Our local magician will present a magic show for all ages, in the Community Room, Saturday, October 31st. Halloween candy and treats are included.
Following the magic show, will be our very first movie event (thanks to a generous donation of a movie license. )The movie is I Drink Your Blood, which was filmed in Sharon Springs in the 70's and became a cult classic Horror film, with appearances of local residents, and recognizable Sharon Springs locations. This is adult programming, with a movie rating of R. Anyone under 17 must have parental permission to attend. Permission forms are available at the library.
The programs start at 1:30, with the magic show and goodies, followed by the movie, ending at 5. Both programs are free and open to the public, with the age and permission requirements for the movie as noted.
