Banned Books Week is the last week of September, but we don’t think one week is enough time to highlight such an important topic... So join as we celebrate our right to read all September! This month's movies are all based upon challenged books. We'll have a special banned books-themed Escape Room for Book Buzz. And don't forget about the fan-favorite black-out poetry!
Unless otherwise noted, programs are designed for patrons in grades 6-12. For more information, feel free to email, message, stop by, or call (325-655-7321, ext 1128) the Teen Republic!
As the Teen Republic is designed for teens, we may show PG-13 films. Since that designation is so broad it’s up to guardians and kiddos to decide if any given film is appropriate.
Movies are shown Wednesdays at 5pm and Saturdays at 1pm.
September 5 & 8: The Golden Compass (PG-13)
September 12 & 15: Captain Underpants (PG)
September 19 & 22: A Wrinkle in Time (PG)
September 26 & 29: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (PG)

Explore new Minecraft worlds. Delve into the deepest dungeons. Travel to the darkest parts of the Nether. Work together to build amazing constructions!
Participation does not require a Minecraft account! Given the frequency with which this club meets, seating is first come, first serve.
