This week at the library...

It's the lull before the school year… librarians are on vacation following the end of Summer Reading Club, and it's a quiet week at the library. But we do have one fun program up our sleeves this week...

Central Library, 7:00 p.m.


Join Randy Carter for an irreverent survey of movies based on works of popular literature.

Tragic romance, adventure, World Wars, potboilers. westerns and literary classics are all fair game in an evening that is part "six degrees of separation" and part "trivia quiz." Find out what summer reads were optioned before their first hardcover edition hit the bookstores, and what surefire titles were somehow never produced.
