Montclair Public Library hosts the Green Film Series.

According to the Montclair town’s website, this event is set to remind people of what’s important during the holiday season: “During the holiday season – as we are buying gifts instead of necessities — we can all use a reminder that there are many meaningful ways to give and spread joy.”

According to the event page, the Story of Stuff Project’s journey began with a 20-minute online movie about the way we make, use and throw away material (“stuff”) in our lives. That now-famous short film — along with seven others — make up Annie Leonard’s complete collection of films that clearly describe the issues with “stuff”– Stuff, Bottled Water, Cosmetics, Electronics, Broke, Cap and Trade, Change and Citizens United vs. FEC.

Celebrate the holidays by reminding your friends, family, neighbor or yourself of what’s important during the season of giving. The Green Film Series screening is free and also holds an open discussion afterwards. For further information, contact the office of Environmental Affairs at 973-509-5721, or email them at

The Montclair Public Library is located at 50 South Fullerton Avenue. All events at the library are free and open to the public.

Another holiday celebration coming soon to the library is the 26th Annual Community Kwanzaa Celebration on Dec. 20 at 2 p.m. in the library’s auditorium. The library encourages people to “join friends and neighbors of the Montclair community as [they] celebrate Kwanzaa. This year [there will be] music, drums and African dancers courtesy of Umoja Dance Company.” No registration required is required, and all are welcome.

Remember what’s important this holiday season by celebrating with friends, family and members of the community.
