Stettler Public Library aims to lighten spirits during holiday season

Food for Fines is annual helping hand for Stettler Food Bank

By Crystal Friars Stettler Public Library

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!

Our annual Christmas crafting bonanza is back! Join us on Saturday December 16 from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. for Craftapalooza 2017! This is a drop-in event where the kids can make anything “Christmas-y:” cards, ornaments and gifts! Ages 6 and up can get their Christmas on at the Stettler Public Library!

Also on Saturday December 16 is the Super Smash Bros. Monthly Tournament—Beginner Level. For ages 5 to 12, kids can come and challenge their friends to show off their smash skills starting at 12 pm. What a great way to spend the afternoon!

Have you registered yet for the Art Club on Tuesday December 19 from 4 to 6 p.m.? For ages 7 and up, we will exploring painting on a large canvas. At the end of the afternoon, you will have a masterpiece that your whole family will talk about or you can be the talk of the town and hang it at the Library.

If the kids are needing last minute Christmas gifts, they should come to The Night Before the Night Before Event at the Stettler Public Library. The kids will create a festive votive candleholder that they can give to a very special person. Join us at 10:30 a.m. to create that wonderful last minute gift.

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!
