Lots of Christmas activities lined up at Stettler library

The Christmas season is now upon us and with it comes the Stettler Public Library’s Giving Tree.

If you would like to donate any toys or gifts for the Christmas Hamper Society, you can drop them off at the Stettler Public Library. Unwrapped gifts can be dropped off until the middle of December. Help us make this our best Giving Tree ever.

Alicia is hosting a seniors’ Christmas tea on Thursday, Dec. 2 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Join us for tea, snacks, games and some good conversation. Don’t forget that the Handibus is available from free rides to and from the Stettler Public Library. Call 403.742.5858 to book your ride.

Craftapalooza is back for another day of Christmas crafting fun. Join us on Saturday, Dec. 4 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. for crafts for people of all ages. Bring the whole family and join the afternoon at the library.

The Stettler Public Library is pleased to have award-winning freelance journalist Christopher A. Walsh visit the library on Saturday, Dec. 4 at 3:30 p.m. and talk about his first book and exposé, Under the Electric Sky.

Walsh delves into the fascinating history of the Maritime carnival; exposing the dark secrets and tales of deep compassion that have come to define the carnival here. This is one of the most curious stories of this region’s past and until now, the shocking and bewildering tale of the Maritime carnival and the Bill Lynch Shows has never been told in its entirety.

Fuelled by his own fascination with the Maritime carnival, Walsh spent a few feverish weeks touring around the region with present-day carnies. “I wanted to see what the carnival was like now, long after the glow of the glory days had vanished,” says Walsh. “What I found was a story that strikes at the heart of the Maritime character, in a place I never expected to find it.”

Brain Candy Book Club’s next topic of discussion is the book Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand. To be a part of the fun, join Heidi at the library on Tuesday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. for the “discussion”. If you are looking for something a little more serious, Reader’s Circle will be discussing the book Wild Swans by Jung Chang. Join us on Thursday, Dec. 2 at 7:30 p.m. for tea and lively discussion. You can call 403-742-2992 to reserve a copy of either book.

The Stettler Public Library’s first ever Girls Night: Teen Edition is set for Friday, Dec. 10 from 7 to 9 p.m. Celebrating all things girly and aimed at ages 12 to 18, the girls will be able to experience bra fittings, eyebrow waxing, makeup application, kettlebells, yoga and other fun stuff. Some guests will be charging a nominal fee for some of the services provided. There is a limited number of girls that can take part in the makeup application try-out. If you are interested, please call the library at 403-742-2292 to register.
