Interacting with Stettler library over Internet has just got better

August has started and it amazes me that time is flying by so fast to think that summer is almost over.

The Summer Reading Program at Stettler Public Library has been a success and it is still going strong. Just because the summer is half over, it is not too late to have your children take part in Destination Jungle. It runs every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and there are two different age groups. Children entering into grades 1 to 3 will join us from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. while children in grades 4 to 6 will be welcomed at 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m..

Patty has discovered that we are currently fully stocked with boxes. We would like to thank all of you who donated your boxes to our cause. We may be making another appeal in the future but for now we have enough.

Bambinos and Botanicals with Alicia has moved from Friday mornings to Thursday mornings at 10:30 a.m. to noon. Join Alicia for gardening, stories, rhymes and playtime while learning about where their food comes from. Preschoolers and their big people are all welcome.
