Stop by our newest adult discussion group called Movies&Books. Movies are typically screened the first Saturday of every month at 1:00pm. Copies of the selected book are available ahead of time from the Adult Reference Desk. Our discussion immediately follows the movie screening, to chat about which was better – the movie or the book! Feel free to attend the screening, the discussion, or both. No registration is required; however, seating at the movie screening is limited to 125.
