Make balloon animals like a pro

Lots events at library, including Pokemon swap meet and ‘Gamerz’

By Jordana Roller

And just like that August is here. No needs to start thinking about school yet though, we still have a whole month of fun planned here at the library.

On Aug, 6 the library will be closed for the long weekend, meaning there will be no programming on this day. We will begin “Food” week on Aug. 7 with a kids make and create day. At 10:30 a.m., kids ages six to eight will make their own mini pizzas. As spaces are limited for this event, please call the library to preregister. Also for our make and create day, ages nine to 12 will learn how to make their own colourful play dough. This event will begin at 12:30 p.m., please call to pre-register.

On Aug. 8 from 2: p.m.- 4 p.m. join the Summer Reading Club and learn how to make balloon animals like a pro with the amazing, Amy Beard. This family event is open to all ages, please call to pre-register. Ever wonder how butter is made? Come down to the library and we’ll teach you just that. The event takes place on Aug. 9 at 10:30 a.m. for ages six to eight and at 12:30 p.m. for ages nine to 12. As spaces are limited for this event, please call the library to pre-register. We will wrap up food week with Ratatouille for our Friday film, come and enjoy popcorn and a movie in the library at 2 p.m. on Aug. 10.

And don’t forget about our ongoing programs. Every Thursday from 4:30 p.m. to – 6:30 p.m., play, battle, and trade your favourite Pokemon at our weekly Pokemon swap meet. We also have ‘Gamerz’ for those PC Gaming lovers out there, all ages welcome every Tuesday and Thursday at 4 p.m. And every Saturday at 1 p.m. the Stettler Public Library presents: Super Smash Bros Summer, all ages are welcome.
