Throughout April come to the library and help us decorate & paint the rain barrel we will use to water our grounds! On sunny days this can be done outside. On rainy/overcast days it will be in the Teen Area. ALL AGES (kids and adults) are welcomed to help!

This month’s selection is: The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio (2002) by Terry Ryan

The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio introduces Evelyn Ryan, an enterprising woman who kept poverty at bay with wit, poetry, and perfect prose during the "contest era" of the 1950s and 1960s. Evelyn's winning ways defied the church, her alcoholic husband, and antiquated views of housewives. To her, flouting convention was a small price to pay when it came to raising her six sons and four daughters.

    Contact: Sandra Giannella   610.623.0239 ex 307   ladirector@delcolibraries.org
   

Starting Thursday, April 24 at 7 PM, No Place for Hate movies are back with the The Book Thief based on the beloved best-selling book by Markus Zusak.

                                                                              

 Rated PG-13   131 min 

This profoundly moving story can be read before or after viewing the movie about a girl who transforms the lives of those around her during World War II, Germany. Although Liesel is illiterate when she is adopted by a German couple (OSCAR Winners Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson), her adoptive father encourages her to learn to read. Ultimately, the power of words helps Liesel and Max (Ben Schnetzer), a Jew hiding in the family's home, escape from the events unfolding around them in this extraordinary, acclaimed film directed by Brian Percival (Downton Abbey).

Stay for the discussion on book to movie, or if you haven’t read the book first, a dialogue about issues presented in the movie that became a “place for Hate”.

Free popcorn served. Bring your own beverage.

Decorate MFL's Rain Barrel

Throughout April come to the library and help us decorate & paint the rain barrel we will use to water our grounds! On sunny days this can be done outside. On rainy/overcast days it will be in the Teen Area. ALL AGES (kids and adults) are welcomed to help!

Rain barrels collect rain water from gutters and can be used to water plants, gardens, etc. Help us make a difference in the community and educate everyone on how to conserve our water. The finished product will be revealed at Middletown's Community Day @ PSU Brandywine Campus on Saturday, May 3rd, 2014.
