Documentaries After Dark tomorrow night!

Drop by the library tomorrow for an evening of epic historical battles! We will explore the Crusades, military expeditions undertaken by Western European Christians between 1095 and 1270, usually at behest of papacy, to recover Jerusalem and other Palestinian places of pilgrimage from Muslim control. The name (from Lat., “cross,” the emblem of the Crusaders) was also applied, especially in the 13th century, to wars against pagan peoples, Christian heretics, and political foes of the papacy. The film begins promptly at 6:30pm and lasts approximately 70 minutes.

Light refreshments served! For more information, contact Holley at 205/445-1117 or!

Christmas Movies This Sunday!

This Sunday afternoon from 1-5 we'll have a Christmas movie double-feature! What will we watch, you ask? Let me describe them and see if you can figure out what they are:
  • In our first movie a mean old miser refuses to embrace the spirit of the Christmas season, it takes three ghosts (and his former business partner) to help him see the light. This film features lots of holiday merriment, great costumes and a heartwarming message!

  • Our second movie is a classic! Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire open an inn located in New England for the holidays. This movie introduced the song "White Christmas" to the American public.

Don't miss these great Holiday classics! Drop by the library this Sunday to watch all, or even part, of these fun movies. In addition to free, family-friendly films, we will have hot chocolate, cookies and more!

See you Sunday!
