The Lego Movie

Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Craig Berry, Will Ferrell, Nick Offerman; Warner Brothers; Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller; Rated PG; 101 minutes; 2014

Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure, is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane Dehaan, Colm Feore, Felicity Jones, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field; Columbia Pictures; Directed by Marc Webb; Rated PG-13; 141 minutes; 2014

Spider-Man’s conflict has been within himself: the struggle between Peter Parker and the responsibilities of Spider-Man. But Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin. It’s great to be Spider-Man, but it comes at a price: only he can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.

Toddler Time is a program series designed as a shared library experience for two year olds, with a caregiver. The librarian will share age appropriate stories, songs, fingerplays, activities and crafts in a group setting. Adults who accompany Toddlers are encouraged to actively participate as a model for their child. It is our goal to provide an educational experience that is also entertaining, and to nurture an early love of books and reading.
For children ages 24-36 months with an adult caregiver.

Drop in for stories, songs, fingerplays and a simple craft!

Pre-school story hour is a weekly, 30-minute story program for independent children age three to five. The librarian will share the best in children's literature and illustration, and will enhance the story time with songs, fingerplays, flannelboard and occasional crafts. In addition to sharing enriching literature, we will reinforce traditional pre-school concepts such as counting, identifying colors, animal names, etc. Pre-school children with rich and varied literacy experiences have many advantages when they begin school.
For preschoolers ages 3 - 5.

Drop in for stories and fun!
