Popcorn & A Movie
We will be hosting movie night on the 4th Friday of each month.  Sometimes it will be a movie for the whole family, sometimes for teens and adults and sometimes, just for adults.  We will have a registration sheet 1 week prior to the movie.  Registration is just so we know people are planning to attend - you may always attend even if you are not registered.  Just know that if no one has registered then it will be canceled.  The title of the movie will be announced 1-2 weeks prior to the showing. The movie will start just as the library is closing - so please be prompt to get in before the doors are locked!
