movies at the library

5:30 pm, Tuesday November 7

Come to the library to see movies on the first Tuesday of the month.  Bring your own snacks and non-alcoholic beverages.  This month we’ll screen Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them (In 1926 Newt Scamander just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident, were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt's fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.)  The movie runs 133 minutes.   Brought to you through the generosity of the Friends of Hackley Library.

hawks and owls

6:00 pm, Monday, November 13

Hawks and Owls String Band has been delighting audiences around West Michigan since 1997.  Bruce Ling leader of Hawks and Owls and one of Michigan's finest musical treasures, is a River-side mystic, eloquent storyteller and passionate caretaker of America's collection of traditional music.  With stage performances that combine the expressive style of Garrison Keillor or Will Rogers, he paints musical portraits celebrating the colorful history of rural America with a broad repertoire of both original and time-savored traditional folk songs. As a collector of tunes, and songs, Bruce understands the importance of keeping the history of this timeless musical genre alive and well. He shares his keen knowledge with caring and passion, and his inspiration has propelled a legion of young musicians to continue playing these songs...a true testament to Ling's talents as a teacher and mentor.

Brought to you through the generosity of the Friends of Hackley Library.
