Friends of the Library’s Annual Giant Book Sale to be hosted next month

With Stettler’s Film Circuit about to come to its spring finale, I want to talk to you about movies and how the library can help you.

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — With Stettler’s Film Circuit about to come to its spring finale until fall, I want to talk to you about movies and the Stettler Public Library. It is one of the great perks of your library membership, which is free by the way.

If you have missed a movie that is part of our Film Circuit, check with us at the Stettler Public Library. We endeavour to add each movie that has been shown at the Jewel Theatre to our collection. If there is one you have missed or would like to see again we probably have it in the collection. Also our DVD collection contains most of the popular televsion shows that you may be watching such as “Game of Thrones,” “The Walking Dead,” “Where Calls the Heart” and many more. And if we don’t have what you are looking for, just ask to see if we can find it anywhere in Alberta.

Our last movie for this season’s Film Circuit is the British film “I, Daniel Blake”. Daniel Blake (59) has worked as a joiner most of his life in Newcastle. Now, for the first time ever, he needs help from the State. He crosses paths with a single mother Katie and her two young children, Daisy and Dylan. Katie’s only chance to escape a one-roomed homeless hostel in London has been to accept a flat in a city she doesn’t know, some 300 miles away. Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man’s land, caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy as played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern day Britain. This winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival will be shown at the Jewel Theatre on Monday, April 3 at 7 p.m.

We are a month away until the Friends of the Library’s Annual Giant Book Sale. Join us on Friday, April 7 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, April 8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to stock up your bookshelves with classics and great reads. If you have any classics or great reads that you would like to donate to our book sale, we are now taking gently read donations. No textbooks or encyclopedias please.

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.
