Preparing to welcome the man in red suit

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY -- The countdown to the man-in-the-red-suit's arrival is down to nine days.

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — The countdown to the man-in-the-red-suit’s arrival is down to nine days. The Stettler Public Library has some events coming up to help you get on the nice side of the big man. Check these out.

Thursday, Dec. 17 at 1 p.m. marks the last Tech Time for Seniors in 2015. Bring in your computer, tablet, phone, eReader, camera or other device and we’ll help you figure it out.

The library’s second annual Holiday Movie Marathon is on Saturday, Dec. 19 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Come see family favourites all day. Popcorn will be served.

For those of you looking for something to keep the kids entertained in the week after the jolly man’s visit, the library is the place to be. The kids can make, take, create and break things—a perfect way to get rid of excess energy. All these events require pre-registration. Call the library at 403-742-2292 to get in on the fun.

Join us on Monday, Dec. 28 at 1 p.m. for Rub-a-Dub-Dub. Bring items (your thumb, a plastic fish) to make molds of. Then create your own awesome custom soaps. Also make scented bath salts to go with your soap. Limit of 20 participants.

Your chance to be destructive happens on Tuesday, Dec. 29 at 1 p.m. with Take Apart Tuesday. Spend some time taking apart appliances and electronics to see what’s inside. Then build a fun model robot with the parts. Limit of 10 participants.

On Weevil Wednesday, Dec. 30 at 1 p.m., you will learn to solder. Have you ever seen a weevil? It’s a pretty under-appreciated beetle. We’re going to solder LED lights onto a metal weevil to make light-up eyes. Ages nine and up only. Limit of 10 participants. Please pre-register at the library.

Thursday Dec. 31 at 1 p.m. brings you Marble Mania. Make a LEGO marble run, a paper tube marble run and more. There are going to be so many items that you can make your marble run with that you might be here all day. Limit 15 participants.

The staff at the library likes to celebrate Fun Food Friday and we want everyone to join in. However we will be closed on Friday, Jan. 1, so we are going to have Food Science Saturday on Jan. 2 at 1 p.m. Make liquids into edible spheres, fizzy edible powders and more! Limit 15 participants.

Please take note of our holiday hours. We will be closing at 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve and we will reopen on Monday, Dec. 28 at 10 a.m. We will close at 4 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and reopen in 2016 on Saturday, Jan. 2 for our regular hours.

Keep an eye out for additional activities on our website (spl.prl.ab.ca) and Facebook page. And if you have an activity you’d like to do/see at the library feel free to approach us!
