May Movie Nights

Movie nights at the SPL continue! Have a craving for movie theater-style popcorn and some time to spare? Join us at the library to sit back, relax, and enjoy a good film and good snacks! 

Family Movie Night: Families and all ages are invited to watch Muppet Treasure Island at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, May 10. When young Jim Hawkins inherits a long-lost treasure map, he hires the great ship Hispaniola to seek his fortune. With the good Captain Smollett (Kermit the Frog) at the helm – and greedy Long John Silver at the heart of a dastardly plot – they set sail for adventure only to discover danger at every turn!

Adult Movie Night: Join us at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, May 24 to watch the musical Hairspray. It’s 1962, and change is in the air in Baltimore. Tracy Turnblad, big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion – to dance!
