Classic Senior Movies at the Library - Come and see an old favorite!


Come and join us for a Classic Senior Movie Morning. We'll be viewing a film from 1935 starring Irene Dunn, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Randolph Scott.

 

"Fun's in fashion when Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers enter the ultachic Parisian world of high fashion. This third Astaire/Rogers film is a silky adaptation of the 1933 Broadway hit which starred Bob Hope and Fred MacMurray.  It features a jaunty romantic plot, fabulous sets, memorable music and above all, incomparable dance magic to match the score" (from the DVD case).

The move will start shortly after 10:00 in the Ear Elliott Room. Bring a friend.

Senior Classic Movie

Come and enjoy a classic movie with friends at the library. On Friday, January 3rd we will show a a  classic movie from 1941 starring Veronica Lake and Joel McCrea.

After his producers point out that he know nothing of hardship, he hits  the road as a hobo. He finds the lovely Veronica Lake-and more trouble than he ever dreamed of."

The World's Strongest Librarian : a memoir of Tourette's, faith, strength, and the power of family

by Joshua Hanagarne

An inspiring story of how a Mormon kid with Tourette's found salvation in books and weight-lifting. By the time he was twenty, the young Mormon had reached his towering adult height of 6'7' when-while serving on a mission for the Church of Latter Day Saints-his Tourette's tics escalated to nightmarish levels.Determined to conquer his affliction, Josh underwent everything from quack remedies to lethargy-inducing drug regimes to Botox injections that paralyzed his vocal cords and left him voiceless for three years. Undeterred, Josh persevered to marry and earn a degree in Library Science.
