Winter library programs back on track

Summer is officially over and the kids are back to school. That means that a sense of calm has returned to the Stettler Public Library. But that won’t be for long, because our programs will be starting again soon.

Reader’s Circle is back again for another year of literary discussion. Our first book is “The Diviners” by Margaret Laurence and we will be discussing it on Thursday, Sept. 3 at 7:30 p.m. Our reading list for the next nine months will be revealed and tea will be plenty, so everybody is welcome.

Teen Night continues on its merry way each Wednesday at 6 p.m. Join Shaunzy for games of all kinds and other frivolity. He would love to see you here at the library.

Teen Book Club moves to Fridays at 4 p.m. on Sept. 4. Join Deb for some major discussions and some mean games of Scrabble.

That leads us to Labour Day weekend. The Stettler Public Library will be closed on Monday, Sept. 7 to celebrate the last long weekend of the summer. We hope that everybody has a fun but safe long weekend.

Story Time returns on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 11:15 a.m. It is open to everybody ages three and up. There will be stories, songs, and crafts. I love Story Time, maybe because I lead it and I have so much fun with the kids and the stories. I guess I am just a big kid at heart.

Rhyming Kids returns on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 10:30 a.m. It is open to all parents and guardians with children ages newborn and up. Join Alicia for songs, rhymes, stories and play. This is a drop-in program and everybody is welcome.

Bedtime Stories continues from the summer on Thursdays, starting Sept. 17 at 7 p.m. This is a half hour program of stories, rhymes, and songs to lull your little ones to sleep. Everybody is invited to bring their favourite teddy bears and come dressed in their pjs. Believe, I will.

The Stettler Public Library and the Friends of the Library are pleased to announce the 1st Annual Friends of the Library Giant Book Sale. It is being held in the Conference Room at the Stettler Recreation Centre on Friday, Oct. 2, 2009 from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 3, 2009 from 10 a.m to 3 p.m. You can buy a pile of books for $1.00 a foot or buy a book bag and fill it for $5.00. Gently used donations will be accepted, but no encyclopedia sets please.

If you have any questions about anything in the column or are wondering about any other ways that the Stettler Public Library could be of help, please feel free to contact us at 403-742-2292 or check our website at
