Literature to Film Club

A new spin on the tra­di­tional li­brary book club…

Many of today’s films were in­spired from lit­er­a­ture, but how of­ten do the screen­writ­ers and stu­dios stay faith­ful to the orig­i­nal work? If you en­joy read­ing and watch­ing movies, this club is for you! Once a month, we’ll meet to watch a movie to­gether and then dis­cuss the tran­si­tion and in­ter­pre­ta­tion of lit­er­a­ture on the sil­ver screen.

About a month be­fore each meet­ing, we’ll have mul­ti­ple copies of the book avail­able for check out at the front desk.

The movie will start at 6:00 p.m. with dis­cus­sion to fol­low. Popcorn will be served. You’re wel­come to bring your own drinks along.

Kids’ Summer Party

Tuesday, August 1 from 2p – 4p

Did your kids par­tic­i­pate in the Summer Reading Challenge or Watermelon Club? This party is for them!

Join us for 2 hours packed full of fun!

Outside (weather-​permitting, of course), we’ll have a spe­cial paint­ing project where the kids will wear bubble-​wrap shoes and dance on large sheets of pa­per. Outdoor games in the side yard will be played while the kids wait their turn to paint.

Indoors, we’ll be show­ing the movie Zootopia on a big screen and have an art sta­tion set up in the con­fer­ence room.

And lots of wa­ter­melon to eat… com­plete with a seed spit­ting con­test.

The draw­ing for the Summer Reading Challenge will be done at 4:00 p.m. Stay tuned!
