Discuss a short story, get help with your resume, watch an acclaimed movie (or two) with a friend, learn about Beethoven, and for kids: play with legos or video games, decorate a cookie; and for the whole family: sing along at a musical performance.

Highlight This Week

  • Get your summer chills on with one of the year’s best and most scary movies, “A Quiet Place.” Starring Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, they are a family who have to live completely silent lives. If they make a sound, they will be hunted by the unknown looking for them. We’re showing it twice on Friday, July 20 at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m.
