Wednesdays, December 4, 11, and 18
Take advantage of our December Kid Time offerings to do a bit of holiday shopping, or just to rest with a cup of coffee at the library for an hour or so. We’ll be showing the following movies for children in grades three through five, followed by an activity such as Lego building, craft projects, or board games. Note that there will NOT be a movie on December 25 because we’re closed for Christmas. Pal-Mac intermediate students will need to have a parent send a letter of permission to be released to the library directly from school.

Because of Winn-Dixie
- Opal is having a hard time adjusting to life in her new home in a trailer park. When she goes to the Winn-Dixie supermarket to buy food for herself and her father, she stumbles on a high-spirited mutt causing mischief in the store. She takes him home, names him after the supermarket, and they soon get into a variety of adventures—all of which teach young Opal a lesson. One hour, 46 minutes, rated PG.
Wednesday, December 11

The Muppet Christmas Carol
- As only they can, the Muppets bring their special brand of humor and heart to a retelling of the classic Charles Dickens tale, The Christmas Carol. Ebenezer Scrooge, a miser and generally miserable old man, (played by Michael Caine), is held accountable for his dastardly actions by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future.
