Monday, September 9
Come to the library to enjoy a classic movie and some free popcorn. This month we will enjoy the delightful comedy It Happened One Night. Starring Claudette Colbert as a pampered socialite who falls for a roguish reporter played by Clark Gable, it swept the major category Oscars in 1934.
September is Library Card Sign-Up Month! We are celebrating all month long. Sign up for a new card and you can spin our wheel for a small prize!
Already have a card? Great! We will be offering a special patron appreciation week, including a fine amnesty. Bring your card in to the library (Yes, you must bring your card!) during the week of September 9th through September 14th and we will forgive your late fees from our library. We are not able to forgive fines from other libraries or lost item fees.
Coffee and Conversation
Second and fourth Wednesday of each month
11 am – 1 pm
Starting in September, drop in to the library for a hot beverage and a chance to meet new friends or visit old ones. Bring your knitting or your book, a board game or an article you want to talk about. We will provide the coffee and tea, you provide your own lunch or a treat to share.
Does this all sound a little vague? Good. This will be your group, and we want you to shape it. Everyone is welcome!
In all the fun of summer reading, don’t forget that we have programs for grown-ups, too. Our classic movie Monday gives you a chance to revisit an old favorite or view a classic movie for the very first time.

The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956)
James Stewart and Doris Day give magnificent performances in this Hitchcock classic as Ben and Jo McKenna, an American couple vacationing in Morocco, whose son is kidnapped and taken to England. Caught up in international espionage, the McKennas’ lives hang in the balance as they race to save their son in the chilling, climactic showdown in London’s famous Royal Albert Hall.
The movie is free and so are the snacks. Everyone is welcome!
Good news! We were able to reschedule the event cancelled by the spring blizzard.

BAD ART NIGHT
Tuesday, February 12th, 6:30-8:00 pm
We may not all be Rembrandt, but anyone can make bad art. Bring your sweetie or your pals to the library. We will have a wide variety of materials for making art, plus free snacks. Once everyone has a chance to create, we will have a little art show, where everyone can vote for their favorite work. The “winner” will get a delightful booby prize. Grownups only, please.
This is clearly a portrait of Lucille Ball.
