Lots of activities planned for September at the Stettler Library

Something cool after school returns

By Crystal Friars

I’m baaack! My summer break is now over and the Stettler Public Library has so much going on in September that I’m going to stop talking and just get to the good stuff.

First, we have a new library manager at Stettler Public Library. Come on in and say hi to Rhonda O’Neill. She is really looking forward to getting to know what is important to people in the community so that we can continue to offer the services and events that you want.

Did you know that September is Library Card Sign-up Month? The Stettler Public Library offers more than just books, and cards are free for residents of Stettler and Stettler County. We are the cheapest knowledge and entertainment centre in town! This month libraries across the region are competing to sign up the biggest percentage of new members. Your card might be the one to push Stettler Public Library into the winner’s circle.

Are you a student in Grades 7-12? If yes, come to our first Teen Scene meeting at the Stettler Public Library on Sept. 14 from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. There will be pizza. We want you to bring your ideas for future programs and other cool things you would like to do at the Stettler Public Library.

Our Cooking Clubs are back. We are making delicious and healthy chocolate crunch bars on Sept. 15 at 10:30 a.m. Kids ages six to 11 are encouraged to register. We will repeat this session on Sept. 29 at 2 p.m. for ages six and up. Pre-registration is required for this program so that we can make sure we have enough ingredients! Just be aware that there is milk in the recipe for anyone with dairy allergies.

Cookbook Club is back. Bring your best “Garden Fresh” recipe and join us for a great night of potluck food and interesting conversation. Put Sept. 17 at 6:30 on your calendar and then join us on the third Thursday of each month for a great time with great food.

We are celebrating science during the week of Sept. 17 to 22. We will start on Sept. 19 at 6 p.m. when we will be showing “Cosmos: a Spacetime Odyssey.” Great entertainment for science or space enthusiasts plus we will be serving popcorn.

“Something Cool after School” is back on Sept. 20 at 4 p.m. The kids will be enjoying the book “Cinderella in the City: a Retelling” and then the kids will have to get creative when they make something new that Cinderella will enjoy.

Do you like quilting? Join Jean Dyck for the Block of Month quilting class. Learn a new block every month. Register for the first block of the fall on Sept. 20 at 6 p.m. You must pre-register because there are only six spots available, register early.

Are you looking for a book to take on a trip but don’t want to sign out a library book? Come and check out our new ongoing Friends of the Library Book Sale Shelf. The rules of our giant book sales still apply: no set price, we just ask for a donation.

This is only a taste of what the Stettler Public Library has to offer for the month of September. Call us at 403-742-2292 for more information on any of the services that we offer. Check out our website at spl.prl.ab.ca and follow us on Facebook.
