Stettler library hosting video game tournament and more

Stettler library also screening Olympic movie ‘Cool Runnings’

We have snow! Everything is covered in white! I love seeing that because I hate the colour brown and there was getting to be too much of it. If it is supposed to be cold, it should be white. And when it is this white, it is best to come to the Stettler Public Library and pick up a book or movie and take in a program or two. Check out what is coming up.

Saturday February 10 is packed full of a tonne of great programming at the Stettler Public Library. Starting at 12 noon is the monthly Beginner Super Smash Bros Tournament. This is a great program for kids ages 5 to 12.

Then at 1:30 p.m. you have your pick of two programs. First off we will be showing the great Olympic movie classic “Cool Runnings” and, of course, popcorn will be served. Then while the kids are watching the movie, come join Crystal’s Crochet Club. I’m thinking that we will get started on a blanket to keep us warm. You can stop by and see me before then because I have a wonderful selection of easy blanket patterns to choose from.

Why not try something new by coming to our Cookbook Club on Monday February 12 at 6:30 p.m.? The theme is Italian so look through your cookbooks or come look at the collection at the library, choose an Italian recipe that looks interesting and cook away. Then bring that dish to our monthly potluck at the library. It is a great way to share recipes, try something new and have great conversation while enjoying a great meal. Everyone is welcome.

Saturday February 17 is packed again (our Saturdays are usually packed). Advanced players of Super Smash Bros. are invited to join this month’s advanced tournament at the library starting at noon. Bring your friends and challenge them to an afternoon of gaming.

Then starting at 1 p.m., we are going to have a Land Before Time movie marathon. We are starting off the marathon with “The Land Before Time: Great Longneck Migration” at 1 p.m. and following that up with “The Land Before Time: Invasion of the Tinysauruses” at 3 p.m. Everyone is welcome and we have popcorn! Children under the age of 6 must be accompanied by an adult.

I’m so excited by our March Film Circuit movie. We are pleased to be showing “Lady Bird” on Monday March 5 at 7 p.m. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom, a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home. This movie is nominated for five Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director.
