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!

Crystal’s Crochet Club is also on Dec. 8 at 1:30 p.m. Learn a new skill and join new and old friends interested in crocheting. Patterns for snowflakes will be available for anyone interested. Crystal’s Crochet Club is open to anyone regardless of skill.

Our Super Smash Bros tournament is on all month, Saturdays at 1 p.m. Hone your Smash Bros skills during the month of December. Challenge your friends and play until a weekly champion is crowned.

Classic Movie Monday is back on Dec. 10 at 10:30 a.m. This month’s selection is the 1955 movie “We’re No Angels” starring Humphrey Bogart and Peter Ustinov.

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.
