I have the perfect gift idea for you. The Film Circuit passes for the Winter 2019 season are now available.

Join us at the Jewel Theatre on Jan. 7, 2019, at 7:30 p.m. for the Canadian movie “The Grizzlies.” Based on a true story, “The Grizzlies” is about the determination and resilience of a group of Inuit youth in a small Arctic community. A great movie to start the new year!

Needing some time to center yourself because of the craziness of the holiday season. Join Alicia Tate on Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. for Meditation Night at the Library.

Music is always an important part of the Christmas season so this month’s Ukulele Night on Dec. 12 at 6:30 p.m. will be the Christmas Edition. Beginner or ukulele shredder, just bring your instrument. We will have two spare for people to give it a whirl. The library will be alive with the sound of music.
