Donate food at Stettler library and have your fine reduced throughout October

We have reclaimed the bulletin board right outside the doors of the Stettler Public Library.

We want you to see what is happening at the Stettler Public Library, not just hear about it. There are flashy posters to catch your eye and postcards of the posters that you can take home and put on your fridge.

Here are a few of the events that you will find on our bulletin board:

To celebrate Canadian Library Month, the Stettler Public Library is offering Food for Fines for the month of October. For every canned item that you bring in for the Stettler Food Bank, $1.00 of your fines with be forgiven. For larger items such as cereal, it will be at the staffs’ discretion to decide on the amount to be waived.

We are pleased tohave a Community Access Program Youth Intern on staff until March. If you need help with anything technical such as an iPod, Facebook or e-mail, Shaun Ross is the man to see. Contact the Library at 403-742-2292 for times or to set up a one-on-one appointment with Shaun.

The after-school program is back every Thursday starting October 14 from 4 to 5 p.m. School-aged children can join Crystal and Lindsey for an hour of books, stories, games and crafts. What a great way to spend the time waiting for your brother or sister to get off the ice or out of the pool.

Do you love to scrapbook? Join our Scrapbooking Retreat from Friday, Oct. 15 to Sunday, Oct. 17. We will supply the tables and the space, you bring your projects. The times are Friday from 5 p.m. to midnight, Saturday from 10 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m..

Fear Factor Feed Off is back to entertain and gross-out the teens. Join us on Oct. 30 at 3 p.m. for veins and blood clots, eyeballs in pus, brain, festering zits and more. It is everything that a teen loves to eat on Halloween.

For the little ones, join us for a special Storytime on Saturday, Oct. 30 at 11 a.m. There will be ghost stories, crafts and a few treats. Remember to wear your costume because it isn’t every day that the library can be visited by ghosts, goblins, princesses and other special guests.

We are currently accepting donations for the Stettler Friends of the Library annual giant book sale set for Nov. 5 and 6. Already there is a wide array of books and subjects to choose from that will make this our biggest book sale to date. Come and check out the bargains on Friday Nov. 5 from 1 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

There will be no Storytime on Saturday, Oct. 23 and the Stettler Public Library will be closed on Monday, Oct. 25 for professional development. Remember to put these dates on your calendar.

When you place your vote on Monday, Oct. 18 in the municipal election, remember the Stettler Public Library. Libraries are primarily funded by the municipalities in which they reside. A loss of support can lead to a loss of funding for your local library.
