Mary C. Moore Library celebrated Halloween in style

Library will be closed on Monday, November 11 for Remembrance Day

Mary Poole/Library Columnist

Halloween is so exciting for the children. As one little girl put it. “You can go around and ask for candy and you don’t even have to pay for it.”

One little boy was upset since his mom said he had to walk to go trick or treating. He had wanted to drive his power wheel truck cause. “It goes with my mechanics costume.” One little girl was upset because her hair hadn’t grown long enough for her princess costume. Another little girl comforted her. “Even big stars like Barbie have to wear a wig sometimes.” Some of the costumes at the library Halloween party were incredible. Thanks to everyone who came. It was noisy but I hope everyone enjoyed themselves.

The library will be closed on Monday, November 11 for Remembrance Day. Please remember, on this day, to honour those who have sacrificed and still sacrifice to keep our country safe.

On Tuesday, November 12, at 7 p.m. in the North County Room of the LMC, the Friends of the Library Armchair Travel series presents New Zealand. Doreen Munro is the presenter and will take you on a tour of this country without you having to leave your chair. This is a free event and refreshments are provided.

On Wednesday, November 20 at 7 p.m. at Lacombe City Cinemas, the library film series will be screening “Sometimes Always Never” directed by Carl Hunter. This film is rated PG and was filmed in the UK. It has an 88 per cent rating on rottentomatoes.com. Alan is a tailor who has spent years looking for his missing son who stormed out over a game of Scrabble. His youngest son feels disconnected from his father and Alan must try to repair this relationship while still searching for his missing son. Remember, Wednesdays are bring your own bowl night at the theatre. Get your tickets at the library early since some of our films have been selling out!

We have a few spots left for the Christmas Card-making workshop on Saturday, November 23 or Saturday, November 30 from 9 a.m.- 2 p.m. in the Servus room of the LMC. For $20 you will make 10 beautiful handmade Christmas cards. To register please call, email or come into the library. All supplies and instruction provided.

On Tuesday, December 3 at 7 p.m. in the Read and Relax area of the library the MCMPL book club will be discussing the novel, “Educated” by Tara Westover. Order your copy today and join us for the discussion.

Our book this week is non-fiction. “Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs?” is written by Caitlin Doughty, a funeral director who receives dozens of questions about death, many from children. In this book, Doughty blends her mortician’s knowledge of the body and the history behind common misconceptions about corpses with factual, hilarious and candid answers to thirty-five distinct questions posed by youngsters.
