‘Loving Vincent’ first in 2018 Stettler library movie series

Learn to build a bridge at Stettler Library Jan. 6

2017 has left us hunkered down in our homes with hot beverages and good books. Here’s to hoping that 2018 doesn’t start off as cold as 2017 ended. But remember that the Stettler Public Library is here to keep you entertained no matter what the weather brings us.

Do you have your four movie pass for the next half of the Film Circuit series? It is a great deal of $35 for those four exciting films and they can be purchased at the Stettler Public Library. January 8 is the first showing of the New Year and I must say that I’m really excited about “Loving Vincent”. Each of the film’s 65,000 frames is an oil painting on canvas, using the same technique as Van Gogh, created by a team of 125 painters. You must watch the trailer because it is so beautiful. So join us at the Jewel Theatre on Monday, January 8 at 7 p.m. for a wonderful cinematic experience.

Mazes are so much fun, unless you get caught in one. But the mazes that we will be making are great fun, only on a much smaller level. On Friday, January 5 at noon join us for LEGO Marble Mazes. Build and test maze designs using just LEGO! Then at 2 p.m. we will be making mazes out of Perler Beads.

Next up on Saturday January 6 we have two wonderful programs. Have you ever wondered what it would take to build a bridge? You will get to do that on a small scale at 10:30 a.m. when you try to build a bridge that can support a heavy load or span a “canyon” at the library.

Then we get into the spy business at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday January 6 when we become “Secret Coders”. You will get to create secret messages with unique codes. Then it is up to your friends to decode it.

Is it your New Year’s resolution to try something new? Why not come to Crystal’s Crochet Club on Saturday January 13 at 1:30 p.m. Grab a 6mm crochet hook and a ball of yarn and learn the basics of crocheting. It is a great way to keep your hands busy during the cold winter’s nights.

As always, for the most updated information please check spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for news of any other neat events and activities!

And we will see you all next year!
