It is November 9 and my mind is thinking about all the Christmas presents that I have to make and what I have to purchase. With this circling around my brain, I found this tidbit that I thought that you would find interesting. In Iceland, books are exchanged as Christmas Eve presents, then you spend the rest of the night in bed reading them and eating chocolate. Now that is a tradition that I can get behind. And the Stettler Public Library is giving you your Christmas present all year round because memberships for the citizens of Stettler and the County of Stettler are free forever!
If you missed out on the Kids Cooking Club early in the month, you can have a second chance on Saturday Nov. 18 at 10:30 a.m. On the menu will be Orange and Grape Tortellini Salad or Tuna Tortellini Salad with Ambrosia for dessert. It is a great way to learn how to be creative with your lunch. You must preregister by calling the library at 403-742-2292.
Also on Saturday Nov. 18 at 12 noon is the advanced tournament for our monthly Super Smash Bros. gatherings. This is open to everyone of all ages who consider themselves experts at the Super Smash Bros. WiiU game. Come on in and have some fun and challenge your friends.
Last but not least on Saturday Nov. 18 is Crystal’s Crochet Club. Show off your love of winter with a handmade crocheted snowflake! All levels of experience welcome. If you have any questions about what is needed, please call Crystal at the library.
Join us for the next Cookbook Club on Monday November 20 at 6:30 p.m. when we explore the wonders of soups and stews. Share your favourite cold weather recipes and try some new comfort foods. Everyone is welcome.
Have you attended the Stettler Public Library’s Art Club yet? If you haven’t, come and join us on Tuesday November 21 from 4 to 6 p.m. This time we will be sketching comic book characters and still objects, and you will also have the option to create optical illusion art. This club is open to ages 7 and up and we ask that you pre-register.
The Stettler Public Library will be closed on Saturday November 11 to honour the sacrifice of all of those who fought for our peace and freedom.
