Christmas spirit arrives at Library

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go. We're getting into the holiday spirit here at the Stettler Public Library.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go. We’re getting into the holiday spirit here at the Stettler Public Library. Check out the awesome programs in the month leading up to Christmas.

Do you have a film lover in your life? The Stettler Public Library, Jewel Theatre, and TIFF have a great gift idea for you. Why not buy a pass for the last four movies for this year’s Film Circuit season. We now have the season’s selections fleshed out and we are pleased to announce that Dec. 7 movie is “Brooklyn”; Jan. 4 selection is “Remember” starring Christopher Plummer and Martin Landau; Feb. 1 film stars Maggie Smith in “The Lady in the Van”; and our last selection for the season on Monday, March 7 is the Icelandic movie “Rams”. All showings start at 7 p.m. at the Jewel Theatre and passes can be purchased at the library or Jewel Theatre. This is your last chance to save on these fabulous international movies as the season passes will be no more after the December movie. You can also purchase individual tickets at the door.

There is a new perk to being a member of the Stettler Public Library. Thanks to support from the Stettler Regional Early Child Development Committee, you can borrow a one-week family pass to the Stettler Recreation Centre. It allows you to take the whole family swimming and try out the exercise facilities. This is a great way of using the community’s resources without too much risk.

Wednesdays from Nov. 25 to Dec. 16 are going to be a great time at the Stettler Public Library filled with ribbons, paint, glue and sparkles. Join us at 4 p.m. for Crafts ’til Christmas, a crafting program for kids. Make your gifts for teachers, parents, grandparents, and more.

We had so much fun last year that we decided to hold our second annual international holiday potluck on Wednesday, Dec. 2 from 6 to 8 p.m. Bring a favourite holiday dish and celebrate at the library. This is a great way to get to know your community and, really, who doesn’t like food. Everyone welcome.

We will be closing at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 9 for our staff Christmas party. We will reopen on Thursday, Dec. 10 at 10 a.m. for all your library needs.

Seeing that we are talking about library schedules, here are the library’s holiday hours. We will be closing at 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve and we will reopen on Monday, Dec. 28 at 10 am. We’ll then be closing at 4 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and we’ll reopen in 2016 on Saturday, Jan. 2 for our regular hours.

Keep an eye out for additional activities on our website ( and Facebook page! And if you have an activity you’d like to do/see at the library feel free to approach us.
