STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — It is almost the middle of February and we have some great events that you can participate in to show your love of families and sweet stuff.
There is lots of room for you to join us on Thursday, Feb. 11 at 4 p.m. to make a Hug in a Mug for Valentine’s Day. Decorate a mug with chalkboard paint, fill it with homemade hot chocolate mix, and craft a gorgeous card for someone special. Pre-registration is recommended.
Little people, bring your big people on Friday, Feb. 12 at 10:30 a.m. for a Read & Rhyme Special Event: All the People I Love. Ages up to five are invited to join Kayla for a morning filled with fun Valentine’s activities, including cookie decorating.
I was talking about sweet stuff and we get to create wonderful things with whipped cream on Saturday, Feb. 13 at 10:30 a.m. during a cake decorating primer with Ben Huo. It is open to all ages but you must pre-register at 403-742-2292. Nothing says Valentine’s Day better than sugar.
We are going to get crafty on Tuesday, Feb. 16 from 1 to 4 p.m. during Hula Hoop Weaving. Learn how to make a colourful rag rug or a wall hanging using only a hula hoop, a bunch of old t-shirts and a pair of scissors. Participants may also bring t-shirts or hula hoops of their own. This is geared towards ages nine to adult. Please pre-register at 403-742-2292.
Join us on Thursday, Feb. 18 at 1 p.m. for Tech Time for Seniors. Bring in your computer, tablet, phone, eReader, camera or other device and we’ll help you figure it out.
It’s time to continue crocheting with Crystal on Saturday, Feb. 20 at 10:30 a.m. You can continue working on the fabulous blanket you started in January or learn to crochet a Minecraft Creeper tuque the traditional way (with a crochet hook). For the tuque you will need one skein of green worsted yarn, a small amount of black worsted yarn, a 5.5 mm crochet hook, scissors and a yarn needle. Everyone is welcome.
The film circuit is coming to a close for the season on Monday, March 7 at 7 p.m. Come to the Jewel Theatre to see the Icelandic film “Rams”. It tells the story of a remote farming valley, where two brothers who haven’t spoken in 40 years (their communications are carried out via letters carried by one brother’s dog) have to come together in order to save what’s dearest to them – their sheep.
This is a quick reminder that the library will be closed on Monday, Feb. 15 in celebration of Family Day. We will reopen on Tuesday, Feb. 16 at 10 a.m.
And remember to save the date for Beyond the Bling! It’s going to be an evening of Hawaiian fun at the library with food, drinks, a 50-50 draw and more. Advance tickets are available at the library.
