Art Club to meet on Sept. 12 with a focus on water-colour techniques

On Tuesday, between 4 and 6 p.m., join us to unleash your inner artist.

All good things must end, and the Summer Reading Program is no different. For the past week, we have been wrapping up the program with fun activities, great books, and an awesome performance by Mullen the Magician. Along with the conclusion of our program, this week also concluded our Read Across Canada challenge. Throughout the summer, kids have been handing in their reading minutes, and in the end, we amassed an impressive 37,695 minutes. With their dedication and hard work, we were able to get all the way across Canada and back again. We would like to offer our congratulations to our first, second, and third place readers, and to everyone who handed in their reading logs throughout the summer. We would also like to thank the businesses and individuals in the community who donated to the program or volunteered their time. Each donation went towards creating awesome summer programming for kids in and around the community, and we are incredibly grateful for each, and every contribution.

Hurry and get your passes for the Film Circuit movies starting Monday, Sept. 4 at 7 p.m. at the Jewel Theatre. That will be the last night in which you can purchase the passes for the first four movies or for the whole series. “Maudie” is going to be incredible.

With the school year upcoming, tutoring at the Stettler Public Library will be beginning again. Every Tuesday evening from 5 to 8 p.m., beginning on Sept. 5, meet with a certified math and science teacher to brush up on your skills.

If you want to unleash your inner artist, on Tuesday, Sept. 12 from 4 to 6 p.m. the Art Club will be meeting this time with a focus on water colour painting and techniques. This event is for ages seven and up and you must pre-register as there is limited space. For more information, or to register for this event, please contact the library.

Also beginning on Sept. 12 is Beginner Quilting with Jean Dyck. It’s a six-week workshop in which you learn to make a beautiful quilt from scratch. But you have to register early because there are only seven spots. Call the library at 403-742-2292 to register and receive the details on the supplies that you need. Don’t worry if you don’t have a sewing machine, as you can use one of the library’s.

As always, for the most updated information please check spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for news of any other neat events and activities.
