Library books new address

With renovations to begin soon at the Stettler Recreation Centre, Stettler Public Library plans to relocate to downtown for the next

With renovations to begin soon at the Stettler Recreation Centre, Stettler Public Library plans to relocate to downtown for the next three months.

“We will be packing over the next two weeks, and by Sept. 12 or 13, we expect to be in our new temporary location,” library manager Mary Zazelenchuk said.

That’s when “a small-scale library” is slated to open at its new home at 4917 — 50 Street in the Maxwell Realty building.

As the library staff packs and moves, the manager welcomes volunteers to help from Sept. 5 to 10.

“We will have movers for a day or two to move the heavier equipment,” Zazelenchuk said.

At the next location, the library will still provide essential services, with a small collection of resources and programs and “a few computers,” she said. “We ask for users’ patience during this time, but we look forward to the new facility. When we re-open in the new, modernized library, we will have a newer and bigger and better collection of books to better meet the needs of readers and users.”

For now, users will still have access to the interlibrary loan system.

Initially, the new Stettler library will be open for the full hours now provided, Zazelenchuk said, though that schedule could change in accordance with the demand of the users.
