Library books move to temporary location

The Stettler Public Library is going through some huge changes right now.

The Stettler Public Library is going through some huge changes right now.

We are currently closed until Monday, Sept. 16. so that we can move to our temporary location on Main Street at 4917-50 St (former Maxwell Realty building).

It has been a lot of work, but it is all going to be worth it in the end.

We will have a small selection of items for you to browse and find something interesting at the temporary location and there is still the enormous selection of materials available to you through libraries province-wide.

You might have to wait a few days longer but we will still be able to get the items that you seek.

We will also have public internet access but fewer computers will be available for this service. We intend to provide regular programming as much as possible. For example, Read and Rhyme Playtime will be moving to the temporary location on Wednesday, Sept. 18, at the new time of 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.

Read and Rhyme Playtime will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays. Watch for details about other programming as we get settled.

Parking for our temporary location can be found in front of the building or in the parking lot behind. We will leave the back door open so you can utilize that entry, as well.

There will be no after-hours book drop available at our temporary location, but we will leave the one at the Recreation Centre open until Sunday, Sept. 16.

After that point, you will have to return your books in person at 4917-50 Street.

The board and the staff of the Stettler Public Library want to thank you for your patronage and patience during this time of upheaval.

Remember that with a little pain comes momentous gain and we are going to have a wonderful community hub when this is finished.
