Mondays at the Movies for Teens – August 17, 7:30 PM

Monty-Python-and-the-Holy-Grail-1975The most requested movie of the summer and the one that got the most votes on the survey is a British cult classic containing such memorable lines as “It’s only a flesh wound!” and We are the knights who say ‘Ni!'”.

Our final British Invasion film series for teens ends with perhaps the best Monty Python film of all time.

If you have never seen it, you are in for a treat.

This film is rated PG and has a run time of 89 minutes.

Popcorn and juice provided.

Location: Morrell Meeting Room

Oh, but you can’t expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.

star-wars-day-leiaThe Mandalorian Mercs, those bad bounty hunters who roam the galaxy searching for Han Solo and his pals, will take over the library looking for young Jedis.

If you are a fan of Star Wars, don’t miss this invasion!

This all-ages event includes photo opportunities, make-it take-it activities and other fun things to do while you evade capture from the members of the Wampa Clan of Maine.

And there’s more!

During Star Wars Day, come to the Morrell Meeting Room to pick up a make and take craft, try your hand at drawing R2-D2, and take part in other activities.
