Off the Shelf: Maxwell Memorial Library events

The new film series Maxwell Matinees features a full-length movie at 2:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month in the Community Room. Selections will range from new releases to beloved classics. All movies are free and open to the public. Seating is limited, so please call the library to reserve your place.

The next show, on June 9, will be "New in Town" starring Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick, Jr. This 2009 romantic comedy is rated PG and runs 97 minutes.

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 through June. Stop in for great stories, crafts, and fun!

Camillus Page Turners is a book club for 8- to 12-year-olds and a parent or other adult and meets 7 to 7:45 p.m. the first Wednesday of the month. The next meeting is Wednesday June 3 when participants will discuss "Inkheart" by Cornelia Funke. Kids' Time and Page Turners will then take a break until September to make room for all our Wild Wednesdays, which will begin at 6 p.m. July 1 with "Zoo to You."

Maxwell Movie Nights is offered at 6 p.m. the second Monday of the month. The next show, "Barbie Presents Thumbelina," will be June 8. This feature is not rated, and runs 75 minutes. Films are always family-oriented, and Maxwell provides the popcorn! Movie Nights are free and open to the public. Seating is limited, so come early.

Sally's preschool story time for children ages 3 to 5 is held on Mondays and Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. "Stories with Sally" for the under-3 crowd is now also held twice a week, on Tuesdays at 11:30 a.m. and Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. No registration is required for any of our story times, but a parent or guardian must remain with children and participate with them during Stories with Sally.
