School Early Release Day Program Wednesday January 14

Schthe princess brideool has Early Release on  Wednesday January 14th. We will be showing a movie in the Community Room. The Wednesday movie we usually show for adults has been selected for the early release so that our youth can attend. This movie is rated PG and runs for 98 minutes and begins at 1:00PM.

Based on William Goldman’s novel, this film is staged as a book read by a grandfather (Peter Falk) to his ill grandson (Fred Savage). Falk’s character assures a romance-weary Savage that the book has much more to deliver than a simpering love story, including but not limited to fencing, fighting, torture, death, true love, giants, and pirates.

Parents, please remember, only children aged 8+ may be left in the library without supervision. Please be sure to check the content of this  film to be sure that the film is appropriate for your child. Please call the library if you have any questions.

Mah Jongg Group Meets Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:30pm

 American Style Mah Jongg

Join Barbara LaSala for two weekly afternoons of Mah Jongg.  Everyone from beginners to established players is invited to join this group! We meet in the Community Meeting Room downstairs at RPL .   Mah Jongg  as it is generally played today can  be traced back to the end of the last century.  The line of games that evolved to Mah Jongg is long and extensive. From around 800 AD card games were played which resembled the way Mah Jongg is played, in the fact that you have to collect Chows, Pungs and Kongs. The cards used in these games resembled the money used in those days.  It was not before the turn of this century until the West got a glimpse of Mah Jongg, when it was introduced in the international colony of Shanghai and from then onwards in the USA, Japan and finally Europe.  Attend to find out more about this Internationally popular game of strategy.
