STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — Have you renewed your library membership? Or are you needing a library membership? As of Jan. 1, 2017 a membership at the Stettler Public Library Library is completely free. Yes, you will be able to access the entire collection of the Library plus the rest of Alberta’s library collections for no charge. You also have access to the Parkland Regional Library’s e-content like Cloud Library and Zinio. However, you don’t need a membership to enjoy our library programs. But really why wouldn’t you get a membership because it is the best deal in town or county.

The Stettler Public Library is back in the swing of things and January is jam packed full of programming for everyone. Check us out this month.

Afterschool with Darlene explores Northern Lights and other Delights on Thursday, Jan. 12 at 3:30 p.m. The kids will be enjoying the story “Once Upon a Northern Night” and then making their own Aurora Borealis.

Saturday, Jan. 14 is jam-packed with so many things going on that you will have to pick and choose which event you’d like to come for. We start off with our monthly Pokemon Swap Meet from 10:30 a.m. to noon. We follow that up with making a duct-tape Chapstick holder at 12:30 p.m. This is for ages 10 and up but younger children may attend if accompanied by an adult.

If you want to try something new in 2017 why don’t you try either Crystal’s Crochet Club or the Cookbook Club? If working with yarn is something that you want to give a go, join Crystal on Saturday, Jan. 14 at 1:30 p.m. Join us for some tips, tutoring and talk on the art of crocheting.

But if food is something that you can really get behind, join the Cookbook Club on Monday, Jan. 16 at 6:30 p.m. This month’s theme is Ukrainian Christmas and Chinese New Year. New members are always welcome. Call 403-742-2292 for more details.

Put Friday, January 27 on your calendar because we need your help. Stettler is in competition with other libraries throughout the region, the province, and the country and we want to win. It is easy to participate: all you have to do is read for 15 minutes and then contact us at the library via phone, Facebook, Twitter, e-mail (spl@prl.ab.ca), website or just come in. Read for 15 and let’s bring the Reading Smackdown 2017 title to Stettler.

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.
