Some would say it takes skill. Some go through an in-depth analysis. Some just close their eyes and point.

No matter your method, I think the Oscar Ballot contest is one of my favorite activities we have at the Library.

The Library will be closed on Saturday, February 17th, in observance of Presidents Day. The book drop & sale in the front vestibule are available 24/7 for your convenience.

Matinée Café

The Matinée Café is a monthly movie showing for adults on one Sunday every month! For January-March, there will be time for a light soup supper after the movie.

Mark your calendars--the next Matinée Café will be held on Sunday, February 18th. The house will open at 2pm, and the movie will begin at 2:30. Soup's on around 4:15. This month's movie is My Sailor, My Love (2023, NR).

If you'd like to volunteer to make a soup or bread for March's movie, there is a signup sheet at the Circulation Desk.
