LITERALLY YOURS

Good day, fellow citizens of Stettler!

Calgary-based author Betty Jane Hegerat’s visit to the library was a huge hit. Her book The Boy, a novel based on the story of the infamous Albertan, Robert Raymond Cook, attracted fifty-two people from all over central Alberta to hear about the book and discuss their memories of the Cook trial. If you’re interested in reading The Boy, give us a call or come in to request it, as it is in high demand right now!

The library is planning a One Book, One Stettler event to promote community reading. This Stettler-wide book club will celebrate The Boy and give everyone in the community the opportunity to discuss the book. Watch for more news about this book club.

The summer reading program starts on July 4th, and everyone is more than welcome to drop in for any of our free activities. A schedule of the activities and events can be found at our website on our ‘kids’ or ‘teens’ pages. It can also be seen in giant form outside of the library on the bulletin board. We’re getting stoked about the first week of the program, and hope you all are too!

Another exciting event to look forward to is the visit of Donna Durand, a well-established folk and roots singer from Red Deer. She will be performing live music in the library on July 15 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. Everyone is welcome to attend. If you would like to hear some of her music or learn more about her go to http://www.reverbnation.com/donnadurand.

Summer Movie Madness starts on July 5. Every Tuesday all summer we are hosting a fun family movie night. Bring your own snacks and join us at the library from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. The first movie will be Ramona and Beezus staring Selena Gomez.

And finally, don’t forget that our Royal Tea is tomorrow! Join us for fascinator-making, gossip, tea, and crumpets, as well a game of library croquet. Drop by anytime between 6:00pm and 8:00pm.
