Spooktacular fun at Agriplex

Today is the big day! Join the staff of the Stettler Public Library for the Halloween Fun-Raiser at the Agriplex pavilion from 5 to 9 p.m

It’s that time of year again. Trick-or-treaters hit the streets this Thursday night for Halloween celebrations

Today is the big day! Join the staff of the Stettler Public Library for the Halloween Fun-Raiser at the Agriplex pavilion from 5 to 9 p.m. for an evening of spooktacular fun.

The cost is $10/child at the door (adult admission is free) and the kids get a candy bag with admission. There will be a concession, crafts, games, glitter tattoos and a photo booth and some of the stations will have a nominal fee of 25 cents. There are some huge prizes, including 2 Nintendo 2DS’s.

A great way for the kids to show off their costumes without the parkas and snow pants and support your local library!

The Stettler Public Library has a night out for the ladies! Mark Friday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. on your calendar and come to the Bubbles and Bling Ladies Night at the Stettler Legion Hall. Tickets are $20 each and the proceeds go to furnishing the newly renovated library.

There will be champagne, desserts, prizes, photo booth and an auction. Your purchased ticket is your chance to win a lovely diamond pennant donated by Lawlor Jewelry!

Tickets are available at the library, so grab them quickly because you don’t want to miss out on your chance to have a great night out while supporting the public library.

Are your kids looking for something a little different? Try this: Just Joking runs on Tuesdays at 6 p.m. and will teach the art of jokes and storytelling. The skills and jokes that the kids learn will be put on display every alternate week when the kids do a show at the various seniors’ lodges. If you have any questions about this program, contact Jennifer Taylor at 403-742-5101.

Between the Covers Book Club is back on Friday, Nov. 1, at 6 pm when we get together to rave about our favourite reads of the summer. Our next Reader’s Circle pick, Wolf Hall, is available for pick for anyone who wants to join us on Thursday, Nov. 7, at 7:30 p.m.

Until our Library is completely renovated, we have changed our hours at the mini version of the Stettler Public Library. The hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Thursday from 10 am to 8 pm with Sunday being closed. If you have any questions or concerns about this, contact us at 403-742-2292.

Tutoring with Elaine is back on Tuesdays from 5 to 6 p.m. to help people of any age with homework issues. She will help you map out solutions that allow you to understand school concepts.

Morgan is back with Teen Night on Saturday Nov. 9, from 1 to 6 p.m. It is an afternoon full of terms that I don’t understand but any gamer will know.

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact the library at 403-742-2292 or for updates on our programs check our website at www.spl.prl.ab.ca or friend the Stettler Public Library on Facebook.
