New Years Eve party at Stettler library

Stettler Library will be closed New Years Day

Submitted by Crystal Friars

I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and are now looking forward to the New Year. We have a lot planned for the kids during the holiday break. Check out what’s coming up.

Everybody has a New Year’s Eve Party and the Stettler Public Library doesn’t want the kids to feel that there is no party for them. So we are having a New Year’s Eve Party on Saturday December 30 from 2 to 4 p.m. Come and make a noise maker and a party hat and we will have to tunes going! We even have a disco ball!

The Stettler Public Library will be closed on Monday January 1, 2018 so that the staff can ring in the New Year.

On Tuesday January 2 it is Cars Movie Day at the Stettler Public Library. Join Lightning McQueen and Mater at 12:30 p.m. when we show “Cars”. We then follow that up with “Cars 3” at 3 p.m. And yes, there will be popcorn!

I love things that make stuff fly through the air and our next three programs have that in abundance. First off is the Catapults Challenge on Wednesday January 3 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Can you build a catapult that will launch something the farthest or the highest? Here is your chance to find your hidden talent.

Next up the kids are going to make Helicopters Made of Paper on Thursday January 4 from 12 to 1:30 p.m. A great way to explore flight and aerodynamics. Plus things are flying through the air.

We follow that up with Airplanes Made of Paper also on Thursday from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Spend the afternoon being an aeronautics engineer and a test pilot. More things flying through the air!

We have confirmation of our first movie for the winter half of the TIFF Film Circuit on Monday January 8, 2018 at the Jewel Theatre. I’m so excited about the movie “Loving Vincent”. In a story depicted in oil painted animation, a young man comes to the last hometown of painter Vincent van Gogh to deliver the troubled artist’s final letter and ends up investigating his final days there. Watch the trailer because it looks gorgeous. Passes for the second half of season are on sale at the library for $35 for four movies. It makes a wonderful Christmas gift.

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!
