Try the 3D printing wonder at the library

The month of April has been a busy month for the Stettler Public Library.

The trade show showed off our services and fun gadgets, Bubbles and Bling was a great night of pampering and laughter for all involved and our showing of the movie “Selma” was well attended. If you missed it, don’t worry because we are purchasing it for the library.

Come celebrate Earth Day by using recycled household items to make an amazing craft. Join us on Wednesday, April 22 at 4 p.m. and make an amazing earth-friendly egg carton flower wreath to enjoy this spring.

Perhaps you saw the library’s brand new 3D printer at the trade show. If you’d like to learn the basics of designing objects to print you should come to one of the library’s 3D Design with TinkerCAD sessions. They’re starting on Saturday, April 25 at 10:30 and at 1 p.m. and are open to anyone (child or adult) over the age of 10. Please pre-register by calling 403-742-2292 as these sessions are limited to six participants each.

The County and Town of Stettler are full of an amazing array of wildlife, but we tend to overlook this natural wonder because we see it daily. Come and learn about the nature surrounding us on Saturday, April 25 at 1 p.m. when we present birds, bugs and wetlands. Join the Buffalo Lake Naturalists to talk about natural history and habitat at the library. All ages are welcome.

Do you want to try something new but really don’t know what? Why not try writing at the library on Thursday, April 30 at 6:30 p.m. with the Stettler Writers’ Group? New members are always welcome.

Once a year, the superpowers of the comics world band together to give out free comics. That day falls on the first Saturday of May (Saturday, May 2 at 10:30 a.m.) and is known as Free Comic Book Day. Join us at the library for free comics, sugary cereals and classic cartoons. We follow that up at 1 p.m. with a return Skype visit from Chris, lead animator and director of Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Bam! Pow! It is going to be a great day.

During the remainder of April, the library will be showcasing artwork by students from William E. Hay Composite High School. Drop in and have a look. There is a lot of incredible talent in this town.

As you can see the Stettler Public Library is more than you imagined. If you can’t stop by and see us, check out our webpage: spl.prl.ab.ca or like us on Facebook (facebook.com/StettlerPublicLibrary).
