Is LEGO your life? Starting on Saturday, June 7 and meeting on each Saturday afternoon from 1 to 4 p.m. is LEGO Club. It is your turn to be creative and inventive. Join us for group builds and individual mastery using the colorful plastic brick.

On Thursday, June 12, join Lorraine Lohr Cathro as she discusses the process of writing her self-published family history/memoir titled “Roots and Adventures: A Prairie Childhood”. Lorraine believes that ‘everyone has stories’ and she will explain her points by reading short excerpts from the book about growing up in the communities of Erskine and Stettler. There is no cost, and refreshments will be served. Copies of Lorraine’s book will be available for purchase.

Currently the Stettler Public Library is working on its Plan of Service and we need your help. The purpose of the exercise is to fulfill our requirements as a library and to produce a working document that gives us vision and focus to meet the needs of our community for a three-year period. Right now, we are working on the needs assessment survey of the plan. This is a way of asking community members what they see as the most important needs the community.

The question that we would like to ask you is “What is your greatest wish for Stettler in the future?” Message us on Facebook at, contact us Twitter @stettlerlibrary or e-mail us at We are the community’s library and we would like your input.

Our outdoor book drop is now available. You can now return your materials after library hours.
