By Crystal Friars Stettler Library

Did you know that memberships at the Stettler Public Library are free for the citizens of the Town and County of Stettler? I’m sure that you have all made the resolution to visit your public library more and the next week is full of programs to amaze and delight you. Come to the Stettler Recreation Centre and check your library out.

The Stettler Public Library is very excited to be housed in the same building that will be hosting the 2019 Jiffy Lube Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts. The excitement is starting to build and we want to show our excitement so have the kids come for the next Brain Train on Jan. 19 at 2 p.m. The kids will be exploring the game of curling by building their own game and then create window banners to welcome curlers to Stettler. Maybe our banners will be seen on tv?

The Pokemon Swap Meets are back in January and this month join Jasper on Jan. 19 at 11 p.m. for a morning full of card trading, some snacks, and maybe you can win a few cards to boost your inventory. It is a great way to spend a cold morning at the Library.

Also on Jan.19 at 1 pm is our biweekly Smash Bros. Tournament. We just can’t get enough Smash Bros. and we are sure you can’t either. Everyone is welcome, age or skill doesn’t matter.
