Library Noir Movie Afternoon. Venture into the world of tough guys, dangerous dames and hard-boiled detectives for our new monthly movie afternoon featuring the film noir genre. Our first movie, airing on Thursday, Jan. 16, at 2 p.m. at the main branch of the library, will be “The Maltese Falcon” (1941) starring Humphrey Bogart as detective Sam Spade. He’s hired by a stunning damsel in distress but where she goes, death follows. And in the center of it all is the statuette of a bird: The Maltese Falcon. Enjoy the movie on our big 60-inch TV screen and munch on popcorn while you’re riveted to this film noir classic.
Mother/Daughter Book Club. Join the book group for children ages 7-12 and their moms. The book for January is “The Sisters 8: Annie’s Adventures” by Lauren Baratz-Logsted. Registration required. Place a hold to get your book. The club will meet at the Lyons Branch Library on Thursday, Jan. 30, at 6 p.m. to discuss the book and do fun activities.
