Create a wonderful ornament at public library for someone special

Baking Swap coming up in December at public library

Submitted by Crystal Friars Stettler Public Library

December is here! December is here! The final month of the year is jammed full of activities to help chase away the winter blues and to get everyone into the Christmas spirit.

The month starts with a Perler Bead Christmas on Friday December 1 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Create a wonderful ornament for that someone special.

Our last Film Circuit movie before Christmas will be showing at the Jewel Theatre on Monday December 4 at 7 p.m. Tulip Fever is a 2017 historical drama film directed by Justin Chadwick and written by Tom Stoppard, adapted from a novel by Deborah Moggach. It stars Alicia Vikander, Dane DeHaan, Jack O’Connell, Zach Galifianakis, Judi Dench, Christoph Waltz, Holliday Grainger, Matthew Morrison and Cara Delevingne. The plot follows a 17th-century painter in Amsterdam who falls in love with a married woman whose portrait he has been hired to paint. The Film Circuit will return with a new group of four movies (TBA) on Monday January 8.

Our most popular Christmas event is back on Wednesday December 6. Bring foods or a dish inspired by your culture and join us for the International Holiday Potluck from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Come and meet newcomers to our community and enjoy some exotic and yummy goodness from around the world. We are also pleased to announce the Gracenotes Choir will be entertaining us for the evening. This event is presented in conjunction with the Stettler Adult Learning Council.

December 7 is a busy day at the Stettler Public Library. Join After School with Darlene for Trees and Trimming at 3:30 p.m. Enjoy the story “The Christmas Cobwebs” and create the animal that everyone thinks of at Christmas: a spider.

Then at 6 p.m. the Kids Cooking Club will be taking on our annual Christmas House Building Challenge. Make and decorate your own Christmas house. Spots are limited so please pre-register by calling the Library at 403-742-2292. If you miss this night, we will be running it again on Wednesday December 13th at 6 p.m.

This is the best time to join our Cookbook Club! Join us on Monday December 11 at 6:30 p.m. for a Baking Swap. Bring your favourite Christmas baking and swap with other members to create a fabulous treat tray! New members are always welcome!
