Sunday, Jan. 12th at 1:30 p.m. will feature Renee Zellweger as Judy Garland in Judy. Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.” This movie is free and open to the public. Thank you to RJAC for funding the public movie license for the Library. Refreshments will be served.
Join us on Monday, Dec. 16th as we honor staff retirees Mary O’Brien and Bill Allaire. Mary and Bill will be retiring at the end of 2019. They have served the library community for many years. Mary started in July of 2006 and Bill began in 2002. We will miss their joyful spirits and dedication to the library. Blessings on their new retirement. Cake and coffee will be served by the Friends of the Library beginning at 10 a.m.
Everyone is welcome.
