STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY -- The last week of the summer has arrived at the library and it's amazing how quickly the time passes by.

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — The last week of the summer has arrived at the library and it’s amazing how quickly the time passes by. We’ve had really a lot of fun and incredible experiences with kids of all ages attending the summer reading program activities and we’re very sad to see them go. We wish all of you well in the new school year and hope that you will continue to improve your reading skills and have fun. The Stettler Public Library hopes to see you all throughout the school year and again next summer for some more great times.

For more information on any of the programs happening at the library, feel free to visit our Facebook page where you can find postings about our programs or stop in and see us at the library. Our goal is to continue to build literary and social skills, as well as fun in this final week before starting the 2016/17 school year.

Have you got the quilting fever? Wanting to learn new skills? Come to the Stettler Public Library every Tuesday from Sept. 6 to Oct. 11 from 6 to 8 p.m. Jean Dyck will be returning to teach you how to make a beautiful quilt from scratch. Please call the library to receive a list of needed supplies and to register for this amazing program; maximum of six people.

The Film Circuit is returning with eight movies for this season. It starts on Monday, Sept. 5 at 7 p.m. at our beloved Jewel Theatre. We’re kick-starting the season with “Sing Street,” the story of 14-year-old boy looking for a break from his troubled school and home life in 1980s Dublin. Sing Street shows us a world where music has the power to take us away from the turmoil of everyday life and transform us into something greater in an incredibly heartwarming and nostalgic journey. Passes to see all eight or only four of movies can be purchased. Singular tickets can be purchased at the Jewel Theatre the night of the film showing.

The next selection of cookbooks is available for the next installment of the Cookbook Club. We will be meeting on Monday, Sept. 19 at 6 p.m. while we let our taste buds try the delights of portable food for lunches. This is a great way to try out new ideas to liven up lunch time. New members are always welcome.

The library is pleased to announce that we will be participating in the Repair Café on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Stettler Recreation Centre. Learn do-it-yourself skills that will allow you to fix simple repairs yourself at this wonderful community event. We will be having our sewing machines available for those that have fabric items that need mending and a skilled volunteer to help you make those repairs.

Keep checking spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for news of any additional activities as some may require pre-registration. If you have any ideas, suggestions, or questions about activities you want to see at the library let us know.
