It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superman! Well, not exactly…
To be fair, Krypto the Super-Dog and “the last son of Krypton” have the exact same superpowers. Which is why you’ll see the caped, crime-fighting canine flying side-by-side with his best friend, the Man of Steel, high in the skies of Metropolis! And now, he’s the star of the new summer blockbuster DC League of Super-Pets – in theatres July 29. If you like Super-Pets, then we have good news for you (and several book recommendations)!
Join Us For The 9th Annual Friends of Brentwood Public Library's Back To School Bash!
On Saturday, August 6th, join us at Brentwood Public Library as we celebrate and prepare our youth for the 2022- 2023 school year with backpacks for K-12th graders (while supplies last), school supplies, arts and crafts, food, games, a game truck and more! The opening ceremony begins at 10:15 and the festivities begin at 10:30.
August brings authors from near and far for interviews and workshops, gardening tips for growth, a brand-new book club, and more! Below you will find just a snapshot of some of our programs for adults. To see all of the programs happening at Jacksonville Public Library, take a look at our events calendar.
Earlier this year, a simple call went out to local students: submit an original poem, not to exceed one page in length, celebrating Jacksonville’s Bicentennial. Students were given a simple prompt: "Looking back, moving forward. Take a look back at our City's history while imagining our bold future!” Last month, winners were notified and given the opportunity to read their award-winning poems on camera.
Whether you’re a Francophile, a fashionista or just a fan of heartwarmingly good stories: Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris has a little something for everyone. This newest movie is the third adaptation of the beloved 1958 novel by Paul Gallico. It follows Ada Harris, a humble but determined housekeeper, whose one wish is to wear a couture Christian Dior dress of her very own. It's this seemingly impossible dream which takes her on an extraordinary, life-changing adventure.
