Come to the Stettler Recreation Centre for all your small repairs

Repair Café is Saturday, Sept. 30 from 1 to 5 p.m.

First off, I have to apologize for a mistake that I made in last week’s Library News. The Repair Café at the Stettler Recreation Centre is this Saturday Sept. 30 from 1 to 5 p.m., and it wasn’t on Sept. 20, as I had stated. That means that you didn’t miss it! If you have anything that needs to be repaired, come and see the experts that can help you with these small repairs. You are welcome to use the library’s sewing machines for small mending repairs and Shaun will be here to help you convert your old photos and slides to a digital format.

Also on Saturday, Sept. 30 is the Teen Cooking Club at 2 p.m. Open to hungry kids of ages 12 and up, those busy but ravenous kids will learn to make a delicious and simple afterschool snack. Please pre-register by calling the library at 403-742-2292 by Friday, Sept. 29 so we can have the right amount of ingredients for everyone.

Don’t forget that our next TIFF Film Circuit movie is on Monday, Oct. 2 at the Jewel Theatre, showing at 7 p.m. Come and join us for the romantic comedy “The Big Sick.” Pakistan-born comedian Kumail Nanjiani and grad student Emily Gardner fall in love, but struggle as their cultures clash. When Emily contracts a mysterious illness, Kumail finds himself forced to face her feisty parents, his family’s expectations, and his true feelings. Tickets are $10 at the door.

Discover your roots and explore your family tree with the Stettler Genealogy Club on Thursday, Oct. 5 at 6:30 p.m. at the Stettler Public Library. All researchers various experience levels are welcome to attend. For further information, contact David Guba at 403-742-8369 or

Keep the night of Friday, Oct. 27 open for all the little ghosts, goblins, princesses, and superheroes. The 5th annual Monster Bash is back to give the kids a safe and fun night celebrating Halloween. Join us for games, food, crafts, and prizes. There is a cost for this event: $10 per child or $25 per family, all adults get to attend for free. Watch for more details in the weeks and days to come.

Read and Rhyme is definitely a program that will put a smile on your face. Join Lindsey on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 10:30 a.m. for rhymes, songs, games, and crafts for ages zero to five. We have also added Baby Rhyme Time on Mondays and Wednesdays for ages 0 to 12 months at 10:30 a.m. Both programs are drop-in and are so much fun! So little people start dragging your big people to the library for a morning of songs and giggles.

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