APRIL 8th Friday After School Treat - Labyrinth on the BIG SCREEN!

Every other Friday, at 3:30 p.m., school aged children are invited to enjoy a special library event. Caregivers do not need to remain in attendance, but must provide an emergency contact number if leaving the building.

April 8 – In honor of the late, great David Bowie, enjoy a BIG SCREEN showing of this George Lucas produced, and Jim Henson directed, gothic fantasy starring Bowie! This PG-rated, 101 minute film also stars Jennifer Connelly who is challenged to find her way through a labyrinth in order to save her brother. As she makes her way through the maze, she faces a number of horrific challenges (like the Bog of Eternal Stench) before she finds her way to the gravity-defying castle, where her brother is being held by evil goblins.

Popcorn will be served.
