Chance to meet Albertan literary talent comes to library

International Games Day was a success at the Stettler Public Library on Saturday, November 15.

Stettler Public Library News

International Games Day was a success at the Stettler Public Library on Saturday, November 15. There were 50 participants playing intently at computers, gaming consoles and board games throughout the library. Keep watching, because we have had requests for a repeat of this event.

We do have a hold-over from International Games Day: Minecraft. Minecraft is installed on all of our public computers. This way you can play this game all year round.

Have you ever read any books by the wonderful authors found in our province? Until the end of November, the Stettler Public Library has a display highlighting Alberta talent. Let me give you a taste of a couple of titles that can be found there.

The Grads are Playing Tonight by M. Ann Hall is the story of the Edmonton Commercial Graduates Basketball Club. This is an amazing story about the history of one of the greatest women’s basketball teams Canada has ever seen: they played over 400 official games and lost only 20.

Seen Reading by Julie Wilson is a collection of more than one hundred micro-stories inspired by glimpses of people reading on Toronto transit.

Come in and check out the other great books on the display. You will not be disappointed.

We have some fantastic events coming up in the next week:

Bring your technology questions for Tech Time for Seniors on Thursday, Nov. 20 at 1 p.m. for some one-on-one tech help.

It is time to gear up for winter with Read and Rhyme on Friday, Nov. 21 at 10:30 a.m. We will have crafts and fun for ages 0-5 and their big people. But don’t worry, everything will be finished in time for lunch at 12 p.m.

Do you love LEGO? Have you ever tried Snap Circuits? We are combining the two during Circuit Mania on Saturday, Nov. 22 at 1 p.m. Come and enjoy an afternoon of creating at the Stettler Public Library. Pre-register at 403-742-2292.

The Stettler Public Library is pleased to present Alf Erichsen, author of Lutheran Pioneers, on Tuesday Dec. 2 at 6:30 p.m. Alf will be talking about the history of Lutheran churches in the Stettler area. Everyone is welcome to get a glimpse into the history of our hometown.
