TD Summer Reading Club Matinee – Dumbo

Thursday, July 25, 2:00 (112 min., PG)

A live-action remake of the classic Disney cartoon about the little circus elephant who learns that nothing is impossible if you believe in yourself. It’s even possible for an elephant to fly! But when Dumbo displays his abilities, an evil businessman buys his circus with plans to exploit him. It’s up to Dumbo’s human friends to figure out a way to save both the little flying elephant and the circus.

Saturday Movie – First Man

                                                 

Saturday, July 20, 2:00 (141 min., PG13)

A first-person account through the eyes of Neil Armstrong recounts the history-changing years before the Apollo 11 mission. Neil’s character takes us back to 1961, and recalls what it was like to be the first man on the moon. Retelling the most dangerous mission America had ever done, Neil brings to life his personal sacrifices, and the sacrifices of the country. Neil leads us from the very beginning, all the way up to July 20, 1969, when he took one giant leap for mankind.

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.
