Stettler Public Library celebrates ‘Peeps’

Block of the Month offers quilting blocks

You know those disgusting marshmallow sugar-covered candies that come out at Easter? Peeps? Well the Stettler Public Library celebrates those monstrosities and we encourage you to make them into wonderful works of art during our Annual Peeps Diorama Contest! Come in and pick up your Peeps and boxes start creating some wonderful scenes. Final judging for the Annual Peeps Diorama Contest is March 31 so have your dioramas at the Library by Friday March 30. Good Luck!

We have a couple of exciting days coming up here at the Stettler Public Library. Join us on Thursday March 1 at 1 pm for the movie “Tron Legacy”. Join us for popcorn and a movie and enjoy this sci-fi masterpiece.

Continuing on with the sci-fi motif, why not come and try out our Oculus Rift on Friday March 9 at 1 pm. For ages 6 and up, come and try out some great games on our virtual reality system. Don’t eat too much before you come because riding the rollercoaster is very realistic!

We have spots available for the Block of the Month starting March 15 at 6 pm. Learn to make a new quilt block every month. March is the Interlocking Block month! Call the Library at 403-742-2292 to register because spaces are limited.

You wanted it so you got it! More Pokemon! Starting Thursday March 1, the Pokemon Swap Meet becomes weekly from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. The Stettler Public Library is where you can find Pikachu and his friends.

Also during the month of March we are going to increase our Super Smash Bros. quotient. Every Saturday at 12 pm we will be hosting 2 tournaments for all ages! Challenge your friends and come and join the fun at the Stettler Public Library.

Our last Film Circuit movie for the season is coming up fast so put Monday April 2 at 7 pm on your calendar. “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool” stars Jamie Bell, Annette Benning and Julie Walters in this adaptation of Peter Turner’s memoir of the same name. The film follows the playful but passionate relationship between Turner and the eccentric Academy Award winning actress Gloria Grahame in 1978 Liverpool. What starts as a vibrant affair between a legendary femme fatale and her young lover quickly grows into a deeper relationship, with Turner being the person Gloria turns to for comfort.
