Library closes book on its summer reading program

We’re entering the final week of the summer reading program at the Stettler Public Library.

We’re entering the final week of the summer reading program at the Stettler Public Library. We’ve gone on so many imagination adventures this summer. Time really flies when you are having fun.

Our final weekly theme is “In Your Dreams,” and it might be our busiest yet. We’re finishing off on a high note with another bowling trip, a Hunger Games Party and the Fractured Fairy Tale Wind-Up Party.

We’ve made it to 13,000 minutes, which means we’re still in the running for our second pizza party. Make sure you bring in those minutes.

Mysteries and Scary Stories was another success. Last Wednesday, Bricks 4 Kidz had the children engaged with their LEGO creations. The teen program transformed old books into cool crafts, including book safes, book clutches and book bursts. Recycling at its finest.

At our Friday event, CSI in the library, the kids proved their super sleuthing skills by solving the mystery of the stolen library book.

The summer reading program is going to be a part of the Stettler Steel Wheel Stampede parade on Friday at 4 p.m. Come down to the library to grab a permission form and make sure to bring your Wacky Hairdo! There will be no Friday summer program, because we’ll be in the parade.

Friendly reminders

The library is looking for LEGO of any kind. If your Lego is collecting dust in your basement or garage, please consider donating it to the library.

Alberta Culture Days is just around the corner. The library would like to display some local art. If you paint, draw, take photographs or make other art that you would like to exhibit, get in touch with the library (403-742-2292) before Sept. 15.
