Yummy treats for you at the library

October is a busy month for the Stettler Public Library. This month is Canadian Library Month and this is also Parkland Regional Library’s 50th anniversary.

October is a busy month for the Stettler Public Library. This month is Canadian Library Month and this is also Parkland Regional Library’s 50th anniversary. To celebrate both of these important milestones and events, the Stettler Public Library invites you for cake on Wednesday, Oct. 14 from noon until closing.

To celebrate Canadian Library Month and Thanksgiving, the Stettler Public Library is offering Food for Fines from Oct. 17 to Oct. 31. For each non-perishable food item, one dollar will be waived from your fines.

Also October means Halloween and the Stettler Public Library is planning something special for the ghouly day. Watch this column for further details. But believe me when I say that Halloween is going to be one to remember at the Stettler Public Library.

I just attended a library conference and I found something that I thought would be of great use for you: Service Alberta (www.servicealberta.ca) is a government of Alberta website that is full of information that is useful to all Albertans. This website is your gateway to consumer information on registered businesses and charities. There is also information for landlords and tenants, on how to register your vehicles and on how to find land titles. Vital statistical information can also be found at this website. It is through vital statistics that you register your newborn, obtain a death certificate or search for information for genealogical research. There is so much information available on this website that I can’t mention it all here. Take a look at the Service Alberta website and you will see the wealth of information available. If you can’t look at it at home, come on into the library and use one of our free internet stations.

The Stettler Public Library will be closing at 4 p.m on Saturday, Oct. 10 and will reopen again on Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 10 a.m. The board, staff and volunteers of the Stettler Public Library wish that everybody has a safe Thanksgiving weekend.
