April 1 is movie night
Friday, April 1 is movie night! We will be showing The Lego Movie at 6:00 pm. Popcorn and juice will be available and it's fine to bring your own snacks. "The first-ever full-length theatrical LEGO movie follows Emmet (Chris Pratt), an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared."
April 6 is brew time
Wednesday, April 6 brewmeister Phil Enright will demonstrate techniques for brewing delicious beer at home. Phil will have samples of different beers, bring an appetizer to share. The class begins at 6:00 pm. The class is limited to 8 people, sign up at the library.
Adult Coloring
We will have one more session of adult coloring on Tuesday, April 12 at 5:30. Coloring sheets, pencils, and gel pens will be available. Bring a beverage and snack if you wish.
Books, Burgers, and Brews
Our Books, Burgers, and Brews book club has been a huge success. Last month we discussed Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed at Papa Brunee's. Not everyone appreciated this book, but others were quite moved. This always makes for an excellent discussion. This month we read The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien. Our selection next month is The Word Exchange by Alena Graedon. Books will be available at the library for check out.
New Books and Movies
We have some terrific new books and movies out on the shelves. In Non-Fiction we now have When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanthi, Love, Loss, and What We Ate by Padma Lakshmi, On My Own by Diane Rehm, The Art of Memoir by Mary Karr, and A Mother's Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy by Sue Klebold. Fiction lovers have many new choices including The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende, All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders, The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald, Off the Grid by C.J. Box, For a Little While by Rick Bass and Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben.

New movies include Bridge of Spies, A Walk in the Woods, Woman in Gold, and Kingsman The Secret Service. The younger set will enjoy The Good Dinosaur, Inside Out, Minions, and The Peanuts Movie.
