Summertime is Movie Time!

Movies and summer just seem to go together, don't they? Well we think so, and we have some great ones coming up for kids, teens, and families. Tomorrow at 6:30 p.m., we're showing The Iron Giant! Kids of all ages and families are welcome to attend. Bring snacks and get ready for one of the coolest movies ever, one that answers the question "How can an 11-year-old boy keep a 50-foot tall, metal-eating robot from space a secret?" Following the movie, there will be a discussion of the book the film is based on, The Iron Giant: A Story in Five Nights, by Ted Hughes. The discussion is recommended for kids ages 9-12. On Friday at 2:30 p.m., teens are invited to the monthly Anime and Manga meet-up for a screening of My Neighbor Totoro, a classic from Studio Ghibli. There will be Japanese snacks while they last, and a chance to say goodbye to Teen Librarian Cynthia, who will be much missed as she leaves us for another job opportunity. Last, but certainly not least, a movie that needs no introduction: The Wizard of Oz! We're planning to show the story of Dorothy and her friends on the front lawn on Wednesday, August 20th beginning at around 7:45 p.m., immediately following our Summer Reading Club Awards Ceremony. In case of bad weather this event will have to be cancelled - so keep your fingers crossed for a beautiful evening! All of these events are free and will take place at the Central Library. We hope that you'll be able to come!
