It has been a fantastic summer and we are eagerly anticipating the two remaining weeks of Summer Reading Club programming. As people leave or return from vacationing, we, here at the Stettler Public Library, encourage everyone to keep reading, experimenting, tinkering, and creating.

This week, we are doing that through exciting crafts and activities with the theme of “Spectacular Science.” Don’t forget to report any reading you have done over the summer for a chance to win awesome prizes.

Here is what is happening at the library: If you are a teen who thinks you would rock as a game show contestant, then visit the library on Wednesday, Aug. 13 for your chance to prove it. Teen Game Show Night will feature classic games like Jeopardy and Family Feud. There will be prizes presented at the end of the evening as well as an incredible snack to munch on.

If you have a basement to clear out or simply want more space on your shelves, the library is accepting donations for our book sale until Wednesday afternoon.

The Friends of the Library Summertime Book Sale is this week. Come find a fantastic book and support the library at the same time. The sale will run Wednesday Aug. 13 (4 – 8 p.m.), Thursday August 14 (10 a.m.– 8 p.m.), and Friday August 15 (10 a.m.– 4 p.m.).

Friday, Aug. 15 features “Frozen” (PG) and related activities between 2 and 4 p.m. We will be creating crafts, doing activities, and eating snacks based on Disney’s immensely popular hit movie which will be shown as part of the event. There will also be a prize draw and each participant will get their own snowman soup mix. Please pre-register for this event via email, Facebook, phone, or in person so that enough supplies can be obtained.

Read and Rhyme is every Wednesday starting at 11 a.m. and this week, there is a Friday special event as well. On Friday, Aug. 15 starting at 10 a.m., Read and Rhyme is invited to come to the Fire Station for an awesome tour.

On Monday, Aug. 18 at 2 p.m., we’ll be showing our last movie matinee “The Pagemaster” (G). It is an entertaining, funny, and charming tale that all audiences will enjoy.

On Wednesday, Aug. 20, from 6 – 8 p.m. , teens will be having sundaes to celebrate a great TD Summer Reading Program. There will be mini-golf with a few premade holes, but you will also have the chance to create your own.

As always, on Mondays and Fridays, there’s Reading Buddies at 10 a.m. and Gargantuan Gardening at 11 a.m.
