The Summer Thriller Theater at GP

Are you tired of all of this Summer Heat?  My friends the meteorologists say that it is going to get even warmer.  One good way to stay cool is to beat the heat at your local library.  At the Galena Park Branch, we will be showing a series of free movies throughout the summer.  Yep... it is a free movie and free is always free.  Rest assured that we will be playing some of the most interesting movies ever.  Our next movie will be a show about some animated toys.  I really think that a lot of you will like this.  It will be two movies shown back to back starting at 2:00 PM on Thursday 17 June 2010.  Feel free to bring your own snacks to the movie!!
