January fun is found at Stettler Public Library

Kids Cooking Club is great fun, great learning

The kids are back in school so that means that everything is getting back to a regular schedule. Some people think that nothing fun happens in January. Ha! Check out what is going on at the Stettler Public Library this month.

Calling all beginner Smash Bros. players! Join us for our monthly Super Smash Bros. Beginner Tournament on Saturday January 13 at 12 p.m. Challenge your friends and enjoy an afternoon of gaming at the Library.

Is it your New Year’s resolution to try something new? Why not come to Crystal’s Crochet Club on Saturday January 13 at 1:30 p.m. Grab a 6 mm crochet hook and a ball of yarn and learn the basics of crocheting. It is a great way to keep your hands busy during the cold winter’s nights.

There are lots of spots for the Art Club on Tuesday January 16 at 4 p.m. You will be able to create an artistic masterpiece about your favourite subject with oil pastels and acrylics. I think it is time that we have an art show with all the wonderful art that is made by this club.

There are also spots available for our Kids Cooking Club (for ages 6 and up) on Saturday January 20 at 10:30 a.m. and again at 2 p.m. The recipe of the day is…Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Thumbprint Cookies! Call the library at 403-742-2292 to register.

Put Monday February 5 at 7 p.m. on your calendar right away because it is the night of our tiff Film Circuit movie for February. “Lucky” is Harry Dean Stanton’s (Twin Peaks, Alien, Pretty in Pink) final movie performance before his death in September 2017. The movie follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off-the-map desert town. This movie is rated Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Tickets are $10 and are available at the door the night of the showing.

As always, for the most updated information please check spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for news of any other neat events and activities! And we will see you all next year!
