Creativity at work in library

Have you ever wanted to build something but you never had the materials or knowledge to do so? Well, look no further.

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — Have you ever wanted to build something but you never had the materials or knowledge to do so? Well, look no further. The fantastic Mark Fox will be at the library on Tuesdays at 3 p.m. He will be running the Make, Take, and Create drop-in program. This time is unscripted and ad hoc. Just show up and we’ll use the library’s tools and resources to help you flesh out your ideas and possibly hook you up with local talent that can help you make your idea a reality or help you explore an interest. All ages welcome. What do you wanna build?

Remember those gaming laptops from last week? They are still here, calling to you. They are full of pre-loaded games, just waiting to be played. So come on in to the library and use them before it’s too late, they head home on Jan. 13.

You can do so much with your fingers. You can text, poke a cat, get clawed by said cat, and much more, but did you ever think you could make a blanket with your fingers? On Saturday, Jan. 16 at 10:30 a.m. our resident gem Crystal will be teaching anyone and everyone how to crochet with nothing but your fingers… and yarn. Bring your own yarn.

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