Wednesday Movie – Permanent

61J3KS9vMQL

Wednesday, November 21, 7:00 (94 min., PG13)

In 1982, Jim, Jeanne and Aurelie Dickson move to a new town in the south. They each struggle to fit in. Jim tries to conquer his fears related to swimming and middle age. Jeanne tries to spice up her marriage. Aurelie doesn’t have such great aspirations. She’s a pre-teen obsessed with fitting in at her new school. When she sees that the southern girls all have Farrah Fawcett hair, she begs Jeanne to allow her to get a permanent. Instead of taking Aurelie to a professional salon, Jeanne tries to cut costs by taking her to a beauty school where one of the students turns Aurelie’s hair into a colossal joke by allowing the perm solution in too long. The “afro,” as the kids at school call it, leads Aurelie and her parents through a wide range of experiences that end in tears and laughter.

Fall Book Club – Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton

51vmDbXWAaL._SX330_BO1,204,203,200_

Thursday, November 29, 7:00

After the death of her beloved grandmother, a Cuban-American woman travels to Havana, where she discovers the roots of her identity–and unearths a family secret hidden since the revolution … Havana, 1958. The daughter of a sugar baron, nineteen-year-old Elisa Perez is part of Cuba’s high society, where she is largely sheltered from the country’s growing political unrest–until she embarks on a clandestine affair with a passionate revolutionary … Miami, 2017. Freelance writer Marisol Ferrera grew up hearing romantic stories of Cuba from her late grandmother Elisa, who was forced to flee with her family during the revolution. Elisa’s last wish was for Marisol to scatter her ashes in the country of her birth. Arriving in Havana, Marisol comes face-to-face with the contrast of Cuba’s tropical, timeless beauty and its perilous political climate. When more family history comes to light and Marisol finds herself attracted to a man with secrets of his own, she’ll need the lessons of her grandmother’s past to help her understand the true meaning of courage–and what it means to be Cuban.

We Do Outreach Services!

Love Books

JMCPL strives to provide library services for every member of our community and to reach out to those who have difficulty visiting the library in person.  Our Outreach Service provides pickup and delivery of library items from the library to your doorstep.  If you have a physical or age-related disability or illness resulting in limited mobility, you qualify for our free Outreach Service.

Once registered for the service, library staff will contact you in order to discuss what kinds of topics and formats you prefer.  Our staff will select books and other material relating to your personal reading profile.

JMCPL delivers fiction and non-fiction books, movies, magazines, music and books on CD.  The lending period for most Outreach Service materials is six weeks.

Library items are delivered once a month, and you can either apply to have your books delivered by a volunteer (depending on the number of volunteers some locations are unavailable for delivery), or you can have a family member, friend, or neighbor pick up and drop off your items for you.

If you are interested in our Outreach Service, please contact the library at 306-763-8496 and register.
