STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — The new year 2017 is officially here and the Stettler Public Library is looking forward to a great year serving our community. We have so many services that we can offer you. Why don’t you come in and take a look? We are more than willing to help you with any inquiries that you may have.

Here is another reason for you to check out the Stettler Public Library: As of Jan. 1, 2017 a membership at the Library is completely free. Yes, you will be able to access the entire collection of the Library plus the rest of Alberta’s library collections for free! You also have access the Parkland Regional Library’s e-content like Cloud Library and Zinio. However, you don’t need a membership to enjoy our library programs. But really why wouldn’t you get a membership because it is the best deal in the town and county.

S.T.E.A.M. Saturdays return in 2017 with a chance to create a free standing picture frame with nothing but popsicles. This will be on Saturday, Jan. 7 at 10:30 a.m. and is geared for ages five and up.

Afterschool with Darlene explores Northern Lights and other Delights on Thursday, Jan. 12 at 3:30 p.m. The kids will be enjoying the story “Once Upon a Northern Night” and then making their own Aurora Borealis!

Saturday, Jan. 14 is jam packed with so many things going on that you will have to pick and choose which event that you will want to come from. We start off with our monthly Pokemon Swap Meet from 10:30 a.m. to noon. We follow that up with making a duct-tape Chapstick holder at 12:30 p.m. This is for ages 10 and up but younger children may attend if accompanied by an adult.

If you want to try something new in 2017 why don’t you try either Crystal’s Crochet Club or the Cookbook Club? If working with yarn is something that you want to give a go, join Crystal on Saturday January 14 at 1:30 pm. Join us for some tips, tutoring and talk on the art of crocheting.

But if food is something that you can really get behind, join the Cookbook Club on Monday, Jan. 16 at 6:30 p.m. This month’s theme is Ukrainian Christmas and Chinese New Year. New members are always welcome. Call 403-742-2292 for more details.

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!
