Book sale this weekend

It is time for our semi-annual Friends of the Library Giant Book Sale.

It is time for our semi-annual Friends of the Library Giant Book Sale on Friday, April 10 (10 a.m. to 7 p.m.) and Saturday, April 11 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) at the Stettler Public Library. Get to the library early to stock up your personal library shelves. But if you would rather weed your own collection, the library is accepting donations for the sale.

After you are done adding to your library at our book sale, come and visit our booth at the Stettler Regional Board of Trade Annual Trade Show. Meet with staff and board members and find out what new services are available at the Stettler Public Library. We would also love to hear any suggestions that you have. This is your public library and we love to have your input.

Do you have your tickets for Bubbles and Bling yet? There are only 10 days left to get them. What??? You don’t know about Bubbles and Bling? It is going to be a night of fun and pampering on Saturday, April 18 at 7 p.m. at the Stettler Public Library. Tickets are $30 in advance and can be purchased at the library or Wells Furniture. You will also be able to purchase the tickets at the door for $35 each. Your ticket gets you a free glass of champagne and is your chance to win a beautiful pair of diamond and amethyst earrings.

But Bubbles and Bling is more than just earrings and champagne. We will have a photo booth, two signature cocktails, flash tattoos, paraffin hand treatments and more. You will be able to mix and mingle with your friends while you get your eye makeup professionally applied, your eyebrows waxed, your nails painted and you make your own milk bath soak for later. I could go on but I’m sure that I have convinced you to come. Get your tickets today and treat yourself to a great evening out supporting the Stettler Public Library.

Chicks with Sticks is back on Wednesday April 8 at 6:30 p.m. Bring your craft projects and we will all work like little elves to get them done. It doesn’t matter what kind of craft that you do, just come and enjoy the company.

Do you need advice on apps? Have a new gadget or need general help with technology? Drop by the library for one-on-one assistance during Tech Time for Seniors on Tuesday, April 14 at 1 p.m.

Copies of “Chime” by Franny Billingsley are available at the Stettler Public Library for all those interested in joining our teen book club Spine Crackers. Join us on Wednesday, April 15 at 5:30 p.m. for snacks and a great discussion.

On Wednesday April 15, join Jeff and Carolyn Bondy to talk about daylilies. They’ll give you great advice on those stunning 24-hour blooms between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m.

Read & Rhyme is going to the Circus on Friday April 17 at 10:30 am. If you’re age 0-5, join us under the Big Top for ponies, dogs, balloon artists and more.

Are you age 10 or older and want to make beautiful music? Do you like Beethoven or is Jay-Z more your style? You can be a composer on Saturday, April 18. There’s a session at 10:30 a.m. and another at 1 p.m. with Little Bits–Synthesizer. Make wacky and wonderful music with our synthesizer kits. There is a maximum of six participants per session, so please pre-register at 403-742-2292.
