‘Special teen night’ set for library

Crafts are something that we love at the Stettler Public Library.

Crafts are something that we love at the Stettler Public Library. The second half of November is full of opportunity for all members of the family to engage in crafty pursuits.

Something Cool after School is making sushi this week. But our sushi is different and has nothing to do with raw fish. Join us today at 4 p.m. for All Things Sushi and to make sushi just out of felt or candy. Stop in and have some culinary fun.

In celebration of the release of The Amazing Spiderman on DVD, we will host a special teen night, with a chance to watch the movie, fill up on popcorn and make a Spiderman wallet. Mark Friday, Nov. 30, at 6 p.m. on your calendar so that you can take part in this fun-filled night. Also, come and check out our superheroes display of graphic novels, books and movies.

I know that everyone is excited to get that Christmas tree up and decorated. To help you on your way, the library presents All Things Ornamental: A Sneak Peek at Craftapalooza. ATO is a tree-decoration extravaganza this Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m. This is a great way to keep the kids entertained when you stop in at the Sharebear Christmas Bazaar.

Books are available for the December gatherings of our two book clubs: Readers’ Circle and Brain Candy. “Sarah’s Key” will be discussed by the members of Readers’ Circle, which meets Thursday, Dec. 6. “Water for Elephants” is the book for Brain Candy members, who meet on Tuesday, Dec. 4. Both meetings are at 7:30 p.m.

The date for the full-fledged Craftapalooza has been set. Celebrate the season on Saturday, Dec. 8, from 1 to 4 p.m. with a variety of Christmas crafts, some cocoa and a visit with Santa Claus. This is a great way to spend a winter afternoon.

Christmas is coming fast, so why not make your shopping easy? Library memberships are gifts that keep giving throughout the entire year and that the whole family can enjoy. You can also make a donation to the library in honour of a special someone. It’s tax-deductible and is great for those who are hard to buy for. Stop in and discuss your Christmas options with a staff member.

I also have an early Christmas gift for those of you who use Freading to download e-books to your readers. The weekly allotment of tokens has increased from four to six, effective immediately. Your e-library experience has now expanded to allow for more e-books to be checked out per week.

That is all for this week. For updates check our website at spl.prl.ab.ca, follow @stettlerlibrary on Twitter, or “like” the Stettler Public Library on Facebook.
