Take a break, have an evening out, relax and enjoy TFL’s Monthly Movie Night on Friday, March 29 at 6 pm. Admission is free & popcorn is provided!

This month we will show Paper Moon, a 1973 PG comedy-drama directed by Peter Bogdanovich starring father-daughter duo: Ryan and Tatum O’Neal. Set against the backdrop of the rum-running, Prohibition era mid-west Bible belt during the Great Depression, a con man finds himself saddled with a young girl who may or may not be his daughter and the two forge an unlikely partnership. Tom Lyford calls his selection “a film that audiences have found endearing for decades.”

 

Maine history buffs take note: Warden Jeffrey Merrill Sr. will give us a look behind prison walls on Tuesday, March 26 at 5:30 pm. Join us as Merrill shares a documentary about the Maine State Prison and discusses his book “Maine State Prison: 1824-2002.” He will answer questions and share stories from his research and his own experiences as the last warden of the Thomaston facility.

Join us for two new story times!

Start your Saturday with stories and songs at Good Morning Story Time. This 9:30 am program starts on March 16 and will repeat the 3rd Saturday of every month. It will feature reading, music, and finger plays, with coloring & puzzles at the end.

Children are invited to bring blankets and teddy bears and wear their PJs to snuggle in for a cozy, quiet Bedtime Stories. This 6:00 pm program starts on March 19 and will repeat every other Tuesday evening.
