STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — The summer has been so much fun so far. We have had both the Monkeys and Lions read enough to earn an ice cream party. Congratulations to all of the participants and keep reading.

Just a quick reminder that there are fun sessions available at the library for ages 6-8, 9-12, and 13+. Join us for Gardening, the Teen Cooking Club, and Make and Create, where we explore many different activities with all ages. On Fridays, we have an all-ages-included family event as well. For more information on any of the programs, check the weekly and daily schedules posted on our Facebook page, or stop in at the library. Our goal is to have fun, and build literacy and other skills in preparation for the fall.

This week, we have so many fun things planned, such as exploring electronics with Little Bits and super fun games that will knock your socks off.

Do you juggle? How about ride a unicycle? Are you ready to perform? Show off your unique talents at our Talent Show on this Friday, Aug. 12 at 2 p.m. All ages and acts are welcome – and all participants with receive a prize! Please register your act by Thursday, Aug. 11 at the Stettler Public Library, or phone us at 403-742-2292.

Cookbooks are now available for next month’s Cookbook Club. The theme for the month is Books from Blogs. I have looked at the cookbooks and there are some yummy looking recipes in them. Join us on Monday Aug. 15 at 6:30 p.m. for a wonderful potluck. For more information contact us at spl@prl.ab.ca.

The book sale will run from Thursday, Aug. 11 to Wednesday, Aug. 17 (just remember that we are closed on Sundays). This is a great way to stock up on reading material for the Labour Day long weekend and for the long fall harvest.

Additional activities may require pre-registration, so keep checking spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for more fun and learning going on at the library! Have an idea for something you want to do or see at the library? Feel free to let us know. We hope to see you soon!
