Saturday @ the Movies

Movie ReelDon’t let the fact that we’re closed on Sundays get you down—you will be able to get your movie fix at our NEW Saturday @ the Movies Program. Our fun, FREE, family movie will next be shown on Saturday, December 18th starting at 2 PM. For title and rating information, please ask at the Information Desk or grab one of our December issues of Check It Out for full details!

Just as an important note, our Saturday @ the Movies program will only be shown if we have a volunteer to monitor the movie. If you would like to help out and volunteer, please stop by the Information Desk for more information. Our volunteers make important programs like this one possible!
