The Stettler Public Library has had a great kick off to the year with the wonderful turnout for Read and Rhyme, Dazzling Duct Tape and Lacrosse Day. We want to keep the momentum going, so check out what we have coming up for the rest of January. I am sure that there is something to tempt any member of the family to come to the Library.

Did you get a new gadget for Christmas? If you need help with it, drop by the library on Thursday Jan. 15 at 1 p.m. for Tech Time. There will be one-on-one help for those with questions about their e-readers, tablets, phones and laptops.

“Going Bovine” by Libba Bray is the topic of conversation on Thursday, Jan. 15 at 5:30 p.m. when the Spine Crackers gather to discuss the book of the month and enjoy some snacks.

Starting a new project for the new year? Join us for Chicks with Sticks at the library on Thursday, Jan. 15 at 6:30 p.m. to work on your knitting, crocheting, sewing, or whatever else you have on the go!

If finances are at the top of your list for New Year’s resolutions, then why not start with the kids? On Saturday, Jan. 17 at 10:30 a.m., we are pleased to offer Kids and Cash. Presented in conjunction with East Parkland Community Futures, this is a one-hour workshop for children age 5-8, in which we ask: What is money? How do you make it? What can you do with it? Provide your kids with the vocabulary and tools necessary to make financial choices. You can pre-register at the library by calling 403-742-2292.

Everybody loves a party, so you must join us on Friday, Jan. 23 at 10:30 a.m. for A Read & Rhyme Unbirthday for ages 0-5. Celebrate your unbirthday and join us for reading, crafts, photo booth fun, and a special gift from the library.

The Stettler Public Library strives to instill the benefits of literacy for everyone in the family. But why not have fun while doing it? Join us for a hilarious time on Saturday, Jan. 24 at 12:30 p.m. for Knock Knock! Who’s There? Family Literacy Day at the Library. There is going to be pizza, jokes, Mad Libs and board games; and reading some of the funniest books we have. We promise families with children ages 0-10 more fun than a barrel of monkeys at the library.

We are putting the final details on a night just for adults on Friday, Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. You’ve been good all month, isn’t it time to break some resolutions? Drop by the library for more information.
