Cyclists wanting to learn more about keeping their bikes in running order are invited to Beginner Bike Maintenance, presented by HUB Cycling Saturday, April 16 (1:30-3:30 p.m.) Participants can bring their bikes with them, learn how to do a basic inspection, clean and oil their bike, check brakes and gears, deal with a flat tire and know when to take their bike to the shop.

Francois Girard and Don McKellar’s The Red Violin (1998) tells the tale of a very special instrument, a perfectly crafted 17th-century violin finished with a mysterious red glaze. The final masterpiece of a virtuoso craftsman, the violin sits in a Montreal auction house waiting to be sold. As the auction proceeds, the violin’s history is revealed in four interconnected tales spanning 300 years. Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Don McKellar, Sandra Oh, and Colm Feore. Rated PG.

Founded in 2014, National Canadian Film Day will see screenings across the country in communities and online to promote Canadian film and foster a sense of Canadian identity (For info see Canadianfilmday.ca).

The Cloverdale Library is located at 5642 176A Street, Surrey.
