Caz Library to host ‘Book to Film Club’

— A “Book to Film Club” is one of the enriching new programs planned for the upcoming year for the Cazenovia Public Library at 100 Albany St.

Beginning at 3:15 p.m. Friday, Jan. 13, and continuing on the second Friday of each month, young adults are invited to participate in the discussion of a selected book, view its film adaptation and then discuss the two.

Six stories have been chosen that have graced both the bookshelf and the silver screen.

The theme of the first selections is “fantasy in fiction and film,” which includes “Tuck Everlasting,” “The Neverending Story,” “Stardust,” “The Gold Compass,” “Zathura,” and “The Spiderwick Chronicles.” All titles are available at the library for those interested to check out.

Young adults will not want to miss out on this opportunity to discuss the issues addressed in these books — all of which are relevant in today’s society — as well as looking at the book and film as counterparts for insight into the film and entertainment industry.

The “Book to Film Club” is free to join and open to the public. For additional information, call 655-9322 or visit cazenoviapubliclibrary.org.

Upcoming screenings at CPL

While they aren’t fodder for the newly formed “Book to Film” club, the Cazenovia Public Library will be screening two children’s movies in the coming weeks.

— At 2:15 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 28, children are invited to view “Kung Fu Panda 2.” The movie is rated PG and runs for 91 minutes.

— At 2 and 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 30, the library will show “Dolphin Tale” for all who visit the Community Room screening. The movie is rated PG and runs for 113 minutes.

Admission and popcorn are always free.

In 2012, the Cazenovia Public Library will screen “Contagion” Jan. 12, and “Moneyball” Jan. 19.
