Wednesday, September 19, 7:00 (111 min., PG13)

Recently separated and seeking a new environment to heal, Sandra, a middle class and superficial woman close to retirement finds refuge in London with her free spirited sister, Bif. With Bif’s encouragement and the cheerful optimism displayed by Bif’s friends, Sandra realizes that retirement and separation is not the end of a life. Instead, it is an invitation to a brand new beginning where new opportunities and new love can be found.

Fall Book Club – Need to Know by Karen Cleveland

51D-zLCy4OL._AA218_

Thursday, September 27, 7:00

In pursuit of a Russian sleeper cell on American soil, CIA analyst Vivian Miller uncovers a dangerous secret that will threaten her job, her family—and her life. On track for a much-needed promotion, she’s developed a system for identifying Russian agents, seemingly normal people living in plain sight.

After accessing the computer of a potential Russian operative, Vivian stumbles on a secret dossier of deep-cover agents within America’s borders. A few clicks later, everything that matters to her—her job, her husband, even her four children—is threatened.‎

Register beginning on Tuesday, September 4, and pick up your book to get started reading!  Enjoy a great discussion and prizes too!  We’ll see you there!

We Do Outreach Services!

Love Books

JMCPL strives to provide library services for every member of our community and to reach out to those who have difficulty visiting the library in person.  Our Outreach Service provides pickup and delivery of library items from the library to your doorstep.  If you have a physical or age-related disability or illness resulting in limited mobility, you qualify for our free Outreach Service.

Once registered for the service, library staff will contact you in order to discuss what kinds of topics and formats you prefer.  Our staff will select books and other material relating to your personal reading profile.

JMCPL delivers fiction and non-fiction books, movies, magazines, music and books on CD.  The lending period for most Outreach Service materials is six weeks.

Library items are delivered once a month, and you can either apply to have your books delivered by a volunteer (depending on the number of volunteers some locations are unavailable for delivery), or you can have a family member, friend, or neighbor pick up and drop off your items for you.

If you are interested in our Outreach Service, please contact the library at 306-763-8496 and register.
