New Location for Special Collections

We have finished some rearranging and shifting of the adult fiction area.  At the beginning of the fiction section you will now find the ESL, foreign language fiction, and the adult graphic novel collections.  The large print collection has been spaced so it is easier to find items.

Friday movies

It wasn't our swan song (pun intended, Natalie Portman), so a good time was had by all at the final Friday movie of the season. Thanks to all of you who attended and made it fun to keep showing movies and a big thanks to all of our volunteers who helped with all the behind the scenes, dirty work that made these Fridays such a success.

Don't forget about our Tuesday Afternoon Classics, either. This week we're showing Glory, starring a young Denzel Washington and Matthew Broderick. The movie starts at 3:30 p.m. Snacks and refreshments provided.

Black Swan starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis
Final Friday Movie: Black Swan

Join us for the Final Friday Movie of the season as we show the Oscar-nominated, Black Swan. See Oscar-winner Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis battle it out for top spot in the Darren Aronofsky's harrowing depiction of a ballet dancer who turns into the character she's portraying. 

It wouldn't be a final movie without a party, either. We'll have trivia contests, prizes (Emagine gift cards, Red Box gift card, big bags of popcorn), and, of course, cake and refreshments (and your usual movie snacks). Hope to see you here!
