We are continuing our Dinner & a Movie Program, but at the new start time of 5:30 P.M. pack a picnic dinner or grab something delicious from your favorite takeout restaurant and head to the Library for a family movie night! Movies are typically rated G or PG unless stated otherwise. Bring your family, your friends and your own dinner or snacks!
This weeks movie is on September 3rd and is ‘BLENDED’ – RATED PG-13.
Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore reunite with Wedding Singer director Frank Coraci for this Warner Bros. romantic comedy about a terrible blind date that segues into a nightmare family vacation. Lauren (Barrymore) and Jim (Sandler) are two single parents just looking for love. In the wake of a blind date that turns disastrous, both agree that they’re better off single. Just when Lauren and Jim thought they would never see each other again, however, their two families end up at the same African safari resort for spring break. Could it possibly be that their relationship is so crazy it just might work?
September is National Library Card Sign-up Month! Library Card Sign-up Month is a celebration held each September during which librarians across the country remind parents and caregivers that a library card is the most important school supply of all.
A library card is a key resource in achieving academic success, and the library is the perfect place to spend quality family time together.
If you or your child do not yet have a library card, you can either sign up for one online at the Onondaga County Public Library website, or come into Solvay Public Library anytime. But, remember to bring: your official photo identification (such as your driver’s license) with current address and signature or two forms of identification, one with current address and one with a photo of you. If you do not have the required identification, ask a librarian or staff member and they will tell you how to get a card.

The entire Muppets gang goes on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid, Dublin and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine-the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit the Frog-and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two.

Dinner and a Movie: Wednesday, July 23rd at 6:00 p.m. We provide the movie, you bring all the snacks and beverages you desire. This week we will be showing Heaven Is For Real. A young boy suffers a near-death experience in which he claims to have visited heaven in this earnest inspirational drama based on the best-selling book of the same name. When their young son Colton (Connor Corum) enters the hospital with a life-threatening illness, devastated parents Todd (Academy Award nominee Greg Kinnear) and Sonja Burpo (Kelly Reilly) are uncertain whether he will make it out of the operating room alive. But in what Colton’s doctors credit as ‘a miracle,’ he survives — and with an incredible story that seems to confirm the existence of heaven. Later, despite Colton’s accurate and intimate revelations about people he has never encountered — including his sister who died in utero and his late grandfather — skeptics hastily dismiss any possibility that the young boy’s fantastical claims could be true. Meanwhile, his astonished parents seek meaning in the alleged miracle that has turned their once-peaceful lives completely upside down.
