Next Wednesday library honours volunteers with an open house, don’t forget to join us for a coffee – Literally Yours

Sean, Bobbie and Patty have arrived and are already putting their stamp on the activity level at the Stettler Public Library. There is much happening right now at your local library that you should stop by and see.

Sean, Bobbie and Lindsey will be delivering the most fun summer of activities that the Stettler Public Library has ever presented. There will be programs for kids from grades one to 12 and there will be a little bit of everything to keep everyone entertained. So far, there will be teens being reading buddies for small people, blogs, Twitter accounts, Facebook, reading circles and craft hours with many more ideas soon to come forth. Bobbie and Sean will be visiting the schools in June and they will be armed with a completed schedule of activities for the summer.

Our summer programs are also canvassing the community for prize donations for the summer program “Splash”. If you are interested in contributing to the program, you can contact Sean or Bobbie at 403-742-2292 or you can drop off the prizes at the Stettler Public Library.

Friend “Stettler Bibliotheque” on Facebook to get frequent updates on this year’s summer program plans as well as any other activities happening at the Stettler Public Library. You can also find any programming information at our website at http://spl.prl.ab.ca.

One of the most daunting tasks that anyone can do in a library is inventory. The Stettler Public Library has over 23,000 items in our collection and each book, audiobook, DVD and game has to be checked for condition, proper location on the shelf and accuracy in the catalogue. The person in charge of this very important and daunting challenge is Patty, our mistress of anything that we throw at her. If you see her lurking around the stacks, thank her for her hard work because our goal this summer is to have a clean, healthy collection from which to borrow.

The Stettler Public Library is looking for a sponsor to help finance free Handibus rides to and from the library for the seniors and physically challenged of the community. If you or your business is interested in sponsoring this service, please contact us at 403-742-2292. Your name will be placed prominently on all advertising for the service and you will receive a tax receipt for your donation. Please help us continue this service.

Are you looking for something fun to do as a family? Why not come to the Stettler Public Library to see a movie. Bring your own snack and join us on Tuesday, May 17 for Justin Bieber: Never Say Never and on Tuesday, May 24 for Gnomeo and Juliet. Show time for both movies is 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. If you can’t make these showings, the Stettler Public Library will be adding these movies to our collection.

The Stettler Public Library is holding an open house and volunteer appreciation event on Wednesday, May 18 from 2 to 8 p.m. We invite you to come and take a look around to see what the library has to offer. There will be tours, coffee and snacks throughout the day.

You can also join us at 7 p.m. when we honour the volunteers that help make this library the wonderful place that it is. We would love to see you.
