Read On WI - Pizza & Prizes!

Ripon Public Library proudly supports Read On Wisconsin! ROW is a literacy program which promotes high-quality books for children, from babies to teens, throughout the state. Following the school calendar, each month, September through May, features a book for five different age-levels.  The 2012-13 ROW choices have been on display at the Ripon Public Library and readers have been reading them!  

Now it’s time for those readers to reap extra reading rewards in the form of a pizza & prizes party, to be held on Thursday, May 30 from 4-6 p.m. at the Ripon Public Library. This special event is reserved for those who have read a substantial number of books on their age group’s reading list. Please call the library, 748-6160 or email decramer@riponlibrary.org, to preregister so enough pizza can be ordered for all.

DECEMBER 31 Count down the Noon New Year with The Incredibles (PG)

Is midnight too late to celebrate? Count down to the Noon New Year with your favorite family of superheros at the library! Popcorn refreshments provided.

9:45 A.M.      The Incredibles (PG) | 115 minutes

11:45 A.M.    Jack Jack Attack short film (PG) | 5 minutes

12:00 P.M.    The Incredibles 2 (PG) | 118 minutes

Everyone's favorite family of superheroes is back in "Incredibles 2"--but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of "normal" life. It's a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack's emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again--which is easier said than done, even when they're all Incredible. Description by Rotten Tomatoes. 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Every Monday at 2:00 P.M., enjoy a diverse selection of newly released films, free on the big screen at Ripon Public Library! For an updated film schedule, descriptions, and movie trailers, visit our website at www.riponlibrary.org/MondayMatinees.
