STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY -- So much is happening at the Stettler Public Library this month that I'm sure you'll find something of interest.

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — So much is happening at the Stettler Public Library this month that I’m sure you’ll find something to interest you no matter what age you are. And remember to bring a friend because the more, the merrier.

Tech Time happens on Thursday,April 21 at 1 p.m. You can bring in your computer, tablet, phone, eReader, camera or other device and we’ll give you one-on-one help with it. You can also call and schedule an appointment with a staff member on another day.

On Saturday, April 23 at 10:30 a.m., Crystal is going to teach us how to make gorgeous crocheted lace trim. If you’ve ever wondered how to crochet, visit us on Saturday; Crystal is an expert.

Also on Saturday, April 23 at 1 p.m. you can come and create a whimsical monster note holder to “take a bite” out of school notes, invitations, art work and even your mom’s dish towel. What a great way to spend the afternoon.

The weather has been great, spring is in the air and everyone wants to get outside. On Saturday, April 30 at 1 p.m., Katie Bullick of the Buffalo Lake Naturalists will be talking about upland birds in the Stettler area. Our region is home to numerous species of wildlife. This presentation will focus on species of upland birds, including songbirds, raptors, owls, upland game birds and species at risk, that can be observed in our area. Suggested birding areas will be pointed out as well as the different types of bird surveys that are undertaken each year by the Buffalo Lake Naturalists. I can see many picnic lunches in people’s futures.

The Stettler Public Library is so pleased to welcome local author Carole Lauweryssen on Wednesday, May 4 at 7 p.m. for a very special evening where she discusses her book, Unspeakable Gift. Join one woman’s heartwarming, spiritual journey as she reunites with her biological family after 30 years, finding new roots and the promise of true completeness. Refreshments will be served.

There’s a cookbook club starting at the library. We’d meet on a Monday night for a potluck dinner with a different cookbook selected each month. In order to proceed, we need a firm commitment from five or more patrons. Let’s meet up on Monday, May 16 at 6:15 p.m. for dinner. Please RSVP by email to spl@prl.ab.ca.

Keep an eye out for additional activities on our website (spl.prl.ab.ca) and Facebook page. And if you have an activity you’d like to do/see at the library, feel free to approach us.
