This week at the library...

MONDAY
Central Library, 6:30 p.m.

Le Petit Cinema presents...
A CONNECTICUT YANKEE
AT KING ARTHUR'S COURT
Are you getting ready for the solar eclipse next Monday? Join us for a lighthearted Bing Crosby flick, with a solar eclipse included! Crosby stars in this light and lively musical version of Mark Twain's timeless comedy. A bump on the head sends Hank Martin, 1912 mechanic, to Arthurian Britain, 528 A.D. But thanks to some American know-how, the crooner is quickly hailed as a wiz of a wizard and granted the right to teach the King's fetching niece (Rhonda Fleming) some decidedly contemporary romantic tricks. Alas, there's trouble afoot when Bing locks "magical" horns with the all-powerful Merlin and is challenged to a joust by Sir Lancelot for the hand of the beautiful princess!
