoy a fun, educational time with your child and other families.

I would like to thank all those who attended the 2016-2017 Film Circuit. The Stettler Public Library and the Jewel Theatre were thrilled to bring you this year’s crop of films. We will be back on Monday, Sept. 4 for the first movie of the 2017-2018 season. Passes will be on sale in August when we have the first four movies chosen.

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!
