Movie Night for the month of June

While you're busy signing up for Summer Reading Club, and checking here for upcoming events, you may take note of our decidedly old school, mystery themed movies this month.

Alfred Hitchcock's suspense thriller The Birds shows on May 7th.

May 14th, it's another Hitchcock nail biter, Rear Window.

After a week off for Third Thursday Gaming Night, we've got The Prestige starring Huch Jackman and Christian Bale on May 28th.

Think Jackman and discussed a Wolverine vs Batman movie while on the set? Me neither.

Of course, that's just the tip of the iceberg at this year's SRC!

SRC Volunteering

SRC is fast approaching and we need volunteers at the library.

I’m looking for teen volunteers for Summer Reading Club this summer, and whether you volunteered last year or wish to do so for the first time, you’ll have to sign up. If you want to volunteer, drop by the library and ask for me (if I’m not here, someone else should be able to help you). We have a slightly different sign up sheet and also we need to know t-shirt sizes, so you’ll need to fill that out (with a parent signature).

Registration for SRC should open up later this month.

Hope to see you soon!
