Movie Night: The Hundred-Foot Journey

February 27th, 2015 · Comments Off

mar 15- 61

Join us on Tuesday, March 17th at 6:00 PM for a FREE showing of ‘The Hundred-Foot Journey’.  When the chilly chef proprietress of a Michelin-starred French restaurant in southern France gets wind of a culinary immigrant opening an Indian restaurant just 100 feet from her own, her icy protests escalate to all-out war between the two establishments. It’s a tasty celebration of triumph over exile as two worlds collide.  As always, Movie Night is FREE and popcorn and soda are provided!

The Irish immigrants brought the celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day to the United States in the early 1800’s.  At the library we’re going to have a special Saint Patrick’s Day celebration, so anyone who stops by to pay a fine or return library materials can try the “Luck of the Irish” by drawing a four leaf-clover from a basket and they will receive a 25-100% reduction on current overdue fines.  So visit us on Tuesday the 17th and see if the “Luck of the Irish” is with you!
