Open new doors at the library

Library Corner for Jan. 12, 2023

Have you ever wanted to learn sign language or how to cut hair? Has your secret dream been to start a business, become a violinist, or simply to learn to identify the birds that visit your back yard?

At the library, we have resources on all these pursuits and many more. One of our programs may satisfy your interest, or we can refer you to online courses for at-home learning to suit your available schedule.

If a career in trades interests you, the team from Powering Trades are coming back Tue, Jan. 17 from 10-3 p.m. to meet anyone interested in exploring a new career. Find out all about trades, supply chain program, or accounting and admin skills training.

Come in today to find out what we can do for you. And remember, library memberships are free of charge if you live in the town or county of Stettler, one of your best bargains ever.
