Wednesdays, November 6, 13, and 20
November brings colder weather and a desire to hunker down somewhere warm and do something fun—like watch a movie!
Here are the films we’ll be showing for children in grades three through five in November, followed by an activity such as Lego building, craft projects, and board games. Note that there will NOT be a movie on November 27 because of the Thanksgiving holiday. Pal-Mac intermediate students will need to have a parent send a letter of permission to be released to the library directly from school.
