Something Cool After School returns to Stettler

.

Literally Yours

The fall schedule at Stettler Public Library is still evolving, but we can get you started with a little something for everyone to help you get back into the fall swing of things.

Something Cool After School returns to Stettler Public Library on Wednesdays, starting today at 4 p.m. Intended for school-aged children, this is an hour of games, stories and crafts that will keep the kids entertained while their brothers or sisters are occupied with hockey, skating or swimming.

If your children cannot make it to the program at Stettler Public Library, Something Cool After School will bring its own brand of fun to Erskine School Library, starting Sept. 23 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Read and Rhyme Play Time is back to entertain children aged five and under — and their “big people.” Join Sarah on Wednesdays, starting Sept. 21, and Alexis on Fridays at 10:30 a.m. for songs, rhymes, games and playtime. There is no registration for any of our children’s program and the cost is free to all.

I am sure that you have seen the wonderful book wreaths that hang on the ends of our shelving units here at Stettler Public Library. Have you wanted to make one, but aren’t sure how to go about it?

Join us on Tuesday, Sept. 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. and you can make your own book wreath. The cost is $12 for a 14-inch wreath form, or $10 for a 12-inch form, and we will supply the books. Remember to bring your own glue gun and glue. Call the library at 403-742-2292 o register.

Have you read “The Boy” by Betty Jane Hegerat and was wishing that you could discuss it with Betty Jane herself? One Book, One Stettler gives you the opportunity to do just that.

Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 4, from 6 to 8 p.m., as Stettler Public Library welcomes Betty Jane and we discuss the book, book-club style. There will be a few special guests and some 50s-style snacks to help keep the conversation flowing.

Also stop in each week and answer a trivia question about “The Boy” and you have a chance at winning the complete Betty Jane Hegerat collection.

October is only a few weeks away and October is very special to us at Stettler Public Library. It is Canadian Library Month and the library likes to celebrate the month by helping others. You can help by participating in Food for Fines. For every non-perishable food item donated to the library, we will waive $1 off the fines that you might have accumulated on the books in the Stettler Public Library’s collection. We can help you while you help others.

Stettler Public 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 board. If you are interested, apply at the town office (if you live in Stettler) or at the County of Stettler office (for county residents). We would love to have your input.

One last quick announcement for this week: Stettler Public Library will be closed on Monday, Oct. 3, for staff professional development. If you have any questions, contact the library at 403-742-2292 or check out our website at http://spl.prl.ab.ca
