Hop on down to the library

Library corner for April 14, 2022

By Crystal Friars

Easter weekend is upon us and we couldn’t be more excited.

Although we will be closed on Fri, April 15 for Good Friday, we will be open on Saturday and Easter Monday so that you can stop by and check out some great books, movies, videogames and more.

You know that we are more than just books, right? Check out the programs that we have for the whole family.

Now that we have finished making our Peeps dioramas, we have the perfect activity to use up those left-over Peeps.

We will be making Peeps slime. Yes, you heard me right: slime!

Join us on the Brain Train on Sat, April 16 at 10:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. to make some awesome Peeps slime! Spaces are limited: call and book your spot today!

The following weekend on Sat, April 23 we will be hosting Kids Coding Club. Beginners and children ages 6-7 can sign up for our 10:30 a.m. session, while intermediate coders ages 8+ are welcome to join us at 12 p.m.

For our littlest patrons ages 0-5, join us for Read and Rhyme on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:30 a.m. We will sing songs, practice our rhymes, listen to stories, and have a great time! We want everyone to join us for the best time that littles can have with their big people. Please note that there is a change from Mondays to Tuesdays; come and dance with us!

Earth Day is Fri, April 22 and Something Cool After School will be observing this very important day on Tue, April 19 and Thur, April 21 at 4 p.m. Have you ever wondering how they clean up an oil spill? You will get to experiment and figure out what is the best way to do a clean-up! Spaces are limited; call to book your spot today!

Teen Scene will be celebrating all that is Harry Potter on Thur, April 21 at 6 p.m. We will make wands, play some trivia, try some butterbeer and so much more. Teens and ‘tweens are invited to join us but you have to reserve your spot first. Call the Library to get in on the fun.

Adult Games Night is back but this time we are having it at the Stettler Public Library.

Everyone 18 and older is welcome to join us for some JackBox games, board games, and we will bring out the VR for additional fun! Drop in between 6 and 8 p.m. to join in on the fun.

We are always welcoming new readers to join our book club: Reader’s Circle.

This month we are reading The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner. Described as a poisonously good read, this mystery will keep us turning the pages until the end. Pick up a copy and join us on Tues, April 26 at 6:30 p.m. for some lively discussion. You can join us in person or via Zoom; call us to register.

Like every other piece of spring cleaning that we do, we should take a fresh look at our resumes. Call and book an appointment on Thursdays from 1 to 3 p.m. to meet with our volunteer resource person who has 30+ years of experience working in the area of employment supports.

We want to thank all of you who stopped by at our booth at the Trade Show and filled out our survey.

These surveys are an important tool that we use to make sure that we are serving the community the best way possible. The Stettler Friends of the Library Society would also like to thank everyone for supporting the Giant Book Sale. It was phenomenal and you are the best!

That is all for this week. To register for programs or get information, call the Stettler Public Library at 403-742-2292. We are ready and willing to help you get what you need.
