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.

Beep Beep..... Reminder!

Hey everyone, I bet you guys saved the date but still I thought I’d go ahead and personally remind you all about the free play for all ages which is this Saturday, January 11 2014 at 10 AM. The play is based on the book Tomas and the Library Lady by Pat Mora and will be held at The Centrum, across from the library. I hope all of you can make it. It shall be uber fun.

Signs of Improvement

Shelving Being InstalledYou may have noticed that there has been quite the activity with our collection upstairs. That’s because we are currently shifting our collection. After some deep pondering the branch decided that we could create a better browsing experience for you, our customers.

With the decision came the task of moving a whole bunch of books around, but it will be worth it for you, our customers. So thank you for bearing with us. If you need any help finding a book during this transitional phase (or any other time) then please don’t hesitate asking for our assistance. We expect everything to be back to normal by the end of next week.
