Movies & NFB Films

PARL has a public performance movie license which allows us to screen copyrighted full-length, movies and documentaries for the public. Children and families are invited to come to the library for popular family movies. Bring along your favorite, movie-munching treats (nut-free please). All features are free.
The NFB Film Club is a FREE initiative specifically created for all Public Libraries across the country. NFB distributes bold and distinctive social issue documentaries, auteur animation, alternative drama and innovative digital content that provide the world with a unique Canadian perspective.
