STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY NEWS
Winter is officially here if the snow from the weekend is any indication. Christmas may only be six weeks away but the Stettler Public Library isn’t ready to let the month of November go. We have great stuff planned that you really have to check out.
As there is no school on Wednesday, Nov.12, the Stettler Public Library will be showing the movie “Maleficent” at 1 p.m. See the other side of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale and enjoy some popcorn.
Join book loving teens for snacks and great conversation on Wednesday, Nov. 12 at 5:30 p.m. as Spine Crackers meet to discuss the pros and cons of the book “Unraveling” by Elizabeth Norris. This is a great way to spend the late afternoon with your friends.
Bring your WIP (work in progress) in the craft of your choice and join Chicks with Sticks on Wednesday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. Enjoy some wonderful advice and fantastic company as you finish your project.
Did you know that Saturday, Nov. 15 is International Games Day? It’s going to be so much fun and the library is going all in! Join us all day for gaming with Wii, Wii-U, PS4, and Xbox 360 systems, Minecraft, board games, and so much more. Board games and Minecraft stations will be set up in the children’s annex, games rated E or T can be played in the Rotary area, and games rated M will be restricted to the teen area of the library. Everyone is welcome.
Seniors looking for help with computers, tablets, e-readers or cell phones are welcome to the Library on Thursday, Nov. 20 for Tech Time for Seniors from 1 to 3 p.m. This will give you a chance to get some one-on-one help with that pesky technology. If needed, free Handibus rides to the library are available by calling 403-742-5858.
Gear up for winter with Read & Rhyme on Friday, Nov. 21 at 10:30 a.m. We will have crafts and fun for ages 0-5 and their big people. But don’t worry, everything will be finished in time for lunch at 12 p.m.
Do you love LEGO? Have you ever tried Snap Circuits? We are combining the two during Circuit Mania on Saturday, Nov. 22 at 1 p.m. Create a light to set your LEGO creation aglow. Set up the speaker so that your LEGO house makes creaks and groans. Come and enjoy an afternoon of creating at the Stettler Public Library.
The Stettler Public Library will be closing on Thursday, Nov. 13 at 5:30 p.m. for our staff Christmas party. We will reopen at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 14. Have a great evening everyone.
