Take a break from the heat and join us at the Chippawa Branch library on Tuesday August
7th at 6pm for our feature film “Accidental Husband” a romantic comedy starring Colin Firth,
Uma Thurman and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Successful relationship expert and radio talk host Dr
Emma Lloyd seems to have all her stars aligned, fame and fortune, impending book deal, loving
relationship – and about to be married. Meanwhile New York firefighter Patrick Sullivan has no
idea his seemingly idyllic life was about to go up in smoke – when his fiancée is the recipient
of advice from the “expert” to break the engagement. The wounded party gets involved in
a misguided prank to get back at the doctor. When the two meet, Emma is confronted with
some new ideas and sparks fly. This film was originally released in England in 2008 and only
released in North America as a DVD in 2012. The rating is PG.
Our Overdrive drop-in sessions continue this Saturday August 11th from 2-4 pm in the
Reference department at the Victoria Avenue library. This is a first come service, no registration
is required. Unfortunately the Kindle eReader is still not supported through the Overdrive
service in Canada. This has to do with licensing and complicated rights management. Public
libraries have little control in this.
Now in August the Rosberg Gallery will feature a display of paintings of scenes from the Battle
of Queenston Heights from the Niagara Falls Heritage Foundation Collection. The library
received funding from the federal government's 1812 Commemoration Fund to have the
paintings framed and prepared for display. These paintings are meant to be shown in the
community and are available to be loaned out to secure locations. Parts of the collection have
already been requested and will be on display in other locations in southern Ontario this fall.
Please contact the library for more information.
