December continues its busy pace at the library

Will you be attending Skate with Santa at the Stettler Recreation Centre on Dec. 21st?

Season’s readings everyone! With just under two weeks before Christmas, there is still lots to do at the Library this December. Just look at what we have to offer for all ages!

This year you can make a food bank donation at the library as we are hosting a Reverse Advent Calendar. We are collecting specified items each day and will donate the collection to the food bank the end of December. See the library for a list of needed items.

If you love crafts, join us to explore your creative side on Thursday, Dec. 12th, we will have Christmas Crafting for adults at 6:30 p.m.

Please register by calling 403-742-2292 to ensure we have enough supplies on hand.

Are you looking for an art form that is meditative in nature? Crocheting has many benefits, not the least of which is that at the end you have a wonderful hand-made item to keep or give away.

Join Crystal on Saturday, Dec. 14th at 1:30 p.m. to create something unique. All skill levels are welcome. If you cannot get enough of Christmas crafts, join our Tuesday Club on Dec. 17th at 1 p.m., we will have a special version of Craftapalooza for ages 18+.

There are also plenty of programs for children ages 6+ this week.

On Dec. 12th, Something Cool after School will focus on the science of slime, we will make all different kinds, including glitter, sunset, glow in the dark and party slime.

On Saturday, Dec. 14th from 1 – 3 p.m. kids and families can join us for session 2 of Craftapalooza where we will be creating holiday cards, gifts, and ornaments.

On Thursday, Dec. 19th at 4 p.m., Something Cool after School will be taking on Popsicle stick crafts. We will make snowflakes, a snowman, and a polar bear! Ages 6+.

If you are 11+ and are interested in improv, you will want to join us for Improv Games at the library on Friday, Dec. 13th from 4-6 p.m.

Light snacks will be included in the fun. If video gaming is more your speed you will want to check out our Smash Bros tournaments. Duke it out at the library every Saturday in December from 1 – 4 p.m!

Everyone needs public speaking skills.

Hone yours by attending Toastmasters on Thursday, Dece. 19th at 7 p.m. in the SRC boardroom. Also on Dec. 19th at 6:30 p.m. we will be screening The Gift of Diabetes in the library. Join us for an award-winning documentary that explores the diabetes epidemic within Indigenous communities in Canada through the journey of Ojibway filmmaker, Brion Whitford.

Take advantage of the library’s volunteer resource person on Thursday afternoons from 1 – 3 p.m.

She has a wealth of knowledge about community and government resources and can provide referrals and expert help with anything job related such as resumes, cover letters.

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10:30 to noon, Read and Rhyme provides young children and their families an opportunity to listen to stories, play with rhyming and do many other fun activities with others.
