Halloween celebration coming with many interesting surprises

I can’t believe that it is already the last week of October. It is amazing how time flies when you are having fun and, boy, is the Stettler Public Library going to have fun this week.

I can’t believe that it is already the last week of October. It is amazing how time flies when you are having fun and, boy, is the Stettler Public Library going to have fun this week.

The big event for the week is the library’s Halloween celebration. We have been excitedly getting prepared for the party for the past couple of weeks and we are confident that everybody is going to have fun.

The party on Saturday, Oct. 31 starts off with story time at 11:15 a.m. Join us for stories, crafts and a special Halloween treat. Remember that it is Halloween, so everybody is welcome to come dressed as their favourite ghost, superhero or princess.

Our teen Halloween party begins at 1 p.m. and we are going to have an afternoon of ghoulish delight. There will be pumpkin carving, apple bobbing, a poetry slam, games and the highlight of the day will be the Fear Factor Feed-Off. The menu for the 3rd annual Fear Factor Feed-Off is a smorgasborg of culinary delights: snot and clots, ogre eyeballs, blood clot beverage, severed toes and chocolate-covered cockroaches. Everybody aged 10 to 18 is welcome and remember to come in your costume.

Even though Halloween is the big event, don’t forget about the other programs that the library has to offer. Wednesdays are Teen Night. Join Shaunzy for games and fun every Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m. Also part of the Wednesday night line-up is the Teen Book Club with Deb at 6 p.m. It is a night of words as the world of books leads into a mean game of scrabble.

Thursday nights is time for Bedtime Stories at 7 p.m. Join Crystal for a half hour of bedtime classics. Come in your pajamas and bring your teddy bear and blanket, because you will be asleep in no time.

Our next meeting of the Readers’ Circle is Thursday, Nov. 5 at 7:30 p.m. The book in focus for the night is “The Thirteenth Tale” by Diane Setterfield. Everybody is welcome.

Remembrance Day is only a few weeks away and we would like to let you know that the Stettler Public Library will be closed on Wednesday, Nov. 11. Lest we forget.
