Meet Stettler Library’s summer reading program co-ordinators

This year’s theme Feed Your Passions

By Crystal Friars LIT Assistant Library Manager

With the warm weather here to stay (hopefully), one can’t help but get excited for all the fun summer activities ahead of us here at the library. With the arrival of summer also comes the arrival of the summer reading program co-ordinators.

This year the summer reading program will explore various avenues within the theme Feed Your Passions, where we will learn about different things that people can be passionate about. From animals, to sports, to magic, there will be a week for everybody to celebrate what they are passionate about. Registration in this program is free and contains events for all ages.

Now, for a little bit about us.

Hello Stettler! My name is Jordana Roller and I am one of the program coordinators for this summer. I recently completed my bachelor of arts degree in psychology at Red Deer College, and will be heading back to school in the fall to start my Juris Doctor degree program. I am very excited for all of the fun events and activities that are in the works for this summer. I am especially excited to meet all of the kids who will be joining us for the program this year.

Hello! My name is Chloe Adam and I am one of the summer reading program co-ordinators this year. I finished my first year of my social work diploma program at Red Deer College and look forward to continuing in the fall. I am definitely looking forward to this year’s summer program and all the different experiments, events and crafts that we have planned.

In more imminent news, there are several upcoming events happening at the library. Do you like to write stories? Kids ages eight and up are encouraged to join us May 18 at 3 p.m. for our junior writers’ club. No plans for the kids for their Friday off of school? Also on May 18 we will host a kids’ movie day. From 1 p.m.- 3 p.m. enjoy Camp Cool Kids, and from 3:30 p.m.- 5:30 p.m. enjoy The Horse Dancer. And course there will be popcorn.

Love crafting but don’t have a big budget? On May 31 there’s another edition of our adult crafting series where we will create Sharpie drink coasters, both colourful and elegant. Want a fun place to get all your ideas onto paper? Also on May 31, bring a pen/ pencil, paper and your creativity and join the Stettler Writers’ Club. Both events start at 6:30 p.m.

Just for a quick update on the read and rhyme program, while Lindsay is away, we will run the program on Friday mornings from 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Come join us for songs, crafts and different activities every week. This program is for ages infant to five, with no registration required.
