Five Rivers Adult Book Club

Meets once a month on the 3rd Tuesday at 5 pm.

We choose a different book selection each month which comes from the West Virginia Library Commission. Each member picks up their copy and reads the book during the month and then we gather on the 3rd Tuesday of the month and discuss the book together. It's a great way to meet new people and also get introduced to new books that you may not choose to read on your own. Come join in, we would love to have you.

This program that has a new theme each year and is open for ages 3 through 5th grade.

Movie Night Monday @ the Library

March 23 @ 6:00 p.m. "The Least of These" 

As the social fabric of life in rural India disintegrates in the late 1990s, journalist Manav Banerjee (Sharman Joshi) moves with his pregnant wife to the State of Orissa in hope of a better life and the promise of a lucrative career. When speculation mounts that local Australian missionary Graham Staines (Stephen Baldwin) is illegally proselytizing leprosy patients, Manav agrees to investigate undercover for the newspaper. What he finds is a series of revelations that are difficult to fathom and even harder to explain, and Manav is forced to make a choice between his own ambition and the truth. In the end, his actions spark a tragic event that is felt around the world. Based on a true story and shot on location in India, "THE LEAST OF THESE" beautifully illustrates the power of love, hope and forgiveness to overcome hate.                                                                                                                                         Rated PG-13 Run Time 1 hour & 48 min. Snacks and Drinks   ---  All Welcome --- Free Community Event  Weather permitting. If you plan to attend the movie, check with the Library.
