Snowbird Social

Do you normally winter down South?
Are you missing the all-inclusive vacations this winter?
Wishing you could head to the beach with an umbrella cup in hand?
In an effort to keep our "Snowbirds" busy this winter, we have created the Snowbird Social! Weekly activity packages for adults during the months of January - March. Activity packages could include: brain teasers, word search, sudoku, jokes, colouring activities, and more.
Snowbird Social packages can be printed using the links below.

Online Film Club

There’s something wonderful about watching a movie with a community of people. Though cinemas are closed, and our BIG Screen Movie Night is suspended, the world of online film clubs is thriving. So, Selwyn Public Library is going to give it a try! 

 

Virtual view-alongs are a fantastic way to discover new genres and socialize (virtually) with others. The best part? You can get involved from your sofa.
Each month we will watch a movie on Hoopla (free for library patrons), then join the optional zoom meetings to discuss them! No need to be a movie buff.
February Online Film Club Movie: I Used To Go Here
Watch the movie whenever is convenient for you.
Optional Zoom Meeting: Thursday, February 4th at 8:30 p.m.
