Video-game double feature on May-long weekend, come play with us!

Our summer students are busy planning for the summer, and as always, things are trucking along at the library.

STETTLER PUBLIC LIBRARY — Well things certainly are not slowing down here. Our summer students are busy planning for the summer, and as always, things are trucking along at the library. When we’re not reading, cooking, crafting, sewing, gaming, crocheting, tech timing, making and creating, and Pokémon swapping, we’re shelving, tutoring, after hours nerf battling, gardening, and doing our very best to come up with awesome events for our patrons. So if you are looking for something to do, check out the library; we’re witty, we’re pretty, and memberships are free, so you have literally no excuse.

On Tuesday, May 23 at 2 p.m., we’re breaking out the popcorn, and hanging onto our butterbeer and broomsticks as we dive back into the world of Harry Potter. Join us for a showing of the fabulous movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

In other exciting news, the library will be operating a kids’ fun zone at the upcoming, annual Stettler Steel Wheel Stampede. On Friday, June 9 from 5 to 9 p.m., and on Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11 from noon to 6 p.m., we will be at the Stettler Agriplex with fun games, crafts, and movies for your children to enjoy while you enjoy the rodeo. This will also give everyone a taste of what Andrew, Ashley, Jordan, Patty and Riley have in store for this year’s summer program.

Celebrate the May-long weekend at the Stettler Public Library. 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 or our Facebook page for news of any additional activities. We hope to see you soon!
