Christmas is only 15 days away and the calendar at the Stettler Public Library is packed with events for the whole family.

There are only two Wednesdays of Crafts ’til Christmas left for the kids to make their gifts for teachers, parents, grandparents and more. Join us on Wednesday, Dec. 9 and Dec. 16 at 4 p.m. for an after school hour of crafting fun.

Kids ages 0-5 should bring their big people to enjoy some Winter Magic on Friday, Dec. 11 at 10:30 a.m. for December’s Read & Rhyme special event. Join Kayla for some amazing winter crafts and activities for ages 0-5. It will be a great time for everyone.

Christmas can’t be all about peace and joy, so on Friday, Dec. 11 our Holiday Horror Double Bill (A Christmas Horror Story at 6 p.m. and Black Christmas at 8 p.m.) will thrill and frighten instead. Here is the lowdown on the two movies: A Christmas Horror Story “It’s the season of joy, peace, and goodwill… unless you live in Bailey Downs. Last Christmas Eve, two teens came to a grisly end in a school basement. Now, one year later, a new set of horrors has come to town—a malevolent spirit, Krampus, the demonic anti-Santa Claus, and a horde of zombie elves make this a holiday no one will ever forget.” – Rotten Tomatoes; Black Christmas “A murderous fiend gives the residents of a sorority house a very scary Christmas by decking the halls with their blood and body parts in this early slasher film.” – Rotten Tomatoes. Both movies are rated R. Come enjoy them with snacks.

On Saturday, Dec. 12 at 1 p.m., we are pleased to present Miss Rhonda’s Little Dancers. Join the littlest dancers from Danceology as they celebrate the Christmas season. And after the wonderful performance, stick around the same day from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. for Craftapalooza, our annual craft extravaganza for all ages. Enjoy the afternoon making gifts and decorations for the holidays.

Thursday, Dec. 17 1 p.m. marks the last Tech Time for Seniors in 2015. Bring in your computer, tablet, phone, eReader, camera or other device and we’ll help you figure it out.

And last but not least for this week, the Stettler Public Library is pleased to present our second annual Holiday Movie Marathon on Saturday, Dec. 19 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Come see family favourites all day. Popcorn will be served.

Please take note of our holiday hours. We will be closing at 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve and we will reopen on Monday, Dec. 28 at 10 a.m. We’ll then be closing at 4 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and we’ll reopen in 2016 on Saturday. Jan. 2 for our regular hours.

Keep an eye out for additional activities on our website (spl.prl.ab.ca) and Facebook page. And if you have an activity you’d like to do/see at the library, feel free to approach us.
