Oceanside Public Library’s Annual Spring Egg Hunt and Storytime

The Oceanside Public Library invites parents, caregivers and children ages seven years and under to participate in springtime stories, songs, crafts and an egg hunt in the Mission Branch Library Community Room, 3861-B Mission Avenue, on Friday, April 7, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. (English) and 11:30 a.m. (Spanish), and in the Civic Center Library Community Rooms, 330 North Coast Highway, on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. (English). This event is free and sponsored by the Friends of the Oceanside Public Library.  For more information on library programs and services, please call the Oceanside Public Library at (760) 435-5600 or visit the website at www.oceansidepubliclibrary.org.

On Tuesday, April 18 at 5:00 p.m. we will be screening Libby, Montana, a documentary about the City of Libby, where 70 years of strip-mining has exposed workers and their families, and thousands of residents to a toxic form of asbestos, creating what the EPA has called the worst case of industrial poisoning in American History.  This film documents the history of the town, the mining company that knew of the exposure, and the cleanup efforts that continue.

On Tuesday, May 16 at 5:00 p.m. we will be screening Of Men and War, a film that follows Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families to a first-of-its kind PTSD treatment center.  Made between 2003 and 2014, Of Men and War begins with a scenic drive through California’s Napa Valley, where therapist and social worker Fred Gusman, who pioneered revolutionary PTSD programs at the Veterans Administration in the late 1970s, opened The Pathway Home residential treatment center in Yountville in 2008. The beauty of the surroundings stands in stark contrast to the intense inner turmoil suffered by the veterans arriving.

These free film screenings are sponsored by the Friends of the Oceanside Public Library and are provided for free in partnership with PBS POV.   For more information, please visit the library’s website at http://www.oceansidepubliclibrary.org or call (760) 435-5600.

    St. Thomas More Catholic Church events aren’t hitting the calendar. Perhaps they’re not being submitted properly? This just began occurring about six months ago. Please advise if they’ve been received…..Spring Ring on April 16th; Gala celebration on April 29th; Bible Study on May 4th.

    Thank you.
