Stettler Public Library has big LEGO movie day Dec. 27

NERF War 5 planned for library before New Years

It is the first official day of winter and it is looking kind of brown to me. Where is the white Christmas that Bing always sings about? I know that I’m dreaming of a white Christmas while I’m hunkered down in my home with a good book and a wonderful cup of tea. But if you want to get out of the house, check out the programs we have going during Christmas break.

First of all a quick note that the Stettler Public Library will be closed on Monday December 25, Tuesday December 26 and Monday January 1 so that we can enjoy the holidays. The board and staff of the Stettler Public Library wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe Christmas break.

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 candle holder that they can give to a very special person. Join us at 10:30 a.m. to create that wonderful last minute gift.

On Wednesday December 27, we are celebrating LEGO Movie Day! Join us at 12:30 p.m. for the classic LEGO movie “LEGO Batman Movie” followed by the “LEGO Ninjango Movie”. Remember that we always serve popcorn.

We continue on with LEGO theme with the LEGO Tower Challenge on Thursday, December 28 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Are you a master LEGO engineer? Bring your friends and challenge them to see who can build the strongest and best LEGO Tower!

We will also try to build a tower with balloons on Thursday December 28 from 2 and 4 p.m. Can you build a tower using only balloons? Come and teach us how to do it at the Balloon Tower Challenge.

LEGO makes another appearance on Friday December 29 from 2 to 4 p.m. Create art using markers and a LEGO vehicle during “LEGO Wheelies”.

We are gathering strength for NERF War 5 on Friday December 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. Bring your own weaponry and eye protection and the library will be the battleground. Call the Library at 403-742-2292 to pre-register and register soon as space is limited.

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 $35.00 for 4 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!
