This summer we adventure around Canada!

The Summer Reading Program returns to the library this July and August.

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — Life at the library is never boring, but lately things have reached new and exciting heights. Summer is almost here and the summer students have begun arriving. As I write, they are busily working on awesome summer programs for our younger patrons. That is right! The Summer Reading Program is returning to the library this July and August, and in honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary, this year’s theme is Canada!

So this summer join Patty, Ashley, Andrew, Riley, Jordan, and all of us here at the library as we adventure around Canada and explore everything that is amazing about the country that we call home. Did you know that Canada has more doughnut shops per capita than anywhere else in the world? Learn awesome facts and so much more with the TD Summer Reading Program. It is completely free and, as luck would have it, so are library memberships, so this summer get out, get reading, and get Canadian.

In more imminent news, Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Don’t be left scrambling, trying to find a gift, come to the library on Saturday, May 13 at 2 p.m. and learn how to make an infinity scarf that mothers are sure to love. On Saturday, May 20 we have a video game double feature. Get ready to do battle at Super Smash Bros Day and party all night at Game Over 2017. Beginning at 10 a.m., both beginner and intermediate tournaments are available for Super Smash Bros Day, and all ages are welcome. Then join us at 8 p.m. for our annual, all night gaming marathon at Game Over 2017. Participants must be 12 and over and have a permission form signed by a parent or guardian. To register for this event, and many others, contact the library.

The end of the school year is fast approaching, and with it your last chance to boost your marks. On Tuesday evenings from 5 to 8 p.m., we have tutoring sessions with a certified educator. Get ahead of the curve, grab your homework, and head to the library.

The library is now hosting Read and Rhyme on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Are you and your toddler looking for something to do? Read and Rhyme provides a fun and educational environment to play and make some new friends.

For the most updated information, please check spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for news of any additional activities. We hope to see you soon.
