Library will be buzzing this week with kids preparing for Mother’s Day on May 8 – Literally Yours

Thanks to a sponsor, for the past four years, the citizens of Stettler who use the Handibus have been able to come to the library on a round trip free of charge.

However, the current sponsorship has ended and the Stettler Public Library is looking for new sponsor for the free Handibus rides to the library. A round-trip on the Handibus costs the seniors and physically challenged people of Stettler $8 per trip and many cannot afford the trip to the library on their fixed income. The Handibus makes an average of four trips to the library per week and this gives four individuals per week the opportunity to use the services that the Stettler Public Library has to offer. If you or your business would like to sponsor the Handibus rides to the Stettler Public Library, please contact us at 403-742-2292 or spl@libs.prl.ab.ca. Your name will be placed prominently on all advertising for the service and you will receive a tax receipt for your donation. Please help us continue this service.

If you are looking for something for your children to do after school, the Stettler Public Library has programs that can help you keep your children busy. If your kids cannot sit still, then Fitapalooza is the program from you. Running on Tuesdays from 4 to 4:30 p.m. with CJ Oprea, it is the after-school move-your-body-in-the-library program, a great way to get the wiggles out before going home to do homework.

The Stettler Public Library is helping your school-age children salute moms with two special editions of Something Cool after School. Join us at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, May 4 to make a Mother’s Day Basket. This is a one hour event in which the kids can make the most beautiful basket possible for mom. The following day, Thursday May 5 at 4 p.m., the kids can make a card to go with the basket when they come to Grow a Card. The kids will be making paper that has flower seeds in it which will be able to planted this spring.

We are pleased to have Karen Olafson, a registered dietician, present an information session on infant nutrition and baby food on Tuesday, May 10 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. She will be doing a demonstration and answering any questions that you may have on making homemade goodness for your baby. We hope to see you for this information-filled afternoon.

Are you looking for something fun to do as a family? Why not come to the Stettler Public Library to see a movie? Bring your own snack and join us on Tuesday, May 17 for Justin Bieber: Never Say Never and on Tuesday, May 24 for Gnomeo and Juliet. Show time for both movies is 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. If you can’t make these showings, the Stettler Public Library will be adding these movies to our collection.

The Stettler Public Library is holding an open house and volunteer appreciation event on Wednesday, May 18 from 2 to 8 pm. We invite you to come and take a look around to see what the library has to offer.

There will be tours, coffee and snacks throughout the day. You may also get a first look at this year’s summer program “Splash!” You can also join us at 7 p.m. when we honour the volunteers that help make this library the wonderful place that it is. We would love to see you.

With spring upon us, it has been decided that Itsy Bitsy Yoga is going to take a break until further notice. However Read and Rhyme Playtime will continue on Wednesday and Friday mornings at 10:30 a.m.

If you have any questions about any of our programs or services, you can contact us at 403-742-2292; check out our website at http://spl.prl.ab.ca or friend us on Facebook under Stettler Bibliotheque.
