Remember to sign-up to read About Schmidt written by Louis Begley. We will be reading the book in September and watching the movie, starring Jack Nicholson, in October. About Schmidt is a story of a newly widowed retiree who is dealing with his loneliness along with his botched relationship between himself and his daughter. About Schmidt is a great example of a producer taking parts and pieces of a great book and turning it into a gem of an original film.
Let’s get geared up for autumn by making fall candle holders out of mason jars. We provide the materials you bring your creativity. This is a fun way to learn some basic crafting skills, meet others who love to craft, and take a free project home made by your own hands.
The library will be showing Me Before You starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin. Based on a bestselling novel by Jojo Moyes, Me Before You is a classic romance with a twist. It’s a story of an unexpected relationship that blossoms between a contented, small town Englishwoman and the wealthy, paralyzed Londoner who hires her as his caretaker.
Thanks to all for a great Summer Reading program!
