MOVIE NIGHT IN THE COURTYARD: The Atkinson Recreation and the Kimball Library are hosting a movie night in the library courtyard on Friday, August 14th. The feature film is The Princess Bride. Running Time 1 hr, 39 min. Popcorn & drinks will be provided starting at 7:30 PM. Movie will start at 8:00 PM or as soon as it is dark enough. Bring a blanket, lawn chair, or sit on the courtyard wall.
This beloved classic fairytale begins with a grandfather reading his favorite book 'The Princess Bride” to his hard-to-impress grandson. This book, he promises, has everything – 'Fencing. Fighting. Torture. Revenge. Giants. Monsters. Chases. Escapes. True love. Miracles.” – and all that he promised comes to life before the boy’s enchanted eyes as his grandfather reads him the adventures of Buttercup, the most beautiful woman in the world, and Westley, the man she loves.
*The Courtyard has been sprayed for mosquitoes. We will spray again right before the show.*
The movie will be shown inside the library if there is a chance of rain or if it is too windy.
MORNING BOOK DISCUSSION: We welcome new faces even if you didn't read the book! Come to listen, or join in the conversation! Coffee and goodies are available and it's a great way to meet new friends. The book selection for August 26th at 10:15am is 'The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd.' This exquisitely written novel is a triumph of storytelling that looks with unswerving eyes at a devastating wound in American history, through women whose struggles for liberation, empowerment, and expression will leave no reader unmoved. Ask for your copy today!
EVENING BOOK DISCUSSION PM: We meet on the 3rd Tuesday evening of each month to discuss the chosen title. Newcomers are always welcome to be part of the discussion or to drop in and just listen. On August 18th at 6:00pm we’ll be discussing ‘Euphoria’ by Lily King. "A small gem, disturbing and haunting." Ask for a copy of the book of the month at the front desk.
