Family Movie Day: Saturday March 8th at NoonWorlds collide when a powerful ancient enemy threatens to plunge the cosmos into eternal darkness. Now, reunited with Jane Foster, and forced to forge an alliance with his treacherous brother Loki, Thor embarks on a perilous personal quest to save both Earth and Asgard from destruction.
Limited space. Choose free popcorn or candy before the movie begins. Waters will be available or you can bring your own (Lidded container or screw-on caps please). Family Movie Day is for Barrington residents or library card holders.
New library cards sporting the new logo and including a convenient key tag will be available starting February 14. Current patrons will have to surrender their old card numbers to obtain a new card, but those who wish to continue using their old cards can do so indefinitely. The library suggests those using online services for downloading wait to get new cards until they clear their current reserve lists as these will be deleted upon getting a new card number.
The Friends of the Library have also made available bumper stickers with the new logo and tag line, available at the library. All donations received for the bumper stickers will be deposited in the library’s Building Fund, and those donating will receive a heart to put their name on as well as a chocolate treat donated by Worldwide Chocolate of Barrington (while supplies last!).
