Here It Comes!



Due to a potential forecast of inclement weather, Cinema at the Square was rescheduled.  The new date is Friday, Sept. 2, 2011.

All other details, such as time and place, remain the same.

Well, by now Summer Reading is but a fond memory.  We hope that everyone who participated enjoyed all of the “travels” that took place this summer.  To those who participated in daily lunches, joined us for tea parties and made fruit tacos, attended Friday movies, and traveled with us on our first field trip to Derby City Comic-Con (to name but a very few of the programs that took place this summer), we loved being able to spend the summer with you!!  But before we mention that we can’t wait for Summer Reading 2012, we’d like to remind you that awesome library programs take place ALL YEAR LONG!  Fall calendars will be posted soon to our web site and blog!

Today, in addition to wishing the students of  Marion County a great school year, the Marion County Public Library would like to announce that on Friday, September 2, 2011 at Centre Square’s Johnston Field, the Marion County Public Library will be hosting the 3rd annual Cinema at the Square.  This year’s movie will be the Disney hit ‘Tangled”.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m., with the movie beginning at dark.  If you have never been to a Cinema at the Square event, we HIGHLY encourage you to stop by!  What better way to spend a summer evening but to enjoy a free evening movie on a blanket under a beautiful night sky?  Lawn chairs, blankets, and picnics are welcome, and even encouraged.  On-site vendors will be available for those who wish to purchase snacks and other food items.  (No pets or alcoholic beverages please.)  Please join us and experience for yourself this fun-for-all ages event!
