February Newsletter Adults

We have great programming coming to you in February to honor both Black History Month and Valentine’s Day!
Filmmaker, Craig Dudnik, will be screening his film “Alice’s Ordinary People” (unrated). The movie documents the journey of Alice Tregay (1929-2015), an ordinary Chicago woman who stood up to injustice in her community. Alice opposed “Willis Wagons”, marched during the Civil Rights Movement with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and worked tirelessly to create Operation Breadbasket. Her efforts to bring about racial equality are an inspiration for all generations. To learn more about Alice’s story, visit the library for this free program. Registration is not required, and walk-ins are welcome!
DIY Club is back and we have a great project planned for Valentine’s Day. We will be making our own beauty products! We will be making a Mojito Foot Rub, a Chocolate Facial, Sugar Scrubs, and Bath Salts. Keep if for yourself or give it to someone you love! Registration is required.
The Library will be showing the movie, “The Martian”, starring Matt Damon. When astronauts blast off from the planet Mars, they leave behind Mark Watney (Matt Damon), presumed dead after a fierce storm. With only a meager amount of supplies, the stranded visitor must utilize his wits and spirit to find a way to survive on the hostile planet. The movie and snacks are free but, registration is required.
Our Book Into Movie Club will watch the movie, “Rebecca”, a 1940 Alfred Hitchcock classic starring Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine. “Rebecca” is the story of a young woman who marries a fascinating widower only to find out that she must live in the shadow of his former wife, Rebecca, who died mysteriously several years earlier. You don’t have to read the book to sign-up for the movie. Be sure to sign up for the next Book Into Movie,  Sense and Sensibility, by Jane Austen. Registration required.
The library will be beginning its annual Poetry Contest this month. Be sure to visit us online or stop at the front desk for an entry slip and contest rules.  All ages from Kindergarten-Adult can enter!
