New service at Stettler Public Library brings bagful of books to interested readers

The Stettler Public Library wants everybody to enjoy the wonders of what the library has to offer. But what if you don’t have the time to stop in and browse the shelves to find something to read? We have the solution for you.

GO! Bags are the newest service provided the library to help make your life a little easier. By simply requesting a GO! Bag, the staff can have a bag of books picked and signed out to you by noon the next business day. Here is how it works:

Visit our website at http://spl.prl.ab.ca and click on the GO! logo on the left-hand side of the page. This will take you to the GO! Bag request form. You simply answer all the questions on the request form. The staff checks for requests every morning. If you request a GO! Bag on Thursday night, it will be ready for pick by Friday at noon. The bag can be picked up at the library or at the front desk of the Stettler Recreation Centre. You choose.

To take advantage of the wonders of the GO! Bag service, you need a valid library card. That only takes a few minutes with the help of our circulation staff.

You cannot request a specific title with the GO! Bag service because we can’t guarantee that the book will be available right when you would want it. Just let us know what genre you like to read like thriller, paranormal romance, or young adult fiction. We will make sure that the bag is full of the types of books that you enjoy. The bag is signed out to you for a six-week block giving you lots of time to enjoy.

If you don’t have access to the internet to use our GO! Bag request form, call us at 403-742-2292. We can offer you the same service via the telephone.

Our book clubs are in full swing after our successful first gatherings this past week. If you are interested in attending Reader’s Circle or Brain Candy Book Club in October, copies of the books are available here at the Stettler Public Library.

Storytime begins again on Saturday, Sept. 11 at 11 a.m. Join us for stories and crafts for children ages 4 and up. It is a drop-in program and everybody is welcome.
