Lots to take part in at the local library

Stettler Public Library asks are you having trouble finding your center?

June is officially upon us and that means that the Summer Reading Program is around the corner. Krista and Megan will be out and about visiting the kids at their schools, getting them excited about this year theme of Natural World. Registration forms are now available at the front desk so drop on in and say hi to Krista and Megan.

Summer is only two weeks away and many of us dream of a barbecued steak and a cold beer on a long summer night. With that in mind, the Stettler Public Library is proud to present The Beer Library Chapter Two: the DIY version on Friday June 7 at 6:30 pm. Are you interested in home brewing but don’t know where to start? Or do you home brew already but want a few new tips. Ryan Bolin will demonstrate the boil process and you will get to sample a few cream ales. A great way to spend an evening! Tickets are $10 each for members and their invited guests and available at the Library. If you aren’t a member, come on down and get a library membership. Remember they are free!

Everyone needs to center himself or herself at one time or another.

Are you having trouble finding your center? Or does your center need to be a bit more grounded? Come to Meditation Night at the Library on Tuesday June 11th at 7 p.m.

Alicia Tate, our local yoga guru, will lead us in a meditation circle and help us to become more mindful. Everyone is welcome!

Are you looking for advice on your job search, upcoming interview or navigating government programs?

Would you like someone to proofread your resume? Come to the Stettler Public Library on Thursdays at 1 p.m. for “Inform Your Search” Thursdays.

We are very pleased to have a very knowledgeable volunteer here to help you find job search success. Call the Library at 403-742-2292 for more information.

Join us on Wednesday, June 12th at 6:30 p.m. for Ukulele Night at the Library. All levels are welcome and we will play a selection of favourite songs.

Bring your ukulele or use one of ours and let’s get down! (Yes, I know I sound dorky when I say that but I felt it needed to be said.)

It’s time for another adult crafting night here at the Stettler Public Library. Join us to try your hand at paper beading on Thursday, June 13th at 6:30 p.m.

Learn to transform paper into beads and then create some beautiful jewelry or a decorative box. Spots are limited so call the Library at 403-742-2292 to register.

The Friends of the Library’s Historic Ghost Walk is so popular (thank you Stettler!) that a third date has been added. We are now taking registrations for Saturday, July 20th at 9:30 p.m.

The cost for the walk is $20 per person and includes appetizers. Both walks up to this point have filled rather quickly, so call the Library at 403-742-2292 to register.

Did you know that you could sign out Stettler Recreation Centre family passes with your library card? Thanks to KidsSport Stettler and the Stettler FCSS for sponsoring the two SRC family fitness passes, you can! Use them when you have your holidays or you have family coming to visit. Just use them any time of year. Call us or check out our website (spl.prl.ab.ca) for more information.

A video of the information evening with Malcolm Fischer and Judge David MacNaughton discussing the Robert Raymond Cook case are still available. DVD copies are $10 each and you can stop by the Library to pick one up.

If you would like to see our other programs, check out our web site at https://spl.prl.ab.ca. For more information on library services stop by for a tour anytime or call us at 403-742-2292. We post information about upcoming events and other interesting bits on Facebook, be sure to follow us there for the latest news!
