Library’s summer reading already halfway in the books

We can hardly believe that we’re halfway through the Stettler Public Library’s summer reading program.

We can hardly believe that we’re halfway through the Stettler Public Library’s summer reading program.

So far, we have explored topics such as time travel, dinosaurs, epic quests, wacky whimsical worlds, and now we are moving to fantastical machines!

Last Friday, we had our Wacky Hair Day. There were some really creative hairdos and the kids loved our props at the photo booth. Afterward, we enjoyed some delicious pizza from Stettler Pizza.

This coming Friday, we will be going bowling, so be sure to get those permission forms signed and back to us by Thursday. Permission forms are available at the library.

Enter the weekly contests and remember, the more you read, the more chances you have to win prizes!

Just a friendly reminder that the library is still looking for Lego of any kind. If your Lego is collecting dust in your basement or garage, please consider donating it to the library.

Speaking of Lego, on Wednesday, Aug. 8, we will be having Bricks 4 Kidz Lego Camp coming to the library for an afternoon. Pre-registration is required and there are only 25 spots available. Sign up at the library or give us a call.

The library is always looking for volunteers for the Reading Buddy program. Come into the library to pick up a sign-up form or call us for more information. Make a difference in your community today.

We need more readers ages five to seven. Currently, we have a surplus of older children eager to read.

Library events

Every Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m., there’s a teen book discussion weekly draw and movie night. This week, we will be showing Hugo. Kids are welcome to come, too! Hugo is rated PG.

This Friday, the summer reading program participants will be going bowling at Heartland Bowl from 2 to 4 p.m. We will meet at the library at 1:45 p.m. and walk over to the bowling alley. Permission forms are available at the library and they must be returned by Thursday.

Every Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m., there’s a kids’ movie playing at the library. Next week’s movie will be The Muppets. Kids are welcome to bring snacks.

Reading Buddies is on Tuesdays from 2 to 3 p.m. and on Thursdays from 1 to 2 p.m.

The story-writing workshop is held on Wednesdays and Fridays from 3 to 4 p.m.

Every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon, the summer program is at Rochon Sands Hall for arts and crafts, games and a whole lot of fun.

Summer Sound Sessions (brought to you by Alberta Health Services — Speech and Language Services) is held on Wednesdays from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at the library (ages four and up).

On Aug. 8, the library will be having a Lego event (two hours, for ages five to 12) put on by the Red Deer Bricks 4 Kidz group. There are only 25 spots available, so please sign up at the library as soon as you can.
