Movie Quote of the Month in January at the Wakarusa Public Library

by Shondra Brown on December 22, 2014

The Wakarusa library will be closing at noon on New Year’s Eve (December 31), and will remain closed all day on January 1.  We look forward to seeing you in the New Year and will resume normal business hours on Friday, January 2, from 9:00 am – 5:30 p.m.  

January is ‘Movie Quote of the Month’ contest time!  Find our mystery quote by the front desk and see if you can identify the movie that it is from.  Here’s a hint, we have the movie here at the library!  Enter your guess of the movie title for your chance to win a book prize bundle.  An entry may be filled out at each library visit.  The contest will run from January 5-24, and the winner will be drawn on January 26! 

Join us on January 5 as registration begins for our Winter/Spring programs!  Patrons will be able to sign up beginning at 9:00 a.m. for the following programs; Beginning Story Hour (the session runs from January 28 – March 18), Preschool Story Hour (the session runs from January 26 – May 5), and the Young Adult and Adult Winter Reading Program (January 5 – February 28). 

Registration will also begin on January 5 for the Young Adult Book Club.  During this session, students will be reading The Invention of Hugo Cabret, and watching the movie as well.  The movie will be shown on Friday, February 6 (3:15 – 5:15 p.m.), and then the discussion will be held on Friday, February 13 (3:15 – 4:15 p.m.).  Registered participants may check out the book from the library, or secure a copy of their own.  Discussion questions will be provided, and refreshments will be served at both meetings.

Registration for the Adult Book Club is now open!  Registered participants will be reading Pygmalion, and watching the movie, My Fair Lady.  The movie will take place on January 29 (6:00 – 9:15 p.m.), and the discussion will be held on February 5 (6:30 – 7:30 p.m.).  Registered patrons may check out the book from the library (a physical copy or ebook format are both available), or secure a copy of their own.  Discussion questions will be provided, and refreshments will be served at both meetings.

“Why the Evergreen Trees Keep Their Leaves in Winter” is currently running on our Dial A Story Line at 862-4441.  This is an endearing fictional story about a little bird who was harbored all winter by the kindly conifers.
