Holiday classic on library screen

Christmas is coming fast, so why not make your shopping easy?

Christmas is coming fast, so why not make your shopping easy? Library memberships are gifts that keep giving throughout the entire year and that the whole family can enjoy. You can also make a donation to the library in honour of a special someone. Donations of $20 or more are tax-deductible and are great for those who are hard to buy for. Stop in and discuss your Christmas options with a staff member.

The Stettler Public Library is a drop-off point for the Christmas hamper. Give a donation to the Hamper Society and enter to win a variety of prizes. Everyone should have a holly jolly Christmas.

On Thursday, Dec. 13, at 7 p.m., the Movie Night at the Stettler Public Library will be a holiday classic. Join Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen as they ring in the holidays with the 1954 classic “White Christmas”. Join us for popcorn and a great movie and we won’t stop you from singing along.

Our last Tech Time for Seniors for 2012 will take place on Thursday, Dec. 20, from 1 to 3 pm. Need to learn how to use your new digital camera before the grandkids arrive or learn to send your Christmas e-mails? The staff of the Stettler Public Library can help you.

Our last event before the holiday break is on Saturday, Dec. 22, at 1 p.m. when the family can come and decorate gingerbread men, sip some cocoa and watch “Arthur Christmas”. Spend some downtime at the Stettler Public Library before the extended family arrives.

We have also planned some great activities to keep the kids entertained during the holiday break. First up is Pirate Day on Saturday, Dec. 29, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. We’ll teach ye land lubbers to talk like pirates, walk like pirates and eat like pirates. I would suggest that you should come dressed like a pirate too!

Robot Day is taking over the library on Wednesday, Jan. 2, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. You will learn about robots, build your own robot and play robot games. The future is upon us!

Last but not least is the most terrifying day for those of us that work at the Library!

Reptiles will be invading the library on Friday, Jan. 4, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. for Reptile Day. Come and check out creepy creatures and laugh at the staff hiding under their desks!
