Prepare for Gaming Tournament

Spring is a time for renewal and we’re feeling refreshed at the Stettler Public Library.

Spring is a time for renewal and we’re feeling refreshed at the Stettler Public Library. The ladies of Stettler have been rejuvenated with bubbles and bling this past Saturday night. Congratulations to the winner of the diamond pendant donated by Lawlor Jewellery— Rachel Weible! The kids’ comic book collection got a refresh with Free Comic Book Day and now it is time for the community’s soul to get a touch-up with a workshop presented by the Stettler Public Library and the Stettler United Church.

On Thursday May 8 at 6:30 pm, you are invited to attend “Writing Through Grief and Loss” with author Ray McGinnis. At this workshop, Mr. McGinnis will lead us in reflecting on, and addressing, the grief and loss of someone or something meaningful—a person, a relationship, a job, a pet, etc. No previous writing experience is necessary. To register, call the library at 403-742-2292.

All you gamers are invited to the Stettler Public Library’s second annual Get Ready to Rumble Gaming Tournament on Saturday, May 17. Registration for this intense tournament begins at 11 a.m. The realms of combat are Street Fighter 4, Smash Bros., Pokemon, Call of Duty, Marvel vs. Capcom, Injustice, and MTG. There will be prizes for the triumphant and snacks for everyone else.

Copies of our next Reader’s Circle selection “The Casual Vacancy” by J.K. Rowling are available at the Stettler Public Library. Read Rowling’s adult debut and join us for lively discussion on Thursday June 5 at 7:30 p.m.

Is LEGO your life? We have the club for you. Starting on Saturday, June 7 and meeting on each Saturday afternoon from 1 to 4 p.m. is LEGO Club. It is your turn to be creative and inventive. Join us for group builds and individual mastery using the colorful plastic brick. If you have any LEGO that your family is no longer using, the Stettler Public Library will gladly take it off your hands.

Currently the Stettler Public Library is working on its Plan of Service and we need your help. The purpose of the Plan of Service is to fulfill our requirements as a library and to produce a working document that gives us vision and focus to meet the needs of our community for a three-year period. Right now we are working on the needs assessment survey of the plan. This is a way of asking community members what they see as the most important needs the community.

The question that we would like to ask you is “What is your greatest wish for Stettler in the future?” Message us on Facebook at, contact us Twitter @stettlerlibrary.
