Hello, let us introduce ourselves: we are Kelsey Mailer and Taigen Whiteside, and we are thrilled to be working alongside Morgan Sorensen at the Stettler Public Library as this year’s Summer Reading Programmers!

The theme of the 2013 TD Summer Reading Program is “Go! Explore Near and Far”. We have been having many thrilling adventures at the Stettler Public Library and there’s sure to be more fun and excitement on the way!

We are happy to offer various programs for all ages throughout the summer months. Here are some upcoming events at the Stettler Public Library:

Every Monday is “Go & Grow,” our gardening program. Come into the Library from 11 a.m. to noon and help us care for the library garden. Watch in excitement and anticipation as our garden continues to grow!

The “Reading Buddies” program is available every Monday from 2:00-3:00 and every Friday from 10:00-11:00. Little Buddies can come and practice their reading skills and Big Buddies are invited to volunteer as mentors for younger readers.

Every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 10 to 11:30 is our “Explorers” program for ages 5 to 7.

Every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 2 to 3:30 is our “Adventurers” program for ages 8 to 12. We will be playing games, doing crafts, and reading stories. All of our activities will be planned around the theme of the week which will be announced at the program and advertisements.

There is a “Kids’ Movie Matinée” every Monday at 3 p.m. The Teen movie will be “Holes” on the 24th and on the and on the 31st, we will be watching Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy; both movies start at 6. Our upcoming kids’ movie is “Lilo & Stich” starting at 3 p.m. Come enjoy a good flick and some delicious, buttery popcorn!

The Summer Reading Program’s Fantastic Friday event, Campout in WSP, on July 26 will take place at West Stettler Park from 2 to 4 p.m. There will be camping games, snacks, activities and a campfire (if there is not a fire ban). Everyone is invited for this superb event in the great outdoors. If weather is poor we will meet in the conference room of the rec center.

On Thursday, the 25th, teens are invited to come to the Stettler Public Library for an unforgettable event called C.U.P.S. Come discover the awesome games, snacks and more that can be done with an everyday object. The fun all starts at 6 pm.

July 30 from 6 to 8 p.m. will be the library’s fantastic coffeehouse event. Come and see live performances as well as movies previously made by the participants. It will be a chill night of entertainment and laughs.
