SUFFRAGETTE (2015)
Saturday, July 22nd, 2pm

In early 20th-century Britain, the growing suffragette movement forever changes the life of working wife and mother Maud Watts (Carey Mulligan). Galvanized by political activist Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep), Watts joins a diverse group of women who fight for equality and the right to vote. Faced with increasing police action, Maud and her dedicated suffragettes must play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse, risking their jobs, homes, family and lives for a just cause.

Enjoy some popcorn and a movie every Saturday this summer!


READY FOR PHASE IV
 
Phase III was a quick one. The Community Room has its new floor and it's just about done. In preparation for Phase IV, the Children's Department will be closed starting Tuesday, April 4th, so staff can pack up and move their stuff down to the Community Room. On Tuesday, April 11th, the Children's Department will re-open for limited services in the Community Room while renovation takes place upstairs in the Children's Department. 

The Teen Loft will stay open during Phase IV.
