Lots of early outs, lots of movies in March

There’s spring fever even before spring break. Early-outs abound and that means movies at the library. On Wednesday, March 7, the cars, too, will take over. And, watch out because the very next day, Thursday, March 8, it will be all about how to train your dragon– just in time for spring break.
Movies last from 1 until 3 p.m. All Solon students are welcome. Children under the age of 10 attending the movie need to be picked up by parents or caregivers at 3 p.m.

Spring break schedule

Normal library activities will be taking place during the school’s spring break week (March 12 until 16). Regular library hours, Monday through Thursday, noon until 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., and closed on Sunday will be in effect. Storytime and Babygarten will meet at normal times, but there will be no YourSpace teen meets during spring break week. For third graders, the books needed to complete reading activities for the March reading bingo sheets are on display in the children’s area.

And the Oscar winner is–

Spencer Thompson.
Spencer took the prize in the 2012 Oscar contest sponsored by the Friends of the Solon Library by correctly predicting 18 of the 24 categories. The $40 prize package included first check-out privileges for all Best Picture nominated films that arrive at the library after the Oscars (Feb. 26). Congratulations, Spencer.

Adult reading winner
The February winner in the adult reading program drawing is Denise Calef. Congratulations, Denise.
