We are more than half way through the summer and have had an awesome time with our programs so far and have read a lot. For the TD Summer Reading Program, we have a reading challenge for every participant in our Tiny Tinker, Energetic Engineer, and Teen programs. Our giant circuit maze is moving along to connect the circuit. The reading logs handed in by our Tiny Tinkers, Energetic Engineers and teens takes us about five inches further through our maze for every hour of reading. We are definitely getting close to our Aug. 22 goal of an awesome pizza party, but still have a long way to go. That’s why it’s so important to keep on reading and bringing logs in each week to record.
Also don’t forget about being entered into our draw for a chance to win some awesome prizes at the end of the summer with each reading log entry. So keep reading and come check out the exciting programs offered at the library each week. Here is what is coming up:
Aug. 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. is teen night where we will be having some fun with some “roaming gnomes.” Come join in the silliness of posing these gnomes however you like and take pictures as they go on travels and adventures throughout the library. There may also be some cooking involved and of course an awesome snack.
On Friday, Aug. 8 from 2 to 4 p.m., come join us for our family friendly event. This week it’s DIY Day. Come visit the library for an assortment of crafts and activities to keep the whole family entertained. From duct tape wallets to “makey makey” play, it’s sure to be a fun afternoon.
The Stettler Public Library is very excited to announce that we will be having a guest author come on 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 memoirs “Moments That Shaped My Life.” Refreshments will be served. Don’t miss out on the excitement.
As the library was 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, laugh and eat some wonderful popcorn.
Join us for a regular Monday Movie Matinee again on Aug. 11 at 2 p.m. Come for yummy popcorn and the viewing of an awesome movie.
Teen night happens again Wednesday, Aug. 13. There will be a fun of board game night along with game shows and the chance to play with makey makeys.
