School ‘PD’ day is covered at Stettler Library

Nov. 3 is International Games Day

November begins next week and the month is jam-packed with so many wonderful programs that it will be difficult to keep track of it all.

Friday November 3 is PD Day at both the Clearview School Division and Christ King so we have a lot to keep the kids busy.

First off, did you know that November 3 is International Games Day and the Stettler Public Library is celebrating it with a full day of video games and board games? Everyone is welcome but if you are going stay the day, I would recommend you bring a lunch.

Remembrance Day is just around the corner and it is a very important holiday. We will be doing crafts and activities to commemorate this significant day on Friday November 3 from 1 to 3 p.m. Everyone is welcome!

Saturday November 4 is also full of programming goodness. First of all, our monthly Pokémon Swap Meet will be meeting at 10:30 a.m. to noon. Join Jasper and friends to play, swap and battle your Pokémon at the library.

The space is limited so you better register quickly for the Kids Cooking Club also on November 4 from 10:30 a.m. On the menu is Orange and Grape Tortellini Salad or Tuna Tortellini Salad, followed by Ambrosia for dessert. Yum! Remember that is for ages 6 to 11.

And finally on November 4 is the monthly beginner Super Smash Bros. Tournament for ages 5-12. Beginning at 12 p.m., you can join the fun and challenge your friends for Smash Bros supremacy!

Bring your friends to the Film Circuit’s showing of “The Glass Castle” starring Oscar winner Brie Larson and Woody Harrelson. Chronicling the adventures of an eccentric, resilient and tight-knit family, this movie is a remarkable story of unconditional love. Larson brings Jeannette Wall’s best-selling memoir to life as a young woman who, influenced by the joyfully wild nature of her deeply dysfunctional father (Harrelson), found the fiery determination to carve out a successful life on her own terms. This movie will be shown at the Jewel Theatre on Monday November 6 at 7 pm. Tickets are $10 and available at the door. We hope to see you there!

The Stettler Public Library will be closed on Saturday November 11 to honour the sacrifice of all of those who fought for our peace and freedom.
