Readers go one on one with ‘The Boy’ author

.

Literally Yours

Read and Rhyme Play Time is back to the delight of children up to ages five — and their big people. Join Sarah on Wednesdays and Alexis on Fridays at 10:30 a.m. on both days for songs, rhymes and playtime. Everyone is welcome and there is no charge to attend.

For children who are looking for something to do after school while their brothers or sisters are swimming, skating or playing hockey, the Stettler Public Library has the perfect way to pass the time. Something Cool After School is aimed at school-aged children who like games, crafts and maybe the occasional story or two, and takes place on Wednesdays from 4 to 5 p.m.

If you cannot make it to Stettler, Something Cool After School is also offered on Fridays at the Erskine School Library from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Have you ever wanted the opportunity to discuss a book with the author? The Stettler Public Library and our One Book, One Stettler program allows you that opportunity. Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. when Betty Jane Hegerat comes and we discuss her book “The Boy.”

There will be snacks and lively conversation. If you have not had the chance to read “The Boy” yet, call us at 403-742-2292 and we will place a hold on the book for you. However, do not hesitate to come, even if you haven’t read the book.

Alberta Arts Days are Sept. 30 to Oct. 2 and to celebrate the occasion, the library is planning a special art exhibit. Local resident Carol Verhoeven will display her photographs and we will also have a display of Alberta authors to tempt you. Come and celebrate the wonders that Alberta arts have to offer.

Readers’ Circle plans to discuss the novel “People of the Book” on Thursday, Oct. 6 at 7:30 p.m. Copies of the book are available at the library and we hope you will come for a cup of tea and some lively debate.

October is Canadian Library Month and the Stettler Public Library is offering Food for Fines. For each non-perishable food item donated to the library, $1 in fines owed to the library will be forgiven for the entire month.

The library is looking for a few good men or women who believe that libraries are important and who would like to play a role in the future of the library by serving on the library board. If you are interested, apply at the town office in Stettler or at the County of Stettler office. We would love to have your input.

Note that the library will be closed on Monday, Oct. 3, for staff professional development. Also, the dates have been set for the annual Friends of the Library’s Giant Book Sale.

Be sure to mark Nov. 11 and 12 on your calendars. More information on the book sale will be coming in future issues of the Library News.

If you have any questions, contact us at 403-742-2292, or check out our website at http://spl.prl.ab.ca.
