We are wanting to take advantage of the wonderful weather that we have been having so it will take place at the picnic table by the Library’s garden! Call 403-742-2292 to register!

Adult Crafting is back on Thursday, Aug. 27th at 6:30 p.m.

It is Colour Night at the Stettler Public Library so bring your own colouring book and crayons and join us for a night of colourful meditation. Colouring sheets and crayons will be provided as well. Please call 403-742-2292 to register because spots are limited. Kits will also be available for pickup so that you can do the craft at home.

The Summer Classics Series is back on Monday, Aug. 31st at 7 p.m. at the Jewel Theatre! Come and enjoy who some call the ultimate James Bond, Sir Sean Connery, in the 1964 Bond classic Goldfinger.

James Bond (Sir Sean Connery) is back and his next mission takes him to Fort Knox, where Auric Goldfinger (Gert Fröbe) and his henchman are planning to raid Fort Knox and obliterate the world economy.

To save the world once again, Bond will need to become friends with Goldfinger, dodge killer hats, and avoid Goldfinger’s personal pilot, the sexy Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman).

She might not have feelings for Bond, but will 007 help her change her mind? Admission is free, however, donations are gratefully appreciated. Come and support the Stettler Public Library, watch a great movie, and enjoy the best popcorn at the Jewel Theatre! I think that is a win, win and win!

The Stettler Friends of the Library Society and the Stettler Public Library are excited to be involved with Alberta Culture Days for 2020. Watch for details about some fabulous events!

If you are looking for non-medical face masks, the Stettler Public Library is the place to go. The Alberta Government has sent free face masks to be distributed through your local library.

Come in, pick up a movie or get your library membership (which is free), and pick up a package of masks before you leave.
