Movie this Friday

Hi everyone!  At the Maud Marks Library we've been showing movies every Friday, and we'll do it again this week at 1 PM.  However, there has been a slight change in plans.  We will no longer be showing a movie about pre-historic animals making their way through climate change.  Instead we will be showing a movie about a Viking who befriends a fantastical creature.   Can't guess what the movie is?  Give us a call and we'll tell you since we can't post the title here.  Or, just show up on Friday at 1 PM for popcorn and fun!
