Whether you want to believe it or not, next week is the last week of the Summer Reading Program! Where has the summer gone? Krista, Megan and Reagan has so much planned for the week that you need to stop in and check it out what is going on at the Stettler Public Library. And keep watching this column for information on September’s programs.

The Summer Reading Program is very excited and pleased to have Mullen the Magician come and entertain the whole family on Wednesday, Aug. 21st at 2 p.m.

This summer wind-up party will have magic, face painting and a tonne of other fun activities. Bring the whole family and come and enjoy an afternoon at the Stettler Public Library.

Passes are now available for the Stettler Film Circuit and we will kick off the season on Monday, Sept. 2nd at 7:30 p.m. with a documentary on one of the most celebrated singer-songwriters that Canada has ever produced.

Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind spares nothing about Lightfoot’s personal weaknesses and failures as well as his triumphs and covers his career with his own words and those of his closest associates. A must for any music fan or any Canadian for that matter.

Passes are $35 for the first four movies or the entire season of eight for $70 and are available at the Stettler Public Library. Individual tickets can be purchased the night of each film at the Jewel Theatre for $10. The full eight movie pass means that you get one movie free! Support the Stettler Public Library and the Jewel Theatre and enjoy some great films!
