STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — Are you looking for the perfect gift for a movie lover? Or do you want to get a present for yourself? Well, the Winter 2017 picks for the Stettler Film Circuit have been confirmed and we are pleased to announce the following films: January 2 – Two Lovers and a Bear; February 6 – Manchester by the Sea; March 6 – Julieta; and April 3 – I, Daniel Blake. You can purchase a four-movie pass at the Stettler Public Library for $35. Or you can purchase your tickets at the Jewel Theatre’s box office the night of the movie for $10. Movies, the perfect gift.
Are you looking for something for the kids to do before you take in the wonders of the Night Before The Night Before Christmas? Join us at the Stettler Public Library when we make Perler Bead Christmas Ornaments on Friday, Dec. 23 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Create a beautiful Christmas ornament for your Christmas tree or make a last-minute Christmas gift.
If Perler Beads are not your thing, then join us for our Annual Christmas Movie Marathon all day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. All day popcorn while we show “Home Alone,” “Home Alone 2,” “The Santa Clause,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” (animated version), and the “Dreamworks Christmas Collection.” Stop by for only one movie or stay for the whole day. But if you stay for the whole day, remember to bring lunch.
Our holiday fun continues on Tuesday, Dec. 27 at 2 p.m. with the Teen Cooking Club for ages 13 and up. Learn to make candy cane popcorn and fudge with Maggie and Jessie. Please pre-register by calling the library at 403-742-2292.
If you are not old enough to join the Teen Cooking Club then join us for the library’s annual showing of “Elf” starring Will Farrell. It is never too late to watch this Christmas classic. And, like always, popcorn will be served.
Wednesday, Dec. 28 is going to be a day of fun for the whole family. It is Family Board Games Day. All day long you can come and play board games at the library and challenge your friends and family. We even have Giant Jenga!
The Stettler Public Library has set its holiday hours for 2016-2017. We are open regular hours until Friday, Dec. 23. We will be closed on Dec. 24, 25 and 26 for Christmas.
