Did you #GETLIBRARYCARDED yet?

We want you to come to the Stettler Public Library during the month of September and get your library card or renew your library card!

Then send us a photo of you with your library card at locations around the town or county for a chance to win $50 in Stettler Dollars.

Post your picture to Instagram or Twitter, tagging us while using the #getlibrarycarded hashtag and you will get two entries. The contest runs until Sept. 30th at 11:59 p.m.

Getting a library card is the simplest process. All you have to do is come visit the Stettler Public Library and answer a few questions. There is no money involved because your library card is free if you live in the Town or County of Stettler. Call us at 403-742-2292 for more information.

Cookbook Club is back!

But we don’t want to let the summer memories go quite yet so the theme for Monday, Sept. 16th at 6:30 p.m. is Summer Memories!

Share a recipe you made for a summer barbecue or family gathering and we’ll celebrate the passing of the seasons.

The Stettler Public Library wants to provide everyone with a safe and knowledgeable place that ideas can be shared and we want to help parents and mature students cope with the school year.

Back to School Tips on Thursday, Sept. 19th at 6:30 p.m. is an evening of sharing tips and tricks to make the school year easier for everyone.

Are you tired of the same meals all the time but don’t know how to mix dinner time up?

Join us for A Taste of South East Asia on Tuesday, Oct. 1st from 6 to 9 p.m.

Chef Sophear (Pete) Sok is leading a cooking class in which you will learn how to cook a few new dishes and enjoy a meal at the end of the evening.

There is a cost of $50 per person for this cooking class and spots are limited. So save the date and come and pick up your tickets soon.

I know that it is only September but tickets are now on sale for the 2nd annual Stettler Friends of the Library Christmas Wine Survivor. For just $20 and a $15 bottle of wine, you can win enough wine to get you through the holiday season.

Tickets will be on sale until Dec. 5th.

Our wonderful Friends Group will be hosting an Elimination Party on Saturday, Dec. 7th for all the members of the Stettler Public Library who have bought a ticket.

Not a member yet? We have a remedy for that and it’s free to residents of Stettler and Stettler County thanks to the support of our Town and County Council! For more information, call the Library at 403-742-2292. The proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the establishment of an equipment lending collection at the Library.
