Wednesday Movie – Murder on The Orient Express

__5a4436685356f

Wednesday, June 20, 6:45 (114 min., PG13)

When a luxurious train is stranded in the snow and a man is murdered in his compartment, the crime is investigated by a famous detective who is also a passenger. He discovers that many of the passengers knew the victim from years before in connection with the kidnapping of a three year old heiress who was killed even though her ransom had been paid. When the murder victim’s true identity is revealed as the kidnapper/killer, suspicion falls on 13 travelers who are linked to the original case through their ties to the child’s family and the tragedy.

National Indigenous Peoples Day Movie Night – Reserve 107

Reserve-1071524774356758

Thursday, June 21, 7:00
Reserve 107:  Reconciliation on the Prairies (30 min.)

For decades, stories have spread throughout the village of Laird, Saskatchewan. It has been said that First Nation descendants of an old treaty have visited shopkeepers and town officials. The First Nations that came to the town, starting in the 1970s, insisted that a treaty signed between their people and the government of Canada states the land of the locals actually belong to an Indigenous First Nation. But when a group of Mennonites and Lutherans in the town of Laird discover that the land they live on is in fact the former reserve of the Young Chippewayan First Nation, they are forced to acknowledge the history that has brought them to their present confrontation. A chief and descendant of the Young Chippewayan Band decide to invite the local community to a meeting at the central site of the former reserve as members in the town remain on edge. But an inevitable encounter at the town’s historic site compels the characters into a surprising discovery. Myths, assumptions and fears are shattered as this old injustice is about to provide an opportunity for friendship and renew a fierce determination to repair the wrongs of the past.

Cake and refreshments will be served.

Co-sponsored by Prince Albert Chapter of The Council of Canadians.

We Do Outreach Services!

Love Books

JMCPL strives to provide library services for every member of our community and to reach out to those who have difficulty visiting the library in person.  Our Outreach Service provides pickup and delivery of library items from the library to your doorstep.  If you have a physical or age-related disability or illness resulting in limited mobility, you qualify for our free Outreach Service.

Once registered for the service, library staff will contact you in order to discuss what kinds of topics and formats you prefer.  Our staff will select books and other material relating to your personal reading profile.

JMCPL delivers fiction and non-fiction books, movies, magazines, music and books on CD.  The lending period for most Outreach Service materials is six weeks.

Library items are delivered once a month, and you can either apply to have your books delivered by a volunteer (depending on the number of volunteers some locations are unavailable for delivery), or you can have a family member, friend, or neighbor pick up and drop off your items for you.

If you are interested in our Outreach Service, please contact the library at 306-763-8496 and register.
