Drop in infant programs at Stettler Public Library

Repair Café at the Stettler Recreation Centre on Saturday, Sept 20

Submitted by Crystal Friars Stettler Public Library

Tomorrow, Sept. 22, is the first day of fall and we have already had a good taste of it so far. It has gotten chilly and the leaves have started hitting the ground in the colours of orange and yellow. If the thought of this has depressed you, come into the Stettler Public Library to find something to put a smile on your face.

Read and Rhyme is definitely a program that will put a smile on your face. Join Lindsey on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 10:30 a.m. for rhymes, songs, games and crafts for ages 0 to 5. We have also added Baby Rhyme Time on Mondays and Wednesdays for ages 0 to 12 months at 10:30 a.m. Both programs are drop-in and are so much fun! So little people start dragging your big people to the library for a morning of songs and giggles.

This Saturday is chalk full of programs that will expand your horizons and give you something to enjoy.

The Stettler Public Library is introducing the whole family to the art of “coding.” Your children may be learning how to code in school and you don’t want to be left behind. Join us for Family Coding on Saturday Sept 23 at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. It is open to all ages (so that includes you, Mom and Dad) and we ask that you preregister by calling the library at 403-742-2292.

Our monthly Smash Bros. video game tournament for advanced players is also on Saturday Sept 23 at 12:30 p.m. Put your Smash skills to the test against others at the Stettler Public Library.

The Pokémon Swap Meet returns after a summer break on Saturday Sept 23 at 10:30 a.m. Play, battle and trade your favorite Pokémon at the Stettler Public Library.

We all know that the weather can change in a heartbeat so why not join Crystal’s Crochet Club on Saturday Sept 23 at 1:30 p.m. when there will be a selection of scarf patterns for you to choose from to help keep yourself warm during the fall and winter days. Anybody of any skill level is welcome to join us!

Come and check out the Repair Café at the Stettler Recreation Centre on Saturday, Sept 20 from 1 to 5 p.m. If you have anything that needs to be repaired, come and see the experts that can help you with these small repairs. You are welcome to use the library’s sewing machines for small mending repairs and Shaun will be here to help you convert your old photos and slides to a digital format.

As always, for the most updated information please check spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for news of any other neat events and activities!
