‘Feed the Birds Day’ on Feb. 3

Join us next Monday, Feb. 6 at the Jewel Theatre at 7 p.m. for the three-time Oscar nominated 'Manchester by the Sea.'

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — Have you seen that the Stettler Film Circuit is showing an Oscar-nominated movie on Monday, Feb. 6? Join us at the Jewel Theatre at 7 p.m. for the three-time Oscar nominated “Manchester by the Sea” starring Golden Globe winner Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams. After the death of his older brother, Lee is shocked to learn that he is the sole guardian of his nephew. Taking leave of his job, he reluctantly returns to his hometown to care for his nephew and is forced to deal with a past that separated him from his wife. Bring your friends and tell everyone that you know about this movie because this is going to be great!

Do your kids need something to do during their school break? Well, the Stettler Public Library has a solution for you. Join us on Friday, Feb. 3 for two wonderful programs. Do you like electricity but you don’t know exactly how it works? Join us from 10:30 a.m. to noon for Snap Circuits, a fun way to learn about electricity.

We are going to follow that up with Feed the Birds Day at 2 p.m. We are going to create a treat for our feathered friends in celebration of Feed the Birds Day. No registration is required for either program and they are open to everyone.

If you can’t make it on Friday, we have a tonne going on the next day, Saturday, Feb. 4. Saturday’s activities all involve food so you will really want to join in. We will start off with our STEAM Saturdays and we are going to have Ice Cream for Breakfast. Yes, I said “Ice cream for breakfast.” Join us at 10:30 a.m. when we will make ice cream and eat it too!

We will follow that up from a 2 to 4 p.m. session with our Kids’ Cooking Club. The kids will be learning to make delicious carrot cake. You must pre-register for this event so contact the library at 403-742-2292. Space is limited so you must contact us as soon as possible.

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. We hope to see you at the library soon.
