The City of Oceanside released a Notice of Preparation and Public Scoping Meeting for an EIR on November 22, 2017.

Silent Film Thursdays At Library – Beginning January 18, 2018

 SHHHHHH, it’s the Library… Beginning January 18, 2018 and continuing every Third Thursday, the Oceanside Public Library will be screening Silent Classic Films in the Foundation Room at the Civic Center Library, 330 N Coast Hwy, Oceanside. Open to all ages.

 On January 18 at 6:00 p.m., laugh along to the slapstick comedy of Charlie Chaplin in a series of short films. The library will screen Charlie Chaplin’s 1915 classic The Tramp, and his 1916 films The Vagabond and The Pawnshop.  These shorts are exemplary of Chaplin’s classic slapstick comedy and unlucky-in-love characters, and serve as a great introduction to the Silent Film genre.

On February 15 at 6:00 p.m., celebrate making it through Valentine’s Day with a screening of the 1922 German Expressionist horror film Nosferatu, directed by F. W. Murnau. Intended to be destroyed soon after release, this unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula is the original vampire film.  Some copies of the film survived, and the film went on to be regarded as a masterpiece of early cinema.  The Library will be continuing this Silent Film Thursday at the Library on the third Thursday of every month at 6:00 p.m. through June.  Stay tuned for more titles and themes!

This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Oceanside Public Library and is open to the public. For more information, please visit the library’s website at 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.
