Celebratory week at Stettler library

It’s been an exciting past week at the Stettler Public Library.

It’s been an exciting past week at the Stettler Public Library. Jason Chapman came and gave us a look at “following your dreams,” even the impossible ones.

We welcomed Carly to our staff as one of our summer reading programmers. Travis led a very successful science day with lots of “oohs” and “ahhs” from the kids in attendance.

We also revelled with our staff members who celebrated their graduation: Jordan Dryden, Lindsey Gelech and Ashley Smyth. You have made us all proud.

And last but not least, a staff member celebrated Towel Day on Friday. I never knew that it really existed, but our Towel Day celebrant is a fountain of knowledge.

This Thursday night at 6:30, the Stettler library will show one of my favourite movies of all time: “Babe.” In it, a young pig fights convention to become a sheep dog or, rather, a sheep pig. This Australian film is charming and has a family-friendly G rating. Bring the whole family, some snacks and drinks and enjoy this heart-warming movie.

The province of Alberta has designated June 4 to 10 as Seniors’ Week. The Stettler library has planned some events for the seniors in our community.

On Tuesday, June 5, at 10:30 am, RCMP Const. Glen Gabruch will talk about fraud prevention for seniors at Paragon Place. The public is welcome to take in this informative session.

On Friday, June 8, at 3 p.m. at the library, you will learn that Age is Just a Number with Robin Schwartz. Robin is a personal trainer who has experience in helping seniors reach their fitness goals.
