An update from the Stettler Public Library.

An update for the week of Dec. 23, 2021.

By Crystal Friars

Sometimes the holidays can get very hectic!

If you need a break from it all, why not come to the Stettler Public Library to spend a little quiet time on your own, or sign up for some great programming for children and youth over the holiday season?

The Library will close at 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve and reopen on Monday, December 27, 2021, at 10 a.m.

We will be open regular hours all week until New Year’s Eve.

On New Year’s Eve we will close at 4 p.m. again until Jan. 3,2022, at 10 a.m.

We are here, ready to support your goals for the New Year with new materials to entertain and inform you.

Our film circuit is off to a big start for 2022 with the film “Beans”.

Twelve-year-old Beans is on the edge: torn between innocent childhood and reckless adolescence; forced to grow up fast and become the tough Mohawk warrior she needs to be during the Oka Crisis.

Many of us will remember the uprising that tore Quebec and Canada apart for 78 tense days in the summer of 1990.

Co-written and directed by Tracey Deer, this is a movie that we all must see.

Join us at the Jewel Theatre on Monday, Jan. 3 or Thursday, Jan. 6 at 7 p.m. to see this incredible Canadian film.

Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at the Library or at the Jewel Theatre on the night of the show.

Are you interested in role playing games?

Why not join Shaunzy and try Dungeons and Dragons on Saturday, Jan. 8 and Jan. 15 at 1 p.m!

Come and build your character, enjoy some snacks and save the world!

Bring your own dice, if you have them; if not, we have some dice to share.

We will be meeting in the SRC Boardroom, spaces are limited so call ahead to register. Ages 15+.

Something Cool After School is back on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4 p.m. starting Jan. 4, 2022.

The kids will get a chance to create their own self-portrait on Jan. 4 and 6.

Brain Train pulls into the station for the first time in 2022 on Saturday, Jan. 8th at 10:30 a.m. and noon.

On this day we will be moving beyond plain old paper airplanes to create, test and race different kinds of paper flyers.

Call the library to register and be quick because the spaces fill up really fast.

Teen Scene is back on Wednesday, Jan. 5 at 6 p.m. when the teens and tweens will get to experiment with snowflake designs.

They say that no two snowflakes are the same so why not decorate your room with a flurry of individual snowflakes that are super fun to make.

Practicing mindfulness should never have to be a New Year’s resolution, but if it was yours, Alicia Tate is back on Tuesday, Jan. 11 at 7 p.m. via Zoom.

She will be leading us in some discussion and showing us how to incorporate mindfulness into our lives.

Put Wednesday, Jan. 19, 2022, on your calendar because the Stettler Public Library and the Jewel Theatre has teamed up to bring you Adult Gaming Night at the Jewel!

The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the games start at 7 p.m.

Come by yourself or bring your friends because we will have an assortment of fun games on the big screen.

Bring your phone to play along.

Admission is by donation and the Jewel’s concession will be open.

On behalf of the staff and board of the Stettler Public Library, I would like to wish you all a safe and healthy Merry Christmas! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us.

Whether it be suggestions on what to read next or help downloading your vaccine QR code, the staff of the Stettler Public Library are here to help you.

Anyone can register or get more program information by calling the library at 403-742-2292.
