Stettler Culture Days are almost over! I hope that you didn’t miss anything that was brought to you by the large community partnership that oversaw the 2020 Stettler Culture Days. For a full listing of events remaining in the month, go to the Stettler Board of Trade web site and check out the listing under Projects: Alberta Culture Days (http://www.stettlerboardoftrade.com/CultureDays).

The Stettler Public Library and the Stettler Friends of the Library Society are partners in this community-wide endeavor and have or will be hosting several events.

Spaces will be limited to allow for social distancing, so register for the programs below by calling the library at 403-742-2292.

Bring paper and a pencil and come and learn how to draw in the comic style. Chance Clark will be sharing his comic art expertise on Saturday, Sept. 19th at 1 p.m.

Learn how to draw your own super heroes! Everyone aged 10+ are welcome to attend. If you are not quite 10 and coming with a family member, we’ll be okay with that! Please pre-register by calling the library at 403-742-2292 because space is limited.

Stettler Public Library is also pleased to present the Art of Persuasion for Creative Writers on Sept. 26th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Fran Kimmel will be leading the workshop and she is the author of two fantastic books, The Shore Girl and No Good Asking (both of which are available for loan through your local community library).

This workshop is free of charge but there are only a few spots available; call the Library to book your spot. All you need to bring is a pen and paper, a favourite novel or memoir, a packed lunch, and your enthusiasm.

The Stettler Friends of the Library Society’s Historic Ghost Walk is completely full for Alberta Culture Days but that doesn’t mean that you will miss out! The last Historic Ghost Walk for 2020 will be taking place on Saturday, Oct. 24th at 7:30 p.m.

Spots are limited to 15 participants and the cost is $10 per person; all ages are welcome.

Call the Library at 403-742-2292 to book your spot.

Our regular library programs are starting to return for the fall. If you have any questions about programs, or would like to register for an event, call us at 403-742-2292.

We are asking people to register for all of our events now, so that we can ensure social distancing.

Something Cool After School is returning on Thursdays at 4 p.m.

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! Read and Rhyme is also taking place in the great outdoors during September as long as the weather holds.

Littles (ages 0-5) with their big people are invited for songs, stories, and rhymes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 3 p.m. Limited spots are available so call the library to register.

Adult Crafting is back on Thursday, Sept. 24th at 6:30 p.m.

Using yarn and a disposable cup, you will be making a unique accessory for your desk or side table to hold your pens, scissors, crochet hooks, etc.

Spots are limited so call the Library at 403-742-2292 to register. Take home kits will be available the next day for those who could not make it.

Wanting to learn how to create wondrous items with yarn and a hook?

Come and join Crystal’s Crochet Club on Saturday, Sept. 26th at 1:30 p.m. Bring your current project or come and learn something new. All levels of experience are welcome. Call the Library at 403-742-2292 to register.

Reader’s Circle is also back on Monday, Sept. 28th at 6:30 p.m. with what I’m sure will be a lively discussion on the book Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid.

Copies of the book are available at the Library. You can attend the discussion in person or you can attend via Zoom. Call the Library to register.

The Stettler Public Library has non-medical masks available for free thanks to the Government of Alberta. Come in, pick up a movie or get a free library membership, and pick up a package of masks before you leave.
