On Thursday evening at 6 PM we’ll begin our weekly program by reading the book, “Stardust” by Jeanne Willis & illustrated by Briony May Smith. Then move on to paint a flag sky, just in time to display for Friday’s Flag Day. Then you are welcome to stay and enjoy the movie Capture the Flag. It is rated PG and lasts 97 minutes. You may bring your own comfy camp chair, beverage, and snacks. The library will provide popcorn.
