Monday Movie Night --'Incredibles 2' on the big screen on Monday, November 25, 2018 at 6:00 p.m.

Join us on Monday, November 25 at 6:00 p.m. to see everyone’s favorite family of superheroes in their next adventure in Incredibles 2. This time Helen is in the spotlight, leaving Bob at home with Violet and Dash to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.

Free and open to the public. Seating will begin at 5:45 p.m. This film is Rated PG and runs for 2 hours and 5 minutes. Participants are welcome to bring their own dinner or snacks to the movie. No advance registration required.

Lunch & Learn Documentary Film Series --begins with 'Jiro Dreams of Sushi', Tuesday, November 20, 2018 at 1:00 p.m.

Bring your own lunch to the library and join us for a new “Lunch & Learn” series—a documentary film screening once per month. Coffee & tea will be served. Our first screening will be on Tuesday, November 20 at 1:00 p.m.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi is the story of 85 year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world's greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious 3 star Michelin review, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro's sushi bar. At the heart of this story is Jiro's relationship with his eldest son Yoshikazu, the worthy heir to Jiro's legacy, who is unable to live up to his full potential in his father's shadow.

Free and open to the public. This film is Rated PG and runs for 1 hour and 23 minutes. Doors open at 12:45 p.m. for seating. Movie begins promptly at 1:00 p.m. Contact the library at 815-943-4671 for more information or if you have any questions.
