National Canadian Film Day

We invite you to celebrate the

5th Annual National Canadian Film Day

When:  WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18 – 1:30 pm

Where:  ALMONTE BRANCH, Mississippi Mills Public Library

In this award winning film released in June 2017, Maudie is based on the true story of Nova Scotia folk artist Maude Lewis, a woman crippled with arthritis who, after a rough upbringing, finds herself married to a surly fish peddler as her bright and quirky nature paintings gain in popularity.

Wednesday Afternoon Films

Do you find the winters long?    At the Almonte branch we are showing films twice a month on Wednesday afternoons throughout the months of January, February and March.  If you’d like to stay and discuss the film afterward, we are up for that and if you just want to watch the film and leave when it’s over, that’s okay too.

Stay tuned for the Fall line up!


With branches in Almonte and Pakenham, the library offers 67,000+ items, both print and digital.
