Summer Kick-off: Book Swap & Film Showing

Come for the book swap, stay for the film!

A stack of booksThe Cherry Blossoms have fallen and summer is on its way.  Come meet the Fiction Lover's Book Club on Tuesday, May 28 as we launch our summer reading season with a book swap and film showing.  Recycle your familiar reads by trading with another book lover, or choose from the free books or audiobooks on the Fiction Lover's Book Club's swap cart.  Then join the group as we watch a film favorite celebrating librarians. Either way, walk in with your favorite, enjoy an adventure, and go home with something new.

About the film:Noah Wyle as The Librarian
To be a librarian, you must master the Dewey Decimal System, ace Internet research and, if you're new librarian Flynn Carsen, save the world!
The Librarian: Quest for the Spear is the first in a trilogy of comedy-adventure films featuring the exploits of Carsen as he preserves and protects the world's mythological treasures.  Originally produced for TNT cable network in 2004, it stars Noah Wyle, Olympia Dukakis, Kyle MacLachlan, Jane Curtin, and Bob Newhart.  Directed by Peter Winther, this extended version runs 106 minutes and is not rated (NR).

The book swap starts at 5:30 p.m., and the film at 6 p.m., in Room A-9 on the Lower Level.
