No library card needed to enjoy Stettler’s programs

Cookbook Club gears up for Bountiful Harvest

By Crystal Friars Stettler Library

The Stettler Public Library has so much to offer and has the best entertainment value in town. Do you have a library card? Come and get one because they’re free. Yes, you heard that right: free. Nevertheless, you don’t need a library card to attend these free programs. Check this out.

Teens in Grade 7 to 12 are invited to join the Teen Scene at the Stettler Public Library. Our next teen event is Oct. 12 at 4:30 p.m. Come and make yourself a personalized ear-bud holder. Bring a friend!

Our next Kids’ Cooking Club is on Oct. 13 at 10:30 a.m. The kids (ages six to 11) are going to learn how to make some deliciously spooky treats just in time for Halloween. Spaces are limited so please pre-register by calling the Library at 403-742-2292.

If that doesn’t interest you, why not come and take a turn with the Library’s Virtual Reality system. Join Shaun at 12:30 p.m. and explore new worlds, play a game or just try new things (like a rollercoaster). The VR is a great tool in exploring the unknown.

Also on Oct. 13, the Brain Train will be stopping at the Stettler Public Library with the ingredients and the know-how to make pumpkin slime. Yes, I said “Pumpkin Slime!” Join us at 2 pm as the conductor teaches science while making it fun.

Everyone is welcome to come to our next Cookbook Club on Oct. 15 at 6:30 p.m. The theme is “Bountiful Harvest.” Bring your favourite harvest dish and enjoy dishes made by fellow attendees. If you need a recipe, come and check out the cookbook collection at the Stettler Public Library for inspiration.

We are taking registrations for the next Art Club on Oct. 16 at 4 p.m. Here the kids can learn to enjoy art while creating their own masterpieces. This program is open to children ages six and up. Please call the Library to register.

We have copies of the book selection for our inaugural book club discussion. Join us on Oct. 30 at 6:30 p.m. as we follow along with the Amnesty International’s Book Selection “The Break” by Katherena Vermette. Copies of the book are available at the library. Meet up with some like-minded new friends! Tea and coffee will be served because you can’t have a great conversation without a cuppa.

I’m sure that you all know the premise behind the tv show “Survivor.” Well, take those ideas and attach them to the Stettler Friends of the Library’s fundraiser: Christmas Wine Survivor. Come to the library armed with a bottle of wine (minimum wine value $15) and buy a ticket for $20. Then join us for the Elimination Party on Dec. 8 at 7:30 p.m. The last person standing wins 30 per cent of the wine collected. You will be ready for Christmas, New Year’s and a quiet night at home. Proceeds will purchase children’s play equipment at the library. Tickets are on sale now and rules are posted on the Stettler Public Library’s website (spl.prl.ab.ca).

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Call us at 403-742-2292 for more information on any of the services that we offer. Check out our website at spl.prl.ab.ca and follow us on Facebook.
