Great Books! Great Movies!

In coordination with the Adult Summer Reading Program, Alachua County Library is hosting a series of films that were based on a great book. The first film showing is June 8 in Meeting Room A on the 4th floor of the Library Headquarters building. The series will continue every Friday at 2:30 through August 17. You can reserve the book ahead of time by searching the library catalog or visit any of the library's 12 branches. After the movie, stick around.
