Two busy months for Stettler Library

November and December are going to be incredibly busy months for the staff of the Stettler Public Library and I am not talking about our Christmas shopping lists.

Besides our regular programming, we are offering five special programs from now until Dec. 10. I know that you need to fill in the empty spaces of your schedule before Christmas, so let me tell you about what is coming up at the Stettler Public Library.

Game Over Junior is a gaming party for children ages five to 10 on Saturday, Nov. 13. Join Shaunzy and Morgan from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. for games of all types: WII, Xbox and board games. Hot dogs will be served.

Are you wanting to make cards for Christmas but can’t find the time? Or is the grandparents’ calendar just sitting on the table waiting to be put together? The Stettler Public Library can help you find the time and space to finish those small projects. Join us for Small Projects Day on Saturday, Nov. 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call us at 403-742-2292 to reserve your spot.

Alicia Tate, our outreach librarian, will be hosting a seniors’ Christmas tea at the library on Thursday, Dec. 2 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m..

There will be refreshments and goodies as well as good conversation to be had. Don’t forget to call 403-742-5858 to book your Handibus ride to the library. The rides are free for all trips to the library courtesy of Royal LePage Central.

It is Craftapalooza time again and we are so looking forward to it here at the Stettler Public Library. For those of you unfamiliar with Craftapalooza, this is the one day a year in which the kids (or anybody, for that matter) can come to the library and make small Christmas crafts that can be used as gifts or decorations. We have set the date for Saturday, Dec. 2, but we are still working out times and crafts. Keep watching for further details.

Brain Candy Book Club will be meeting to “discuss” the book Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand on Tuesday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. Call the library at 403-742-2292 to reserve your copy.

The library’s other book club, Reader’s Circle, will be discussing Wild Swans by Jung Chang on Thursday, Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m. Copies of the book are now available for pick up at the Library.

Girls’ Night: Teen Edition will be making its debut on Friday, Dec. 10 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Stettler Public Library. Celebrating all things girly, there will be eyebrow waxing, bra fittings, yoga, kettlebells, makeup application tips, etc. Some guests will have a nominal charge and there is registration for the makeup application. Call 403-742-2292 to book your makeup slot.
