Stettler Library

The Stettler Public Library has the calendar jam-packed with so many entertaining programs in the New Year that we will keep the family busy for days. Just check out the first week of 2019.

Jan. 3 brings another Artist Morning when the kids get to explore Mondrian Cubism Art at 10:30 a.m. Piet Mondrian was one of the most well-known abstract artists of the 20th century. He depicted nature using a systematic network of right angles and grids.

Wanting to do some research to find your ancestors? Join the Stettler Genealogy Club on Jan. 3 at 6:30 p.m. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, you will have a fun and productive time connecting with other genealogy buffs.

Jan. 4’s Artist Morning at 10:30 a.m. is Fractured Art where Science and art collide. The kids become artists creating fractured art using basic chemistry and watercolours.

Jan. 5 sees the beginning of our ongoing Smash Bros with tournaments from 1 to 4 p.m. We can’t get enough Smash Bros so why should you? Open to all ages.

Ukulele Night is back in 2019. Join us on Jan. 9 at 6:30 p.m. Bring your own instrument or learn to shred on one of the library’s two ukuleles. All levels are welcome so resolve to join us for a fun evening of music.

The Film Circuit passes for Winter 2019 make a perfect Christmas gift for yourself or someone you love. For a modest fee you can enjoy the following films: “The Grizzlies,” “Shoplifters,” “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” and “The Favourite.” Enjoy a night at the movies and support the Stettler Public Library and the Jewel Theatre at the same time. The four movie passes are available until Jan. 5, 2019.

Join us at the Jewel Theatre for our first movie of 2019 on Jan. 7 at 7:30 p.m. for the Canadian movie “The Grizzlies.” Based on a true story, “The Grizzlies” is about determination and resilience. In a small Arctic town struggling with the highest suicide rate in North America, a group of Inuit students’ lives are transformed when they are introduced to the sport of lacrosse. It’s a great movie to start the New Year.
