Teens/Kids: Winter Break @ RML

Spend some time @ Robey Memorial Library during Winter Break!

Besides our collections of reading materials for all ages, Robey Memorial Library will be offering some fun programs for students this Winter Break.

Stop in any time between 1:30 and 3:30 pm on December 27th and 29th to make something fun to take home during our Make & Take sessions.

On Monday, January 2nd at 1:30 pm we will be showing the movie BFG:


Steven Spielberg directed this adaptation of Roald Dahl's beloved novel, which centers on the unlikely friendship between a lonely orphan named Sophie (Ruby Barnhill) and the titular "big friendly giant" (brought to life via a motion-capture performance from Mark Rylance). Together, the pair explore Giant Country and collect dreams; later, they try to warn the Queen of England (Penelope Wilton) about the threat posed by the other giants, who, unlike the vegetarian BFG, eat children for sustenance. The BFG made its world premiere at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, and is dedicated to the memory of screenwriter Melissa Mathison (who also wrote the script for Spielberg's E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial). Rebecca Hall, Bill Hader, Jemaine Clement, and Rafe Spall co-star. Author: Jack Rodgers
