The new film series Maxwell Matinees features a full-length movie on the second Tuesday of the month at 2:30 p.m. in the community room. Selections will range from new releases to beloved classics. We hope that the audience will come forward with suggestions for films they would like us to offer. The next show, on May 12, will be "Brideshead Revisited" starring Emma Thompson and Michael Gambon. It is rated PG-13 and runs 100 minutes. We hope to see a lot of familiar patrons as well as new faces.
Why not make an afternoon of it? Meet with some friends for coffee or lunch, and then swing on by the library for a couple of hours of entertainment. All the movies are free and open to the public. Seating is limited, so please call the library to reserve your place. Pencil us in your calendars for 2:30 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month, and we'll see you at the movies!
Children's Librarian Kelly Chambala has two great programs for children and families. Kids' Time is an after school story and craft program for children in kindergarten through second grade. It is held at Maxwell Library from 4:15 to 5 p.m. every Wednesday. Stop in for great stories, crafts, and fun! Camillus Page Turners is a new book club for 8- to 12-year-olds and a parent or other adult. The group meets from 7 to 7:45 p.m. the first Wednesday of the month. The next meeting is Wednesday May 6, when we'll discuss "Mickey and Me" by Dan Gutman. A new title for discussion on June 3 will be handed out that evening; please bring your library cards. Light refreshments are provided.
Please join us for Maxwell Movie Nights, offered at 6p.m. the second and fourth Mondays of the month. Our next presentations, titles to be announced, will be on April 27 and May 11. Films are always family-oriented, and we provide the popcorn! Movie Nights are free and open to the public. Seating is limited, so come early.
