Stettler Public Library news

‘See you in September’ is here right now

Submitted by Crystal Friars

“See you in September” was a constant phrase in June but now September is here. That means that summer is over and school is back in. It also means that the Stettler Public Library’s programming is starting to get into full swing. Check out what is happening at the most happenin’ place in town.

Even though school has only just begun, we want all the students to be prepared for the academic road ahead. Tutoring is back on Tuesdays from 5 to 8 p.m. Get math and science help from a certified educator for the fabulous price of $0 per session. We also want to help you get back on the mathematic train with our Math Refresher Day on Saturday, Sept. 9. Join Elaine for addition and subtraction help from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Things get a little more complicated with Elaine delves into multiplication and division from 2 to 4 p.m. And there will be no tests…just games, games, games!

Are you a professional Super Smash Bros player? Or do you want to be? Well, come to the library on Saturday, Sept. 9 at 12 noon for a tournament that allows you to master your skills. This tournament is open to beginners ages 5 to 12 and you must pre-register at 403-742-2292 so that we can start promptly at noon. Don’t worry advanced players, we haven’t forgotten about you. Your turn to dominate will be on Saturday Sept 23 at noon. And again we ask you to pre-register.

We don’t want to just appeal to those who love math and play video games. We also want to enrich those with artistic bend. The Art Club is back on Tuesday Sept 12 from 4 to 6 p.m. Ages 7 and up are going to learn water colour techniques and create your own masterpiece. We ask that you pre-register to ensure that we have enough supplies for everyone. Call us at 403-742-2292 to book your spot.

The Cookbook Club is back on Monday, Sept 18 at 6:30 p.m. with the appropriate theme of potluck. Bring your favourite potluck recipe and sample other wonderful dishes. Swap recipes and cooking tips and just have a great time. Call the library at 403-742-2292 for more information.

As always, for the most updated information please check spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for news of any other neat events and activities!
