A new filing system introduced at Stettler Public Library to make it easier to locate resources

Stettler Public Library is at it again. We have made some minor changes to where you can currently find items in our collection. During our most recent Project Saturday, the staff inter-filed the audiobooks in with the adult, junior and young adult fiction collections as well as the nonfiction collection. That means that when you want a Louis L’amour audiobook, you will find them with the books also written by Louis L’amour. Remember that if you need any assistance at all, the staff is always available to help you find what you are looking for.

Did you know that Read and Rhyme Playtime comes to Erskine and Byemoor once a month? Alicia visits the Erskine Weaverly Club Rooms on the first Monday of the month and the Byemoor Drop-in Centre on the second Monday. The start time is 10:30 a.m. for both Mondays. October sees a small change in date for the Byemoor session. Instead of the second Monday, which is Thanksgiving, Alicia will be meeting on the third Monday. Children of ages up to four are welcome with their big people to have some fun.

Do you know of anybody that could use some assistance in learning English? Join us for ESL Icebreaker Night on Wednesdays from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. It is an informal gathering in which English becomes a fun language. Everybody is welcome and families are encouraged to come.

Are you looking for a deal? I know that you will be able to find a tonne of deals at the Friends of the Stettler Public Library’s annual giant book sale. Remember to mark Friday, Nov. 5 from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on your calendars. Come and check out the wide array of books for sale.

Friday, Oct. 1 at 7 p.m.is the Stettler Public Library’s first Girls’ Night. Come for a bra fitting and try a little yoga. You can also get your eyebrows waxed and make a card. How about trying some kettlebells or belly dancing? Some of the activities may have a nominal fee.

Also in October, the Stettler Public Library is hosting a scrapbook retreat. Friday, Oct. 15 to Sunday, Oct. 17, come to the Stettler Public Library and scrapbook away. There is a registration fee for participation, which will include lunches and suppers. Spots are limited so register early. Call us at 403-742-2292 for more information or to register.

There will be no Storytime on the following days: Sept. 25th, Oct. 9, and Oct. 23. The library will also be closed on the following days: Monday, Oct. 12 for Thanksgiving and Monday, Oct. 25 for a professional development day.
