Film Festivals at the Library

The Library runs various film festivals throughout the year, appealing to every taste and interest. All movies are shown free of charge in the meeting rooms, and everyone is welcome. As some films deal with adult thematic content, parents are urged to exercise judgment as necessary. The films series are sponsored by the Friends of The Library.
