Well, you better start thinking quick because Christmas is only 45 days away and you don’t want to be caught getting behind.

The Stettler Public Library can help you with your Christmas to-do list.

Do you have people that you find difficult to buy for or somebody who has everything? Why not make a donation in their name to the Stettler Public Library? Tax receipts will be given for any donation over $10 and if the donation is made through the Lois Hole Library Legacy program a card of acknowledgement is given to the donor to be presented to the honouree.

What if you have decided to make everybody something this year for Christmas?

The Stettler Public Library has a wide array of craft books available to help you with your projects. We have specific Christmas craft books like Better Homes and Gardens Christmas All Through the House to just general craft books like Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Crafts.

For those of you who like to use wool, we have a large selection of knitting and crocheting books. If you want to work with something a little more solid, like wood, we have Woodworking for Dummies and 2×4 Projects for Outdoor Living.

Now if cooking and baking are more your style, why not check out the Stettler Public Library’s cookery section. We have a large selection of cookbooks from the basic but tasty recipes from Company’s Coming and Taste of Home. We also have a wide selection of popular chefs’ cookbooks like Mario Batali, Jamie Oliver, Giada De Laurentiis and Nigella Lawson.

But if you need specific Christmas cookery books, we have Nigella Christmas, Betty Crocker’s Best Christmas Cookbook and The Essential Canadian Christmas Cookbook.

We are bringing back our annual Christmas craft extravaganza for the third year: Craftapalooza. It is fun for crafters for all ages. We will be making rolled candles, decorated light switch plates, holiday cards and envelopes, painted gift bags, paper chains, gift tags and much more. It will be taking place on Saturday, Dec. 5 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Everybody is welcome.

Remember that a library card makes a great gift for any occasion. The Stettler Public Library: your one-stop Christmas information stop. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at 403-742-2292 or check out our website at
