Movie Series at the Jackson Memorial Library

Why do societies that seem stable fall apart?  How is it that friends can become enemies?  The Jackson Memorial Library in St. George is hosting a movies series to look at just those questions.  The movies will be shown at 5:30 in the library on three Thursdays.  At 7:30, people who have seen the movies elsewhere are welcome to come for the discussion. Each movie is available on DVD at the Library.

Gaming at the Library

On March 17th, from 5:30 to 7:00 we will be hosting our first ever family game night. We will have cards, board games, and a Nintendo Wii. You are welcome to bring your own favorite board game to share with others or a 4 player Wii game.  The library encourages all family members to come and partake in the festivities. According to a recent article in the Huffington Post:

“Games also, increasingly, are a particularly effective way to bond with our friends and family -- strengthening our real-life and online social networks in ways that no other kind of social interaction can.”

We will also be hosting a Teen specific game night, for 7thgrade and up! Bring in your favorite games to share on the Wii.

Youth Services Update

It has been a busy and fun month at the Jackson Memorial Library. The girls’ book club had a blast doing some collages, drawing, and playing Pictionary (I believe there may have been some book discussion involved in there somewhere, too).  Our monthly storytime, where we come together to read picture books and do a craft, is still a blast!
