Stettler’s summer reading program comes to an end

Exceeded goal of 15,000 minutes

By Jordana Roller

And just like that, the Summer Reading Program has come to an end. We appreciate everyone who attended the program the last couple of months to join in all the fun.

Awesome job to all the busy readers who handed in reading logs all summer to not only help us reach our summer goal of 15,000 minutes but to exceed it. After reading more than 15,000 minutes, the celebratory pizza party was definitely well deserved.

We appreciate the wonderful parents who made an effort to bring their kids to the Library for the programs this summer. We truly enjoyed all the fun activities and crafts we got to do with the youth. It was a pleasure getting to be your summer reading program coordinators. We wish you the best of luck in the new school year.

In other news, the Stettler Public Library and the Jewel Theatre bring you the fall 2018 season of the Tiff Film Circuit. Passes and tickets may be purchased at the library prior to the showing or at the Jewel Theatre the evening of the movie. A four-movie pass costs $35, an eight-movie pass costs $70 and passes for individual movies cost $10. Tickets and passes are transferable and must be brought to each movie. The films will play on the first Monday of every month from September to December at 7:30 p.m. The films this fall will be “Hearts Beat Loud” in September, “Ava” in October, “Leave No Trace” in November and “Meditation Park” in December. See you at the movies!
