Girls’ Night Teen Edition set for Stettler Public Library on Dec. 10

Girls’ Night: Teen Edition becomes a reality at the Stettler Public Library on Friday, Dec. 10 from 7 to 9 p.m. For young women ages 12 to 18, this is a night to embrace everything girly by trying yoga, getting your eyebrows waxed, having the girls fitted and a whole bunch more. Some guests will be charging a nominal fee for some of the services provided. There is also a makeup application try-out but there is a limited number of girls that can participate, and there is a fee for the trial. If you are interested, please call the library at 403-742-2292 to register.

Christmas is only 17 days away and I am sure that you are planning how to keep everybody from being bored during the holidays. Well, the Stettler Public Library can help in your holiday schedule.

During the kids’ Christmas break, the library will be holding special holiday activities to keep the children entertained during the long break. Join us on Dec. 20, 21, 22, and Dec. 29 from 1 to 3 p.m. for crafts, games and activities. Each day will have a special theme such as the holiday and science. Watch this column for more details.

Is your house going to be full of family members of all ages over the holiday? Does Uncle Bernie only read books about tractors? Is little Sally going through a Dora the Explorer phase and you don’t have anything like that in the house? Call the Stettler Public Library at 403-742-2292 and have the staff gather a “GO! Bag Survival Kit”. Let us know what sorts of the things interest your extended family and we will have a GO! Bag ready for pick-up by noon the next day.

Are you scared about how much your power bill is going to go up after all the electronics that the family received at Christmas? Thanks to Fortis Alberta, you can now sign out a power monitor at your local library (Stettler, Donalda and Big Valley). The power monitor can be signed out for a three week period like most library items and it will help you better understand your electricity consumption and costs by projecting how much electricity and the cost for one month of running a certain appliance. If you are interested in signing out the power monitor, just ask the library staff.

Literacy Alberta is celebrating over 22 years of encouraging families to practice their literacy skills and to have fun doing it. To celebrate Literacy Alberta, Stettler Adult Learning is holding a YouTube contest with the help of our very own Shaunzy. All you have to do is produce a YouTube video based on the theme of “Reading Comes to Life”. Open to the residents of the Town and County of Stettler, your YouTube video could win you a $50 Future Shop gift card and your video will be posted on Stettler Adult Learning’s website. Once you have produced your filmmaking masterpiece, you can upload it directly onto www.youtube.com by logging as SALearning (password: 123learning). If you have any questions about uploading your video, call 403-741-9857.

The Stettler Public Library’s Giving Tree is up and ready to receive any unwrapped gifts for the Stettler Christmas Hamper Society. Unwrapped gifts can be dropped off until the middle of December. Help us make this our best Giving Tree ever.

The library’s holiday hours have been confirmed. The Stettler Public Library will be closing at 6 p.m. on the evening of Dec. 23 and will reopen at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 28. We will also be closed on Saturday, Jan. 1 to celebrate the New Year.
