A League of Their Own (1992)
Saturday, June 11th, 2pm

This 1992 comedy sheds light on a little-known chapter of American sports history with its story of a struggling team in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. The league was formed during the draft of World War II which resulted in a shortage of male baseball players. Beginning when a savvy baseball scout (Jon Lovitz) finds a pair of sisters who turn out to be incredibly promising recruits (Geena Davis, Lori Petty), the sisters are signed to play for the Rockford Peaches, a bunch of underdogs who are managed by a former home-run king (Tom Hanks). Also starring Madonna and Rosie O'Donnell.

Come enjoy some popcorn and a movie in the Community Room every month at the library!


WHEN FOOTBALL WAS FOOTBALL

Join author Joe Ziemba for a humorous look at the wacky early days of professional football, focusing on the NFL’s oldest franchise, the Chicago (now Arizona) Cardinals. Relive the rowdy, formative years of football through audience interaction, rare archival photos, and surprising insight into local historical figures such as Red Grange, Jim Thorpe, George Halas and Al Capone. All are part of the curious (and often comical) history of football—back “When Football Was Football!”
