Veterans Day (observed), Monday, November 12, 2012

The library will be open on Veterans' Day, Monday, November 12, 2012 from 9 am until 5 pm.

We will have a special craft in the Children's Room available all day. Bring your kids in to make a Thank You card for a Veteran. We will provide the cards as well as stickers, markers, etc. to decorate them and we will deliver the cards to Legion Post 35 for distribution.

Additionally, we are showing a classic movie: The Great Escape, (1963, Not Rated, 2 hrs. 50 mins.), starring Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Garner and James Coburn at 2 pm.  The Great Escape is based on the true story of a group of Allied prisoners of war who managed to escape from an allegedly impenetrable Nazi prison camp during World War II. An epic adventure film, The Great Escape runs nearly three hours, featuring a rousing Elmer Bernstein score and exciting action sequences -- including a notorious motorcycle chase between McQueen and the Nazis -- the likes of which had never been seen before in Hollywood productions. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Admission is FREE. Popcorn and water are provided courtesy of the Friends of the Lane Memorial Library.
