The first day of spring is only 17 days away!
That means it is time to do some spring cleaning and the Friends of the Library can help you out with that.
We are now collecting gently-read books for our Annual Giant Book Sale to be held on Fri, April 8 and Sat, April 9. Make room on your shelves for new books by bringing the books that you have already enjoyed so that they can be enjoyed by others while helping to raise money for the Stettler Public Library.
We will be collecting books and DVDs (but please no encyclopedias and textbooks) until Sat, April 2.
There is nothing more soothing and calming than popping bubble wrap.
Can you imagine how cathartic it will be to create art by stomping on bubble wrap! I get chills just thinking about it.
Unfortunately for the adults, this art project is just for kids. Join Something Cool After School on Tue, March 8 and Thu, March 10 at 4 p.m. for some stompin’ pop art. Remember that creating great art can be messy so come dressed in clothes that you don’t mind getting paint on. Spaces are limited for this program; call today to reserve yours.
Are you interested in 3D printing but don’t know where to start? Learn how to create 3D designs using Tinkercad. Shaunzy will show you how to get started on Sat, March 12 at 1 p.m. Tinkercad is a free online program used to create 3D objects. Spaces are limited; call to reserve yours today. For ages 6 and up.
Next up for Teen Scene is that essential item that you need to protect your beverages (and fingers), mug sleeves! Teens and tweens are invited to join us on Wednesday March 9 at 6 p.m. to create their very own, very cute mug sleeves for their cups and travel mugs. Spaces are limited; reserve your spot quickly.
She was once experimented with cooking various concoctions to repel sharks to prevent them from being killed by underwater explosives during World War II. She graduated from the famous Cordon Bleu cooking school in 1951. Her book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking was first published in 1961 and her cooking show The French Chef debuted on February 11, 1963. Of course, I am talking about Julia Child, the subject of the next Film Circuit offering: Julia. Join us at the Jewel Theatre on Mon, March 7 and Thu, March 10 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 each and are available at the library until the Saturday before the show. If you prefer, pick one up at the door on the night of the show.
