Library gets back to winter schedule

To everything, there is a season (turn, turn, turn).

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — To everything, there is a season (turn, turn, turn). Our summer students have finished up a wonderful season of games, food and fun at the Stettler Public Library. Jordan has revamped the children’s nonfiction section to make items easier to find. And Mary has headed off into the bright blue yonder to High River. The library has quieted down after the craziness of this summer, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing happening.

September is Library Card Sign-up month and the Stettler Public Library has partnered with some wonderful local businesses to make your library card even better. During the month of September, you can present your library card at Blokes Bakery and receive a free donut, get 10 per cent off at the Coffee Tree and Party Maxx and receive 15 per cent off at Savage Value Drug Mart.

Are you starting to itch to stitch? Are you gravitating towards pretty colours and fabrics? Then you must have quilting fever. Come to the Stettler Public Library every Tuesday from Sept. 6 to Oct. 11 from 6 to 8 p.m. Jean Dyck will be returning to teach you how to make a beautiful quilt from scratch. Please call the library to find out which supplies you need to purchase and to register for this amazing program. Hurry because there are only a few spots available.

Have you got your film circuit passes yet? The 2016-2017 season starts on Monday, Sept. 5 at 7 p.m. at our beloved Jewel Theatre and we’re kick-starting the season with the British film “Sing Street.” It is the story of a 14-year-old boy looking for a break from his troubled school and home life in 1980s Dublin and shows us a world where music has the power to take us away from the turmoil of everyday life and transform us into something greater. Come see this heartwarming and nostalgic journey. Passes to see 4 or 8 movies can be purchased.

Read and Rhyme will be resuming on Monday, Sept. 12 at 10:30 a.m. Little people (ages up to five), bring your big people each Monday and Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. for songs, rhymes, and crafts.

We are welcoming the wonders of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) Saturdays starting on Sept. 10 at 10:30 a.m. when we have a watercolour explosion for ages five and up. We will be comparing properties of different liquids while we make a gorgeous piece of art.

Tired of sandwiches for lunch but having troubles figuring out alternatives? Why not join us for the next installment of the Cookbook Club? We will be meeting on Monday, Sept. 19 at 6 p.m. while we let our taste buds try the delights of portable food for lunches. New members are always welcome. The cookbooks for September are available at the library.

Keep checking 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.
