Library Advisory Board meeting

The Library Advisory Board's next meeting is Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at 5:30p. Agenda available.

Rescheduled Matinee Movie

Due to the power outage on Wednesday, August 10, we are rescheduling one of our family matinee movies! 

The new date is Tuesday, August 23.  All matinee movies begin at 1:30, and this one runs for 97 minutes.  Children under 9 must be accompanied by an adult.  Popcorn will be provided.  You may bring your own drinks with lids, pillows, blankets, etc.  Please, no peanuts or uncovered drinks.  There will be a drawing for a bag of popcorn for your own family movie night.

Unfortunately, our movie license company will only allow us to advertise titles in-house.  This movie is rated G.  You can call the Children's Department at (248) 618-7692 to get the title, or try to figure it out from the hint below:
