Join us through the fall and winter for one of our monthly films. Films begin at 1:30 pm – no registration necessary.

12 March – Local Hero is a small film to treasure. A loving, funny, understated portrait of a small Scottish town and its encounter with a giant oil company. A feel-good movie that is life-affirming, often laugh-out-loud funny and an absolute delight from the beginning to the ending.

First Wednesday of the month at 7 pm.

Come and meet your neighbours and share your love of books. Call 613-624-5306 for more information. Registration required.

The coffee is on at 10:30 a.m. and the speaker starts at 11 a.m. Everyone welcome.
