It’s hard to believe that we’re in the last week of the summer reading program at the Stettler Public Library. This week, we’re exploring what happens when your imagination runs wild while you’re asleep. We’re going to discover all of the cool things that can happen “In Your Dreams.”
Last week, we hosted the Heartland Youth Centre summer program and discussed myths and legends. It was awesome to see so many kids excited about using the library. We hope your dragons are doing well. We would also like to give a shout out to our Stettler Steel Wheel parade participants. Thank you for coming out and walking with the library crew — your wacky hair made us stand out.
Time flies when you’re having fun and reading. It seems like only last week we were giving school presentations and planning out activities. We don’t know where the time has gone.
We have had so much fun getting to know everyone. We would like to extend our gratitude to all those who participated in our summer reading program. The participants make the program run and worthwhile for all of us. Thank you for a successful program and we wish you all the best in upcoming the school year.
Lastly, don’t forget about the Fractured Fairytale Wind-up Party on Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Enjoy the rest of your summer break and stay tuned for programming throughout the year.
