Movie Days and National Library Week

Next week is National Library Week. The theme is a very exciting one: Worlds Connect @ Your Library. Now, it's true that this theme is a huge improvement over last year's theme (A Circle of Knowledge), but it is still not super fun. However, since we bring the party, we are livening things up! On Monday April 13th we are having a Family Movie Day. Local schools are closed, so we will be playing movies all day that day. We will have free popcorn, cookies, and drinks. Here is the schedule:

11-12: A short movie about a spring holiday, a dog, and a bunch of Peanuts
12-1:30- Revist some zoo animals as they roam around Africa
1:30-2:30- A movie about a dog who is a TV action star who realizes that he isn't really a superhero.
2:30-4:30- A movie about a warrior mouse, based on a popular children's book by Kate DiCamillo
5:30-7:30- A movie about a pampered puppy who is dognapped in Mexico.

If you can't figure out what these movies are, come in the library and we'll be glad to let you know! There will be other events throughout the week. On Thursday April 16, we will have a teen volunteer meeting at 5:00. If you need volunteer hours, or if you just need something to keep you busy, come by and get some information. After our meeting we will be showing a teen movie. I will have more details about teen volunteers and the teen movie later this week.
