Literally Yours

We are very sad to announce that the best librarian in the world is leaving Stettler and heading out to grace the Camrose Public Library with her wonderful presence. Deborah’s last day here will be this Friday. We invite everyone to visit between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Thursday to have tea and say goodbye to her. We hope to be joined by a fantastic new librarian very soon.

Our summer reading program came to a close last Friday with a hilarious fun time frolicking at the water park. Everybody left with a beautiful new book to read (thanks to the Stettler Kinettes), a shiny new water bottle, and a smile on their face.

A total of 1,796 kids and teens participated this year — a record number for the Stettler Public Library.

The teens also ventured to the water park and had a frolic. Some of them are pretty ruthless with the water guns.

Congratulations to Jill Higgins, who won a Kobo e-reader. We’re all jealous of her.

Thanks to everyone who came out this summer and participated — we had an absolute blast.

Regular programming resumes in September. See our website (http://spl.prl.ab.ca) for all of the details. Remember, most of our programs are free of charge.

Have a wondrous fall season.
