March 1st, "The Help"  Library Book and a Movie Night  
The library's book and a movie night series begins on March 1st at 6:30 PM  with "The Help". Based on the sensational best-selling novel by Kathryn Stockett, "The Help "traces an unlikely rebellion in a Mississippi town during the 1960's Civil Rights movement among black maids serving white families and the white woman who wants to tell their stories. 
"The Help stars Emma Stone as Skeeter, Viola Davis as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny-three very different, extraordinary women  who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that defies societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their unlikely alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage, faith and humor to challenge the discrimination that surrounds them and bring everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times."
This event is open to the public and free of charge. There's no requirement to read the book beforehand, but if you would like to, copies will be available for checkout at the library.
E-books and Readers are here!
