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.
