Stettler library helping food bank through ‘Food for Fines’

Kids won’t want to miss Pokémon Dec. 9

Submitted by Crystal Friars

Christmas can be such a stressful time of year for everyone so the Stettler Public Library wants to help with that. We have events to keep everyone entertained and now we are celebrating the festive season with Food for Fines.

Food for Fines is our annual helping hand for the Stettler Food Bank. Instead of paying for your fines, we ask that you bring non-perishable food items to pay off those overdue items. We will be running this program for the months of December and January. Help yourself while you help the community! We want to fill the shopping cart several times over!

On December 7 join After School with Darlene for Trees and Trimming at 3:30 p.m. Enjoy the story “The Christmas Cobwebs” and create the animal that everyone thinks of at Christmas: a spider.

Pokémon doesn’t take a break during the holiday season and neither should you! Join us for the Pokémon Swap Meet on Saturday December 9 at 10:30 a.m. Meet your friends at the library and play, battle and trade for your favorite Pokémon.

There are only a few spots left to build your own Christmas House during the Kids Cooking Club on Wednesday December 13 at 6 p.m. Please pre-register by calling the library at 403-742-2292.

This is the best time to join our Cookbook Club! Join us on Monday December 11 at 6:30 p.m. for a Baking Swamp. Bring your favourite Christmas baking and swap with other members to create a fabulous treat tray! New members are always welcome!

We have confirmation of our first movie for the winter half of the TIFF Film Circuit on Monday January 8, 2018 at the Jewel Theatre. I’m so excited about the movie “Loving Vincent”. In a story depicted in oil painted animation, a young man comes to the last hometown of painter Vincent van Gogh to deliver the troubled artist’s final letter and ends up investigating his final days there. Watch the trailer because it looks gorgeous. Passes for the second half of season are on sale at the library for $35 for four movies. It makes a wonderful Christmas gift.

As always, for the most updated information please check spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for news of any other neat events and activities!
