Puss In Boots at the Library!

Friday the 16th is Free Family Movie Night! We will be showing “Puss & Boots”, the DreamWorks animated movie starring Antonio Banderas. Everyone knows Puss in Boots from the "Shrek" films, but few know that years before meeting the green ogre, the swashbuckling feline had his own adventure. Learn the origin of this furry lover, fighter, and outlaw as he teams up with Kitty Softpaws and Humpty Dumpty to steal magic beans from the dastardly Jack and Jill in a castle guarded by giants so Puss can clear his name. This film is rated PG (for adventure action and mildly rude humor) and runs 90 minutes. We will start the movie just after 7pm.

A sharp-eyed patron noticed our next gardening program was scheduled for the Saturday of Easter weekend. We realized this was going to cause many of our regular attendees to be unable to join us so we have moved the April 7th gardening session to Saturday, March 31st. We hope that does not cause any inconvenience. The gardening sessions have been going really well and the March 31st session will focus on the pros and cons of direct seeding and transplanting, protecting your seedlings, crops that are (usually) easy to grow, companion planting and the importance of mulching. Help fend off cabin fever and join us!
