On June 7 we will show a movie from 1954 also starring Desi Arnaz, Keenan Wynn, and Marjorie Main. “Vacation in a trailer can be so funny!”
On June 21 we will show a movie from 1946 also starring Esther Williams and Van Johnson. 
“To prevent a libel case against the paper, a reporter tries to compromise the reputation of a tycoon's slandered daughter.”

Put Those Books Down For a Sec…So You Can Win More Books

Did you know though that there will be a door prize given away as well? That’s right. Those who attend the program will be entered to win a $20 gift card for a local bookstore. We’ll draw the name at the end of the presentation and one lucky winner will walk away with the gift card right then and there. How cool is that?

That’s not all. A winner will be picked at all five of our presentations. Check our calendar for all the dates. Don’t you want to be one of the lucky five?

There's No Mystery When It Comes To Our Volunteers

A couple of weeks ago the branch held a party to thank our volunteers. In addition to getting to know one another better, library staff hosted a murder mystery game where literary characters where the suspects. A great time was had by all. To commemorate the occasion we put this video together.
