LEGO weekends start Saturday

Stettler is full of such rich history and many of the families who have played a large part in that history still live in the area.

Stettler is full of such rich history and many of the families who have played a large part in that history still live in the area. That is why the Stettler Public Library is so pleased to have Lorraine Lohr Cathro present her self-published family history/memoir.

Titled “Roots and Ad­ventures: A Prairie Child­hood”, Lorraine believes that ‘everyone has stories’ and she will tell parts of her story when she reads excerpts from the book about growing up in and around Erskine and Stettler. There is no cost and refreshments will be served. Copies of Lorraine’s book will be available for purchase. Everyone is welcome and bring a friend.

Copies of our next Read­ers’ Circle selection “The Casual Vacancy” by J.K. Rowling are available at the Stettler Public Library. Read Rowling’s adult debut and join us for lively discussion on Thursday, June 5 at 7:30 p.m.

On Saturday, June 7 at 10 a.m., kids are invited to come celebrate Robert Munsch’s birthday with stories, snacks and activities.

Is LEGO your life? Start­ing on Saturday, June 7, and meeting on each Saturday afternoon from 1 to 4 pm 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. To kick off the LEGO club, we are pleased to have Bricks for Kidz come out on Satur­day June 7 to help with cre­ative uses of LEGO com­ponents. Build motorized Gadgets and Gizmos that actually move and work to make spin art, have a paper crinkle race and create op­tical illusions. All builders will be entered in to win a Bricks 4 Kidz t-shirt. If you have any LEGO that your family is no longer using, the Stettler Public Library will gladly take it off your hands.

Eureka, the summer reading program, begins in four weeks. Chelsey, Lind­sey, Morgan and Taigan have so much in store this summer that they can barely contain themselves. There will be programs available for a variety of ages: 5-7 year olds (Tiny Tinkers), 8-11 year olds (Engineers), and Teens. There will also be weekly family friendly events, which will be open to all ages. The Summer Reading Club has its own Facebook page (under Stettler Summer Reading Program) and we will be posting updates and details as the summer gets closer. Keep an eye out for upcom­ing events and information.
