Library to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day this weekend

The first day of spring is only 19 days away. How exciting is that!

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — The first day of spring is only 19 days away. How exciting is that! That means it is only six weeks until the snow is gone. Yeah! But if that thought depresses you, come to the Stettler Public Library for something fun to do.

Our next Afterschool with Darlene is on Thursday, March 2 at 3:30 p.m. Have you ever wondered how difficult it would be to babysit a grandma or grandpa? Learn about what it would take to do this while we enjoy the story “How to Babysit A Grandma” and you make a list of what you might need to babysit your grandma or grandpa? Or aunt or uncle? Or nana or papa?

The staff of the Stettler Public Library loves Dr. Seuss. And really who doesn’t. To celebrate what would have been Dr. Seuss’s 113th birthday, the library is having not one, not two, but three Dr. Seuss events. We start the celebrations on Friday, March 3 at 10:30 a.m. when we have Dr. Seuss Day. Celebrate the wonders of this creative genius with crafts and Dr. Seuss Bingo. We will follow that up at 1:30 p.m. with a showing of the “Dr. Seuss’s Horton Hears a Who.” Remember popcorn is always provided. Then on Saturday, March 4 at 2 p.m., Dr. Seuss’s literary classic “Green Eggs and Hams” will inspire Stettler’s up and coming chefs during Kids’ Cooking Club. Spots are limited and you must pre-register by calling the library at 403-742-2292.

Our spring Film Circuit is almost over. Yes, we only have two films left but don’t worry because we will be back in the fall. In the meantime, join us at the Jewel Theatre on Monday, March 6 at 7 p.m. for the Spanish movie “Julieta,” an adaption of three stories from Alice Munro’s book “Runaway.” After a chance meeting, middle-aged Julieta learns that her long-lost daughter has resurfaced in Madrid. This begins a painful reflection by Julieta into her checkered past, flashing back to the moments of pain that defined her current life.

Keep checking spl.prl.ab.ca 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.
