STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — There are only a few more days left in 2016 and the Stettler Public Library is grateful to the entire community for its support in this past year. The staff and board has enjoyed bringing you the services that keep you coming back. Why not make it a New Year’s Resolution that you will come visit us every week? We always have something going on! Just take a look at this.

Recover from New Year’s excitement by going to the movies. Join us at the Jewel Theatre on Monday, Jan. 2, 2017 at 7 p.m. when the Stettler Film Circuit presents “Two Lovers and a Bear.” Set in a small town near the North Pole where roads lead to nowhere, the story follows Roman (Dane DeHaan) and Lucy (Tatiana Maslany), two burning souls who come together to make a leap for life and inner peace. Plus you have Canadian legend Gordon Pinsent voicing the Bear. How can you go wrong? You can purchase a four-movie pass at the Stettler Public Library for $35. Or you can purchase a ticket at the Jewel Theatre’s box office the night of the movie for $10.

I’m sure adults have their plans figured out for New Year’s Eve: a night out, has the babysitter hired, hair done, shirt pressed, etc. Well the Stettler Public Library doesn’t want to leave the kids out. It starts with the New Year’s Eve Craft on Friday, Dec. 30 at 2 p.m. Come on in and make a party hat and a noise maker for the next day. Then join us on Saturday, Dec. 31 from 2 to 4 p.m. with the New Year’s Eve Dance Party. It’s time for the kids to ring in the New Year: complete with music and party snacks. Nothing says party like the Stettler Public Library says party.

The Stettler Public Library will be closing on New Year’s Eve at 4 p.m. Regular hours will then resume on Monday, Jan. 2, 2017 at 10 a.m.

Let’s get 2017 started with a Nerf War at the Library on Monday, Jan. 2. From 4 to 6 p.m. come in and design your team’s flag or a target or two. We follow that up with our guns drawn from 6 to 8 p.m. when the War begins. Bring your own loaded Nerf gun and eye protection and remember to mark your ammo with your initials so that nobody leaves without their Nerf gun fully loaded at the end of the night. Snacks will be served.

Keep checking spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for news of any additional activities as some may require pre-registration! If you have any ideas, suggestions, or questions about activities you want to see at the library, let us know. We hope to see you at the library soon!
