Gee Gees, Movies for Change coming to Ingersoll Library

By Lynn Sutherland

The Gee Gees! are coming back to the Ingersoll Library.

Tuesday, Dec. 5 at 6:30 p.m.

You saw them perform last year, and we love hearing them so we invited them back again. Families are invited to the children's area to join in the musical fun with the quartet, the Gee Gees! They sing, they play - Christmas songs old and new. This is a free program suitable for all ages. Please join us for this evening of music in the children's area. Join in the singalong if you like.

Movies for Change: The Age of Stupid

Wednesday, Dec. 6 at 6 p.m.

This movie stars Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite as a man living in the devastated future world of 2055, looking back at old footage from our time and asking: why didn't we stop climate change when we had the chance?

This is part of our Movies for Change series: thought provoking documentaries exploring relevant social issues. The film is followed by a discussion with an expert panel and the audience. Light snacks and refreshments will be available.

If you have any questions about this event please email socialmedia@ocl.net.
