Don’t miss ‘Dark Winter Polar Nights’ at Stettler Public Library

International Holiday Potluck coming on Dec. 6

by Crystal Friars

It is a month before Christmas and the Library is a tither with everything that people can find to do during the cold winter months. Yes, it is still technically autumn but once snow is on the ground it is winter. We have so much planned for the next month that everyone will be kept busy.

After School with Darlene is celebrating Dark Winter Polar Nights on Thursday November 23 at 3:30 p.m. Have a fun time listening to the wonderful story “Curious George Builds An Igloo” and then build your own igloo!

The kids are out of school on Friday November 24 for Professional Development Day and we have just the activity to keep them occupied. From 1 to 3 p.m., the kids can make Locker Magnets that will personalize your locker or save them for a Christmas gift for a friend. A creative way to spend the afternoon.

One of our most popular items in our collection is the Star Wars Battlefront game that we have for the PS4. The kids play it all the time! And now we are adding Star Wars Battlefront II to PS4 collection! To celebrate this wondrous acquisition, we are have a Star Wars Battlefront II launch party on Saturday November 25 starting at 12 noon. To get in on the fun, we ask that you pre-register by calling the Library at 403-742-2292. May the Force be with you!

Our last Film Circuit movie before Christmas will be showing at the Jewel Theatre on Monday December 4 at 7 pm. 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. This event is presented in conjunction with the Stettler Adult Learning Council.
