NFB Film Club Night – Aboriginal Architecture, Living Architecture

architecture

Thursday, December 14, 7:00 (92 min.)

Everyone is familiar with traditional types of Aboriginal architecture.  But how much do we really know about the various structures Indigenous peoples designed, engineered and built?  Featuring expert commentary and stunning imagery, this doc provides a virtual tour of seven Aboriginal communities, revealing how each is actively reinterpreting and adapting traditional forms for contemporary purposes.

Frontier Life – New Database!

Frontier Life

JMCPL is pleased to announce we are offering a new database to our patrons!

This online collection captures the lives of people living on the edge of European settlement across the various frontiers of North America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Through a huge array of digitized primary source materials it documents the creation of new states, trade networks, and movements of people in these regions alongside the marginalization and decline of indigenous peoples. Material ranges across four centuries, from the seventeenth to the early twentieth century.

Frontier Life brings together documents from sixteen archives and libraries around the world. This geographical spread of material allows users to take a  comparative approach or focus on a particular region, making it ideal for teaching and student projects, as well as more in-depth scholarly research.

JMCPL & PAPPG Seed Library

Just in time for Spring!

seed library

The Prince Albert Seed Library is a collaborative effort between
Prince Albert Parkland Permaculture Guild and John M. Cuelenaere Public Library

What is a Seed Library?

A seed library is a library that lends seeds instead of books. The concept is that one would take out seeds in the spring with the intention of saving seeds and returning some of their saved seeds in the fall. Gardeners grow the plants in their garden and at the end of the season, they let a few plants ‘go to seed.’ From those plants, they collect seeds to return to the Library to replenish its inventory.  Seed savers are also encouraged to gift their own varieties to the seed library for other people to try. The seeds that are available will be ones that can be grown locally, and are acclimatized to our local growing conditions.

For more information please visit the Seed Library page on our website:
