Quilting comes to Stettler library

There is only one week left of this fabulous summer program.

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — There is only one week left of this fabulous summer program. Can you believe that this great summer has been passing by so quickly? Time really travels when you’re having fun at the library. Thanks to the fabulous kids at the summer reading program, both the monkeys and lions have had their ice cream parties. Keep up the awesome reading

Did you know that there are fun activities at the library for ages six to eight, nine to 12, and 13+? Come and join us at Gardening, Teen Cooking Club, and Make and Create. We’ll explore lots of fun activities with all ages. Also, with each Friday comes a fun-packed all-ages activity. For more information on any of the programs happening at the library, stop in and see us at the library, or check our Facebook page for daily and weekly schedules. Our goal is to have fun, build social and literary skills in preparation for the fall.

We have lots of fun activities planned for this week, like building rocket ships, experimenting with eggs, and making homemade cards for someone special. Hope to see you there.

How much do you know about making balloon dogs? Cats? Giraffes? Join us Friday, Aug. 19 at 2 p.m. to learn to make balloon animals like the pros do. Pre-registration is encouraged for this event contact us at 403-742-2292, or visit at the library to register.

Having difficulty understanding your phone, tablet, e-reader, or computer? Get one-on-one assistance with the device of your choice at the library. The next session of this Tech Time will be held on Thursday, Aug. 18 from 1 to 3 p.m. Please contact us at 403-742-2292 if you’d like to set up an appointment for a specific time.

Have you always wanted to try quilting but you don’t know where to start? Why not start at the Stettler Public Library on Tuesdays (Sept. 6 to Oct. 11) at 6 p.m until 8 p.m. Jean Dyck will be back to teach you how to make a beautiful quilt from scratch. Please call the library for a list of supplies needed and to register; maximum of six people.

The Film Circuit is back and we have expanded from six movies to eight. Our season starts on Monday, Sept. 5 at 7 p.m. at the Jewel Theatre with “Sing Street”. Sing Street takes us back to 1980s Dublin as seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy looking for a break from a troubled home and school life. Joyful, nostalgic, and heartwarming, Sing Street shows us a world where music has the power to take us away from the turmoil of everyday life and transform us into something greater. Get your full or half season passes today at the library. Single movie tickets may be purchased at the Jewel Theatre on the night of the film showing.

Additional activities may require pre-registration, so keep checking spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for information on all the fun and learning going on at the library. Do you have an idea for something you want to do or see at the library? Let us know. We hope to see you all at the library soon.
