Senior Classic Movie Morning Returns

On Friday, September 14, 2012 Senior Classic Movie Morning returns to the Barbara Bush Branch Library.  We will show a classic Alfred Hitchcock spy thriller: "Richard Hannay is a Canadian visitor to London.  At the end of his show in a music hall, he meets Annabella Smith who is running away from secret agents.  He accepts to hide her in his flat, but in the night she is murdered.  Fearing he could be accused in the girl's murder, Hannay goes on the run to break the spy ring."

Senior Classic Movie Morning will be the 2nd Friday of each month.  The movie will start shortly after 10:00 am and will usually end around Noon.  Come with a friend or meet a new friend.

We Have a Winner at the Barbara Bush Library!

Lynn Jones, shown here with her daughter Zoe, is the winner of a $30 Amazon gift card as a prize drawing from those who completed the Adult Summer Reading Program. Her name was drawn at random from among all participants at Barbara Bush Library who read at least 5 books or 600 minutes during the summer. When Lynn was told she won, she was surprised yet extremely excited. Lynn is an avid reader and has passed on her love of books to her kids. The summer  reading program gives her a chance to share her likes with others as well as see what others are reading.
