Week one of the Stettler Public Library’s Summer Reading Program has come to a highly successful end. Everyone enjoyed the bowling, ice cream cake, movie and popcorn, gardening, and everything else that Ashley, Patty, Jordan and Riley had up their sleeves. Don’t miss out on the fun of Dino Week here at the library.

On Thursday, July 13 at 3:30 pm we are showing Jurassic Park and having pizza for the teens (13+) at the library. This requires pre-registration so everyone gets a slice. What could be better than pizza and dinosaurs? Nothing!

Kids Cooking Club (ages 6+) is happening on Saturday, July 15, at 2-4 p.m. Classic Chocolate Chip cookies are on the menu so please pre-register because this ensures that the library staff doesn’t indulge in too many chocolate chips.

With the way that the weather has been, why don’t you join us for a water fight on Monday, July 17! Canoes (ages 6-8) will meet at the library at 10:30 am and Ski-doos will meet at 12:30 pm for the first part of our fabulous time in the sun. While at the library the kids will make sponge bombs that will be used for our water fight at the Spray Park. Come dressed in your bathing suit under your clothes, bring your towel and sunscreen and be prepared to have fun!

Peter Puffin’s Whale Tales is also returning this summer so mark your calendars for Wednesday, July 19, at 2 p.m. Join Peter Puffin as he entertains you with songs about our favourite country: Canada and it is appropriate for all ages. Pre-registration is not required for this so please bring your family and friends! It is a great way to spend the afternoon!
