Alberta Arts Days is a three-day celebration of Alberta’s arts and culture. Sept. 18-20, communities across Alberta will be humming with creative energy. From classrooms to concert halls, from libraries to choir lofts and sidewalks to studios, Albertans everywhere will bring the very spirit of Alberta to life and the Stettler Public Library is right in the middle of it.

The Stettler Public Library is pleased and honoured to be displaying the art of Sean Penner. Sean is a talented local sculptor whose work has been seen at local art shows and we are excited to introduce his work to more people in the community. His art will be on display until the end of September.

Also on display at the library is the visual art display entitled Darkfire. Inspired by Dante’s Inferno, Darkfire is a collaborative initiative between University of Alberta Professors Sean Caulfield, Jonathan Hart and Susan Colberg. This unbound artists’ book consists of ten prints by Caulfield accompanied by ten poems written by Hart. The book, designed by Colberg, includes a title page, the ten image/poem pairings and a colophon all housed in a portfolio case. In 2008, a copy of the book was purchased by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts. The Darkfire prints and text panels were then framed for travel with the TREX (Traveling Art Exhibition) program. The Stettler Public Library is the first place in which this exhibit is being displayed as part of the TREX program. It is only here until Sept. 28, but don’t be discouraged if you miss it now. It will be back for the entire month of July in 2010.

Are you a local artist who would like a place to display your art? Contact the Stettler Public Library at 403-742-2292. We would love to hold an exhibition for you. Remember that we are more than books.

Story Time returns on Saturdays at 11:15 a.m. It is open to everybody ages 3 and up. There will be stories, songs, and crafts. I love Story Time, maybe because I lead it and I have so much fun with the kids and the stories. I guess that I am just a big kid at heart.

Rhyming Kids returns on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 10:30 a.m. It is open to all parents and guardians with children ages newborn and up. Join Alicia for songs, rhymes, stories and play. This is a drop-in program and everybody is welcome.

Bedtime Stories continue on from the summer on Thursdays starting Sept. 17 at 7 p.m. This is a half hour program of stories, rhymes, and songs to lull your little ones to sleep. Everybody is invited to bring their favourite teddy bears and come dressed in their pjs. Believe, I will.

The Stettler Public Library and the Friends of the Library are pleased to announce the 1st Annual Friends of the Library Giant Book Sale. It is being held in the Conference Room at the Stettler Recreation Centre on Friday, Oct. 2, from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 3, from 10 a.m.to 3 p.m.

You can buy a pile of books for $1.00 a foot or buy a book bag and fill it for $5.00. Gently used donations will be accepted but no encyclopedia sets please.
