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.

CREED (2015)
Satudary, May 13th, 2pm

Adonis Johnson never knew his famous father, world heavy weight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there's no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed's legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa. Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo - the fierce rival who became his closest friend.

Enjoy some popcorn and a movie the second Saturday of every month at the library!


THE LIFE OF ALEXANDER HAMILTON
Tuesday, May 16th, 6:00pm
 
After being out of the limelight for over 200 years, Alexander Hamilton has recently taken center stage again, starring in an increasingly popular Broadway musical. As one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, Hamilton is recognized today as an outstanding statesman. He fought in the American Revolution alongside President George Washington, who appointed him to be the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury. It was believed by many that he could have become a future President of the United States. And then suddenly scandal hit.
 
Historian, Jim Gibbons, will take you on the rollercoaster life of one of America’s most talked about founding fathers. From his skyrocketing in popularity and fame to his sudden downfall due to scandal and ultimately, his tragic death, you will not want to miss Gibbons’ riveting presentation of Hamilton’s legacy.

HEROES ON THE AIR

Join radio historian and "Those Were the Days" host Steve Darnall for a "super" evening of sounds from the past, featuring some of the many heroes who made their way from comics for radio—and a few who started on radio and went on to conquer the world.
