October month of pumpkin at library

Watch for future pumpkin-flavoured programs

By Crystal Friars LIT Assistant Stettler Library Manager

Have you got your pumpkins yet because it is the Month of the Pumpkin? Yes, I am calling October the Month of the Pumpkin because if you aren’t eating them, then you’re decorating them. Watch for future pumpkin-flavoured programs but, for now, here is what is coming in the next week.

The Stettler Public Library will be closed on Oct. 8 so that the staff can enjoy Thanksgiving with their families. Have a safe holiday weekend.

On Oct. 5’s the school’s professional development day is covered at the Stettler Public Library. We are digging out the Perler beads and you can use your imagination to create something to decorate your room, desk or locker. Ages eight and up are invited to join us at 1 p.m. for some intense crafting.

Do you need something for the kids to do while you are doing last minute Thanksgiving shopping or baking? Send them to the Library on Oct. 6 for the Super Smash Bros. Gaming Tournament at 1 p.m. Battle your friends for Super Smash Bros. supremacy. And if you miss this one, there will be another battle on Oct. 20.

Do you play the ukulele or are you interested in learning how? The ukulele is a great instrument, just four strings, super portable, and enjoying increased popularity these days. Paul McCartney even plays the ukulele during his concerts. Dig your ukulele out and join us on Oct. 10 at 6:30 for a night of music at the library. If you don’t have one, we will have a couple on hand for you to try. If you are an expert or a beginner, all are welcome.

Our Adult Crafting series continues on Oct. 11 at 6:30 p.m. This time we are travelling to Hogwarts and we are going to celebrate the world of Harry Potter with Perler beads. Show your love with Harry Potter coasters or a keychain.

Our Teen Scene on Oct. 12 at 4:30 p.m. will get creative with Perler beads. Come and make your own unique ear-bud holder and cord wrapper. It’s open to everyone in Grades 7 and up.

Are you looking for a book club but don’t know where to find one? Check out the Stettler Public Library! 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.

Are you obsessed with Pokemon to the point that you can’t get enough? The Stettler Public Library is the place for you to be on Wednesdays at 4:30 p.m. Join Jasper for the Pokemon Swap Meet. Bring your friends and your cards and play, battle, and trade your favourite Pokemon.

A reminder that we have two family passes for the Stettler Recreation Centre that you can request. If you would like to put your name on the wait list let us know.

That is just a slice of the pie. Call us at 403-742-2292 for more information on any of the services that we offer. For more information, check out our website at spl.prl.ab.ca and follow us on Facebook.
