Stettler library books in for Culture Days activities

The Stettler Public Library has been such a busy place that the staff can barely catch their breath.

The Stettler Public Library has been such a busy place that the staff can barely catch their breath.

We have been tidying our junior and young adult collections and we have discovered some buried treasures. The buried treasures are books that have not been signed out by an avid reader yet. Come and check out those treasures before they are lost for good. Also, there is some fantastic programming that will have you running to the library.

Alberta Culture Days is this weekend, Friday through Sunday, and the Stettler library will be in the thick of things, with a couple of wonderful displays and presentations.

The artists from the Heartland Youth Centre will display their art, beginning Thursday. Also, we are pleased to show a series of short films by Alberta artists, called “Prairie Tales 14,” on Saturday at 4 p.m.

We will also be having two special guests that day to answer any questions: Zoe Slusar and Bailey Kerluke, filmmakers whose short film is part of the series. Come and learn about the fascinating world of filmmaking.

The Stettler library is pleased to have author Fran Kimmel launch her book, “The Shore Girl,” on Wednesday, Oct. 3, at 7 p.m. Rebee Shore just wants to be a normal girl and have a place to call home. But her childhood is a disaster.

Fran will be reading from her new novel and answer questions about her writing. Copies of her book will be available for purchase and Fran will be pleased to sign your copy.

Read and Rhyme Play Time is back in time for fall. This program is designed for interaction between children and their big people, with lots of songs, rhymes and playtime. Read and Rhyme runs every Wednesday and Friday at 10:30 a.m.

Copies of the next books for the Brain Candy Book Club, Readers’ Circle and Spine Crackers are available at the Stettler library.

Brain Candy meets on Tuesday, Oct. 2, at 7:30 p.m. when the book “Still Alice” by Lisa Genova will be the topic of discussion and “Playing with the Ashes” by Elizabeth George will be the target of Readers’ Circle on Thursday, Oct. 4, at 7:30 p.m.

The teen book club Spine Crackers will discuss Roald Dahl’s “Skin and other stories” on Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 6 p.m.

Starting Oct. 9, the Stettler library is pleased to present a new club: Chicks with Sticks.

This is a club that requires two knitting needles and some yarn. Bring your project or come and learn to knit. We will have knowledgeable knitters on hand to help and the company will be fantastic.

Chicks with Sticks will meet the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, meaning Oct. 9 and 23. Those who crochet are welcome to join as well, and there will be help for you as well.

Something Cool After School is back to keep the kids entertained. Join Sarah on Fridays, starting this week at 2:30 p.m., at the Erskine School for an hour of crafts, games and tons of fun.

The library edition will take place on Wednesdays, starting on Oct. 10, at 4 p.m.

The Stettler library will be closed on Monday, Oct. 1, for professional development and on Monday, Oct. 8, for Thanksgiving.

October is Canadian Library Month and to celebrate this important event, the Stettler library will waive your fines in exchange for donations to the Stettler and District Food Bank. Food for Fines is a program in which everyone wins.

That is all for this week, but for updated information about the Stettler library’s programs, check our website at http://spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page — Stettler Bibliotheque.
