April Showings:

This month we are featuring movies about those brave enough to challenge the system!

*****While we encourage all patrons to visit the Library as often as possible, we do ask that on during the movie show times you not stop by to “jump on the computer” or “drop the kids off to play”. Its distracting to those who are in attendance to view the movie. Please revisit us during our normal hours if not watching the movie.************
