‘Julieta’ to be screened on March 6

The month of February is almost over! That is 17 per cent of the year will be gone in just a few days.

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — The month of February is almost over! That is 17 per cent of the year will be gone in just a few days. But it is never too late to try something new. Check out what the library has to offer this week.

Come and try your hand at creative writing by joining the Writers’ Club on Thursday, Feb. 23 at 6:30 p.m. Bring a pen or pencil and creativity and join others as they strive to write the Great Canadian novel. Everyone’s welcome.

The afternoon of Saturday, Feb. 25 is packed full of great events. Join Crystal at 1:30 p.m. for Crystal’s Crochet Club where you can learn something new or bring your current WIP (Work in Progress). At 2 p.m. we will be showing the film adaption of the book “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.” And like always, popcorn will be served.

Our next Afterschool with Darlene is on Thursday, March 2 at 3:30 p.m. Have you ever wondered how difficult it would be to babysit a grandma or grandpa? Learn about what it would take to do this while we enjoy the story “How to Babysit A Grandma” and you make a list of what you might need to babysit your grandma or grandpa? Or aunt or uncle? Or nana or papa?

Our spring Film Circuit is almost over. Yes, we only have two films left but don’t worry because we will be back in the fall. In the meantime, join us at the Jewel Theatre on Monday, March 6 at 7 p.m. for the Spanish movie “Julieta,” an adaption of three stories from Alice Munro’s book “Runaway.” After a chance meeting, middle-aged Julieta learns that her long-lost daughter has resurfaced in Madrid. This begins a painful reflection by Julieta into her checkered past, flashing back to the moments of pain that defined her current life.

Keep checking spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for news of any additional activities as some may require pre-registration. If you have any ideas, suggestions, or questions about activities you want to see at the library, let us know. We hope to see you at the library soon.
