Be Dressed for Prom!

Are you looking for a new dress for prom? Are you tired of your old dance dresses cluttering up your closet? Give someone else a chance to wear them and come pick out a new dress of your own. The Prom Dress Exchange is on Sunday, April 30 at Malletts Creek branch from 2pm to 4pm. The library has collected lots of dresses so don’t worry about having to bring a dress to be able to take one away.

Celebrate the opening of the first movie theater

On April 23, 1896, the first movie that was shown in a theater was seen at the Koster and Bials Music Hall in New York City. Until this time, people only saw films individually by using a kinetoscope.

Movies have dramatically changed over the years. As evidence, explore our diverse video and dvd collection including the dvd set, Treasures from American Film Archives, a four dvd set of fifty films that represent the breadth of American film making in its first one hundred years. Winner of the 2000 Film Heritage Award from the National Society of Film Critics and hailed by one critic as "...a bottomless bottle of blue tequila..," the series includes silent films, avant-garde works, documentaries and some of the earliest American films.
