Stettler Public Library

The month of January is almost over. There are only a couple of days left but the Stettler Public Library has a couple of events on Jan. 30 to keep the whole family busy.

Library members and invited guests are welcome to join us at the Stettler Public Library on Friday, Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. for “liqueur tasting”. Sheryl Hadwell from the 59 Street Liquor Store will be providing the evening’s tasty libations. You will be able to sample Laura Secord Chocolate Liqueur, Bailey’s Chocolate Cherry, Rumchatta, Stolichnaya Salted Karmel Vodka, Philips Apple Pie Liqueur and Lochan Ora Scotch liqueur. Tickets are $10 each and available at the Stettler Public Library.

Friday Jan. 30 is a PD Day in Stettler and the library has got the afternoon covered with entertainment to keep the kids busy. At 1 p.m., we are pleased to present the movie “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” followed by “The Book of Life” at 2:45 p.m. Both movies are rated PG and we will have popcorn.

On Thursday, Feb. 5, the library is pleased to present local author Lavera Goodeye at 3 p.m. Lavera will be talking about her memoir book “Seven to Seventy.” Join us for coffee and snacks as we learn about this woman’s amazing life. Remember that you can book the Handibus free of charge to attend this event. Call the Handibus at 403-742-5858 to book your ride and tell them you are going to the library.

Books are available for both of the library’s book clubs. Readers’ Circle will be discussing “The Word Exchange” by Alena Graedon on Thursday, Feb. 5 at 7:30 p.m. Spine Crackers will be tossing around the pros and cons of “Proxy” by Alex London on Thursday, Feb. 12 at 5:30 p.m. New members are always welcome to drop in on both groups.

The whole family is invited to join us on Saturday, Feb. 7 at 10:30 a.m. for some Valentine’s Day fun. We will be making valentine crafts, watching the movie “The Boxtrolls” and enjoying a special Valentine’s Day treat.

Do you have a horror of Valentine’s Day? Join us on Friday, Feb 13 at 6:30 p.m. to work out your angst. We’ll be showing the Valentine’s classic “Friday the 13th,” putting on our eating pants for unromantic snacks, and breaking a heart (-shaped piñata). The movie is rated R.

If you and your children enjoyed our Read and Rhyme Unbirthday Party, you must join us Friday, Feb. 20 at 10:30 a.m. for A Read & Rhyme Teddy Bear Picnic for ages 0-5.
