Come on by for Monday Night Movies this Monday, March 16 at 6:25 PM (please note the earlier start time for this week!).  This week’s selection is a newly released World War II movie portraying the Attack on Pearl Harbor and the Battle of Midway, along with other battles in the Pacific Theatre.  It stars Woody Harrelson, Luke Evans, Dennis Quaid, Mandy Moore, Aaron Eckhart, Patrick Wilson, and Ed Skrein, to name a few of this large ensemble cast.  It is rated PG-13. Please keep in mind that the doors will open at 6:10 PM to allow us to finish setting up for the movie.  If you are unable to make it to the Monday night showing, we will be showing the movie again on Wednesday, March 18 at 12:30 PM.   

On Saturday, March 21, instead of the regularly scheduled Babytime and Toddler Time, the South Plainfield Public Library will be participating in the New Jersey Makers Day.  From 10 AM to 12 PM, drop by to experience some awesome STEAM themes in action.  Different stations will be set up where children can learn about Arduino, network cables, snap circuits, virtual reality, plants, art, and more!  There will also be special guests the Lego Dragons Robotics Team.  No registration is required.

Also on Saturday, March 21, come by anytime between 3:00 to 4:30 PM for a Color-a-thon to color a picture that will be sent off to a non-profit organization, ColorASmile.org. They will deliver your artwork to senior citizens, our troops overseas, or anyone in need of a smile. This is the senior project of a student at South Plainfield High School.  It is for all ages.
