Kids’ Movie Day: A Christmas Carol
Friday, December 5th, 2:30 pm

Warm up at the library with a fun holiday movie! Refreshments will be served. December 5th and 12th.

Robert Zemeckis directs this animated version of the Yuletide classic A Christmas Story. The story centers on Ebenezer Scrooge (Jim Carrey), a penny-pinching miser who cares nothing for the people around him, least of all his hopelessly downtrodden employee Bob Cratchit (Gary Oldman) and infectiously optimistic nephew, Fred (Colin Firth). On Christmas Eve, after a frightening encounter with the ghost of his deceased business partner, Jacob Marley, Scrooge is visited by three spirits — the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come — who take him on an eye-opening journey to expose the truths he is reluctant to face. Author: Perry Seibert

“Return of the Soldier” by Rebecca West

The evening book group is continuing to explore books of the early 1900’s. Return of the Soldier by Rebecca West was one of the few novels about The Great War (World War I) to be written during the war; many came later.  The Soldier in question, Chris Baldry, has returned with amnesia and is living in the memory of the times before the war and before many other changes in England and in his own life.  Different forms of love, shifts in class structure, and yearning for simpler times all play a part in this novel.

Copies of the book are available at the library front desk; everyone is welcome to join in on the discussion.

Kids’ Movie Day: Disneynature Bears
Friday, November 21st, 2:30 pm

For November, we are showing bear movies for kids! Popcorn and juice will be provided.

Disneynature’s Bears takes viewers on an educational and entertaining adventure through the Alaskan wilderness, where the documentary follows a fiercely protective mama bear named Sky and her two young cubs, Amber and Scout, over the course of an entire year. Narrated by John C. Reilly, the film trails this young family as they venture down a mountain in search of sustenance, and encounter a variety of threats, including a pair of imposing male bears named Magnus and Chinook, as well as a crafty — and very hungry — wolf named Tikani.

THPL Lego Club
Wednesday, November 19th, 3:30 pm

Lego Club will be having three meetings this month on Wednesdays.

This week’s theme is “Favorite Food.”

The library provides all the legos so that kids don’t need to worry about bringing any of their own. In fact, it might be best for kids to leave their own legos at home, so that they don’t get mixed in with everybody else’s.

The Lego club will involve special building challenges, where participants will be given a specific allotment of legos and time to build something really cool, then show off to fellow lego builders at the end.

So if you enjoy building cool lego stuff, and like to face a challenge, then this club is for you!
