Busy Friday this week at library

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY -- This summer has been moving faster than ever, with August approaching fast!

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — This summer has been moving faster than ever, with August approaching fast! The Summer Reading Program continues to be a fun-filled experience for kids of all ages. Thank you again to those businesses providing many of our materials; your support is greatly appreciated by all.

Just a quick reminder that there are fun sessions available at the library for ages six to eight, nine to 12 and 13+. Join us for Gardening, the Teen Cooking Club, and Make and Create, where we explore many different activities with all ages. On Fridays, we have an all-ages-included family event as well. For more information on any of the programs, check the weekly and daily schedules posted on our Facebook page, or stop in at the library. Our goal is to have fun, and build literacy and other skills in preparation for the fall.

This Friday, July 29, from 2 to 4 p.m. we will be having a virtual dinosaur event. Join us to learn more about dinosaurs with our friends at the Royal Tyrell Museum! All ages are welcome for this fun-filled family activity. We encourage pre-registration though, as there is a limit on the number of participants.

Ready to perform? Show off your unique talents at our Talent Show on Aug. 12 All ages and acts are welcome – and all participants will receive a prize. Please register your act by Thursday, Aug. 11 at the Stettler Public Library, or phone us at 403-742-2292.

Fridays are also for Read and Rhyme. Join us to sing songs and learn new rhymes together.

We hope you will join us for our special event this Friday, July 29 at the Stettler Town and Country Museum for an awesome tour complete with snacks and songs. This event will begin at 10:30 a.m.

Dying to learn more about your phone, tablet, e-reader, or computer? Visit the library for Tech Time. Held twice a month, you can receive one-on-one assistance with your electronic device of choice on Thursday, Aug. 4 or Thursday, Aug. 18 from 1 to 3 p.m.

Cookbooks are now available for next month’s Cookbook Club. The theme for the month is Books from Blogs. I have looked at the cookbooks and there are some yummy looking recipes in them. Join us on Monday, Aug. 15 at 6:30 p.m. for a wonderful potluck. For more information contact us at spl@prl.ab.ca.

Additional activities may require pre-registration, so keep checking spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for more fun and learning going on at the library. Have an idea for something you want to do or see at the library? Feel free to let us know. We hope to see you soon.
