Friends of the Library

Media Release about If Beale Street Could Talk

REEL Wednesdays fundraisers have been organized by the Friends of the SGPL for more than five years.  But for those who may not have had the opportunity to enjoy the event, Karen Gron, REEL Wednesdays volunteer, has some added information. “The movies have become a social event,” she says.  “We greet everyone at the door with coupons and information. There are door prizes before each movie.   It’s really a chance to catch up with old friends or make new ones.” Landmark Cinema offers a discount on a popcorn/pop combo. Jack’s Drive-In and Famoso distribute coupons for their establishments. Long-time sponsor Liquor on McLeod offers a free wine and cheese event prior to each movie. Read entire article.

Showtimes: All films are shown at 7:00 pm at the Landmark Cinemas, 7 Spruce Grove, 130 Century Crossing 

Tickets: Individual movie: $13 (available for purchase at Spruce Grove Public Library)

Who are the Friends of the Library?

The Friends of the Spruce Grove Public Library Society is a non-profit organization that encourages public use and enjoyment of library services and facilities. Friends are community members who believe that a good library is a vital part of our community. The members of Friends focus public attention on library needs and support the programs and services of the Spruce Grove Public Library, through fundraising, promotion and volunteering of personal and professional services. We are on the lookout for a treasurer and secretary. We try to keep our 10 meetings a year short and fun.The positions require a few extra hours each month - or more if you want, as we raise funds and voices for the love of our library. Email us for more information.
