No one should be without a good book – Literally Yours

Howdy, Stettlerites.

Just a heads-up to advise that our library’s online catalogue will not be available Aug. 15 and 16 due to a system upgrade going on. Sorry for any inconvenience that might cause!

Also, we are expanding our outreach programs — if you are stuck at home, sick, or can’t get out of the house, give us a call and our outreach coordinator Michelle will bring books straight to your door. Because no one should be without a good book to read!

This Friday, we will be walking in the parade for the Summer Reading Program and we need participants to come out and walk with us.

Dress up as a pirate, put on your walking shoes, and come join us at 2 p.m. at the Stettler Agricultural Grounds.

We’ll be holding a big Stettler Public Library banner!

This Thursday, we are lucky enough to have the awesome young adult author Judith Graves skyping with us — any teens interested in chatting with her about her books, being an author, or young adult books in general, are invited to come by at 5 p.m.

For the rest of this week, we have really fun stuff planned — check our schedule of activities at our website under the “kids” link. And Thursday night at 6 o’clock we’re watching The Blues Brothers — all teens are welcome to come and bring their own snacks!
