Stettler Public Library News

The Monster Bash was a roaring success and we have had a couple of days to recoup. November is now here and we have a wonderful month ahead of us at the Stettler Public Library.

Our book clubs are gearing up for November with some fantastic picks. Reader’s Circle is gathering on Thursday, Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m. to discuss “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” by Laini Taylor. Spine Crackers has made a small change to their meeting date to discuss “Unraveling” by Elizabeth Norris. Join Rebecca and the group on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 5:30 p.m. If you are not sure whether either book club is right for you, you are welcome to join us without having read the book to get an idea of how things generally go. We are always looking for new members and ideas.

As there is no school on Tuesday, on Nov. 12, the Stettler Public Library is pleased to present the movie “Maleficent” at 1 pm. See the other side of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale and enjoy some popcorn.

Bring your WIP (work in progress) in the craft of your choice and join Chicks with Sticks on Wednesday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. Enjoy some wonderful advice and fantastic company as you finish your project.

Did you know that Saturday, Nov. 15 is International Games Day? It’s gonna be so much fun and the library is going all in. Join us all day for gaming with Wii, Wii-U, PS4, and Xbox 360 systems, Minecraft, board games, and so much more. Board games and Minecraft stations will be set up in the children’s annex, games rated E or T can be played in the Rotary area, and games rated M will be restricted to the teen area of the library. Everyone is welcome.

Seniors looking for help with computers, tablets, eReaders or cell phones are welcome to the library on Thursday, Nov. 20 for Tech Time for Seniors from 1 to 3 p.m. This will give you a chance to get some one-on-one help with that pesky technology. If needed, free Handibus rides to the library are available by calling 403-742-5858.

Gear up for winter with Read & 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 noon.

The Stettler Public Library will be closed on Tuesday, November 11 for Remembrance Day to honour brave Canadians who have sacrificed their lives in armed conflicts.
