Get your tickets for the Friends of the Library Christmas Wine Survivor

October is packed with a range of programming

Submitted by Crystal Friars

The month of October is halfway over and the Stettler Public Library still has so many programs to go for the month that we think that there will be something here for everyone! Just keep reading!

I’m always looking for new members to join Crystal’s Crochet Club. Our next session at the comfy couch in front of the fireplace is Saturday, Oct. 19th at 1:30 p.m.

The Crochet Club is open to all skill levels and all ages. For more information, call the Library at 403-742-2292.

October seems to be the month of food so join the Cookbook Club on Monday, Oct. 21st at 6:30 p.m. when we celebrate the Country Harvest. Bring a dish containing vegetables or fruits harvested this season because I’m sure that you have extras. But if you are needing inspiration, come and check out the cookbook selection here at the Stettler Public Library.

Is writing something that you are passionate about?

Come to the Library and join The Writers’ Club. It is a supportive group of writers that will be meeting at the Library on Thursday, Oct. 24th at 6:30 p.m. Share your work and bounce ideas of fellow writers.

Adult Crafting will be joining the Halloween Craze on Thursday, Oct. 24th at 6:30 pm.

On the agenda for the night are Monsters and Spiders with which you will be able to make a large spooky impact in your All Hallow’s Eve decorating.

Are you wanting to learn more about how to brew your own beer?

Well, the Beer Library is back! Join Ryan Bolin on Friday, Oct. 25th at 6:30 p.m. when he discusses the process of making a great cream ale.

Watch a demo, sample a selection of cream ales and enjoy a few snacks. Of course this is for ages 18 and up (a great way for the parents to come and enjoy the Library without the kids) and there is a small cost of $10 per person. Come on down to the Library and get your tickets today!

Let’s do the Time Warp again!

Yes, the Stettler Public Library will be having the 2nd annual showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 6:30 p.m.

Come dressed as your favourite character and bring your toast and be prepared to have fun! We’ll have some RHPS survival kits with props ready for you and, of course, there will be popcorn.

There is no admission fee for this event but we ask that you pre-register by calling the Library at 403-742-2292. This event is for ages 18 and up.

Don’t forget to get your tickets for the 2nd annual 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.
