Library is back in action after New Year

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY -- Have you ever wanted to build something but you never had the materials or knowledge to do so?

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — Have you ever wanted to build something but you never had the materials or knowledge to do so? Well look no further. The fantastic Mark Fox will be at the library on Tuesdays at 3 p.m. He will be running the Make, Take, and Create drop-in program. This time is unscripted and ad hoc. Just show up and we’ll use the library’s tools and resources to help you flesh out your ideas and possibly hook you up with local talent that can help you make your idea a reality or help you explore an interest. All ages welcome.

Remember those gaming laptops from last week? They are still here, calling to you. They are full of preloaded games, just waiting to be played. So come on in to the library and use them before it’s too late, they head home on Jan. 13.

On Saturday, Jan. 19 at 10:30 a.m. we are saluting popcorn. With various popcorn-based activities, crafts and snacks, you will be smiling from ear to ear. From little corns to kernels everyone is welcome to our Popcorn Bonanza.

Every Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. from Jan. 13 to March 14 – Colour Me Radd is an adult colouring group. Here it is—your moment of Zen. Waiting for your child at hockey, swimming, or other activities? Join us downstairs at the Rec Centre on Wednesdays and we’ll provide pencil crayons and intricate colouring sheets designed for adults.

Every Wednesday at 3 p.m. from Jan. 13 to March 16, we present, Rainbow Brite, a children’s colouring group. Do you love to colour? Join us at the library. We’ll provide colouring sheets featuring children’s characters, seasonal designs, and more. Feel free to bring your favorite coloring book.

You can do so much with your fingers. You can text, poke a cat, get clawed by said cat, and much more, but did you ever think you could make a blanket with your fingers? Well, on Saturday, Jan. 16 at 10:30 a.m., our resident gem Crystal will be teaching anyone and everyone how to crochet with nothing but your fingers… and yarn. You kind of need that too, you will need to bring your own yarn.

Keep an eye out for additional activities on our website (spl.prl.ab.ca) and Facebook page. And if you have an activity you’d like to do/see at the library feel free to let us know!
