The smallest animated film festival in the world
Seventy-five people attended the third edition of the Festival this year on January 19 and 27 - a big success in spite of the bad weather! Twenty-two animated films from 12 different countries offered 90 minutes of pleasure and reflection. The film which won the public award, A good heart, by Russian filmmaker, Evganiya Jirkova, will receive a cash prize as well as a statuette designed by Alain Boisvert, creator of the Festival, and made by Jean-Philippe Morin.
Alain Boisvert has, himself, been selected by the Festival International du Film sur l'Art (FIFA) for his film, Sharing through generations / Le chemin partagé, filmed as part of a cultural project involving Natasha Smoke Santiago, a Mohawk artists from Akwesasne, and John Ryan, a painter from Godmanchester.
Recruitment of volunteers
As you know, the library is managed solely by volunteers. We are currently in need of certain services: the loan service, communications and publicity, and fundraising. Do you have a few hours to offer? Come and talk to us!
Very good news! Free membership for Dundee, Hinchinbrooke and Huntingdon
As of 2019, membership in the library will be free for the citizens of Huntingdon, Dundee and Hinchinbrooke thanks to an agreement concluded with their municipality. The membership fee is unchanged for citizens of other municipalities.
Subscription to digital versions of Le Devoir and The Montreal Gazette newspapers.
Take a break at the library to read these newspapers on one of our computers. It's free!
Film loan period
Films are now loaned for the same period as the other documents, that is 21 days instead of just 7.
In spite of the support from the municipalities, population and members, the library still needs to raise funds to cover all its expenses, so we will be holding an Easter bake sale on Saturday, April 13 and a garage sale on Saturday, June 1. Keep us in mind when you are doing your spring cleaning!
