touchofmink We had to do a last minute switcheroo on our movie selection last week, when it was discovered that the Great Race was almost 3 hours length! This week’s selection is right on time though, and may have even more star power! “That Touch of Mink” features Hollywood legends, Cary Grant and Doris Day, along with Audrey Meadows of Honeymooner’s fame, as well as John Astin, perhaps best known for playing Gomez on the Addams Family television series. A very funny and enjoyable film, perfect antidote for a chilly Monday evening! Showtime is always 6pm and admission will cost you nothing. Seating is limited though, so don’t delay! We finish up the series next week with “It Happened on 5th Avenue“.

family-tree On Sunday June 8th from 12:30-3:30pm, the library welcomes members of the Troy Irish Genealogy Society. They will be on hand to assist people in looking up information about their ancestors. Half hour sessions are available for registration in advance, as well as walk-ins. You do NOT need to be of Irish descent. Bring any information you already have along with your questions. Especially useful will be the names of parents and grandparents, their dates of birth and where they were born or lived. The volunteer researchers will do their best to find answers, which can sometimes be surprising! Please call the library at 237-0891 for additional information or to register.

despermouseWe are debuting a new family program series this month, called Family Book Club. The idea is for families to get together and read a popular children’s book, then join us at the library to discuss the book AND then watch a movie based on the book! Our first title is “The Tale of Despereaux” by Kate DiCamillo. We will be gathering here on Saturday April 19th beginning at noon to watch the movie and discuss the book. Oh and eat some soup! We are requesting that families interested in participating register in advance for the program, which is open to children of all ages and their families. Contact Liz at 237-0891 or lliddington@sals.edu for complete information.
