It is the last weekend for Alberta Culture Days in Stettler.
I hope that you were all able to take in some of the wonderful events that have been happening in our community! To see a full listing of events remaining in the month, go to the Stettler Board of Trade website and check out the Alberta Culture Days page at http://www.stettlerboardoftrade.com/CultureDays. The Stettler Public Library and the Stettler Friends of the Library Society were pleased to partners with other organizations on this community-wide endeavor. We really appreciate funding that we received from the Government of Alberta to bring Culture Days activities to the community this year. Culture Days will be back next September, so keep watch for future announcements.
Take advantage of the spooky atmosphere that comes with Halloween and join us for the Friends of the Library Society’s last Historic Ghost Walk for 2020.
It will be taking place on Saturday, Oct. 24th at 7:30 p.m. We are limiting this event to 15 participants and the cost is $10 per person; all ages are welcome.
Call the Library at 403-742-2292 to book your place.
The Friends of the Library Society doesn’t want to help you just celebrate Halloween, we want to help you celebrate Christmas as well.
Tickets are now on sale for 2020 Christmas Wine Survivor. This is your chance to be the last one standing and possibly walk away with 60 bottles of wine.
Holidays will be so jolly at your house with that, not to mention you will be set for gift giving! Your entry into this raffle is $20 plus a $15 bottle of wine.
Tickets are on sale at the Stettler Public Library or through any Friends member. Tickets are on sale until Nov. 28th with elimination draws starting Monday, Nov. 30th at 4 p.m.
We will continue the elimination draws until the final draw on Saturday, Dec. 5th.
Will you be the last one standing? All draws will be shown on the Library’s Facebook page. The more tickets we sell, the more wine will be up for the taking!
Are you looking for local events and programs?
The Stettler Public Library is dedicated to offering programs to inform, inspire and entertain you, your friends and family. We offer a variety of great programs for all ages.
If you have any questions about programs, would like to suggest a program, or want to register for a program, call us at 403-742-2292. Due to Covid-19 we are asking that everyone register for events now, so that we can ensure social distancing.
Wanting to learn how to create wondrous items with yarn and a hook? Come and join Crystal’s Crochet Club on Saturday, Sept. 26th at 1:30 p.m.
Bring your current project or come and learn something new. All levels of experience are welcome. Call the Library at 403-742-2292 to register.
Reader’s Circle is also back on Monday, Sept. 28th at 6:30 p.m. with what I’m sure will be a lively discussion on the book Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
Copies of the book are available at the Library. You can attend the discussion in person or you can attend via Zoom. Call the Library to register.
While the Stettler Film Circuit is currently on hold due to restructuring at TIFF, that doesn’t mean that we can’t bring you some great films at the Jewel Theatre.
We are present to offer you Stettler Film Circuit: B Sides, movies that we wanted to bring you but were unable to.
We are starting on Monday, Oct. 5th at 7 p.m. with an Oscar-nominated movie from late 2019: Jojo Rabbit starring Roman Griffin Davis, Thomasin McKenzie, Taika Waititi, Rebel Wilson, Stephen Merchant, Alfie Allen, Sam Rockwell and Scarlett Johansson.
Jojo is a lonely German boy who discovers that his single mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their attic. Aided only by his imaginary friend — Adolf Hitler — Jojo must confront his blind nationalism as World War II continues to rage on. This movie won an Oscar in February 2020 for Best Adapted Screenplay.
Admission is free; but donations are appreciated. Come and enjoy a great movie and support your local library and theatre all in one shot! Plus popcorn!
Something Cool After School is back on Thursdays at 4 p.m. We are wanting to take advantage of the wonderful weather while we have it, so we will be outside at the picnic table on the east side of the building until the weather turns!
Call 403-742-2292 to register. Read and Rhyme is also taking place in the great outdoors during September as long as the weather holds. Littles (ages 0-5) with their big people are invited for songs, stories, and rhymes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 3 pm. Spaces are limited so call the library to register.
Did you know that the Library has a machine that will buff out scratched DVDs, compact discs, Blu-rays, and gaming discs? Bring your discs that need repair and we will buff the scratches out for you for $2 per disc. Call the Library at 403-742-2292 for more information. Library staff can attest that the machine works wonders!
The Stettler Public Library has non-medical masks available for free thanks to the Government of Alberta. Come in, pick up a movie or get a free library membership, and pick up a package of masks before you leave.
