Director Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity stars Sandra Bullock as Dr. Ryan Stone, a scientist on a space shuttle mission headed by astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney), a talkative, charismatic leader full of colorful stories that he shares with his crewmates as well as mission control. As the two are on a space walk, debris hits the area where they are working, and soon the pair finds themselves detached from their ship and stranded in space. While figuring out what steps they can take to save themselves, Stone grapples with a painful past that makes her consider giving up altogether.
Join us Tuesday, February 18 from 2:00-3:00 PM for the Library’s Annual Kids Book Swap and Ice Cream Social.

After, they can enjoy ice cream and stay for Ron Cain’s Magic & Mystery Show from 3:15-4:00 PM.
Solvay Public Library is taking children’s book donations from now until the event. A box for these donations can be found up the stairs of the main, front entrance.
Both events are free to the public and sponsored by the Friends of the Solvay Public Library.
HOW TO KEEP OUR BRAINS WORKING THEIR BEST AS WE AGE
Thursday, February 13
Solvay Library Community Room
At this month’s social Chris Britton, MVP Community Health Educator will present a program on one of the hottest health topics these days. Learn easy techniques to improve your memory, what foods can help and how to stimulate your brain to keep it sharp now and in the future.
Toddlers’ Tango class use movement, music and instruments to explore motions of our bodies with dance, enjoy learning songs from around the world, and learn basic child massage techniques.
This is made possible through a generation donation from Judith LaManna Rivette.
Since Dom and Brian’s Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete. Meanwhile, Hobbs has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty. The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.
This is a free showing and popcorn will be served. No sign-ups or reservations, all are welcomed.
Please join us on the second Thursday of each month in the library’s Community Room for coffee, refreshments and conversation. It’s an opportunity to meet new people and socialize with friends and neighbors.
This month’s social will feature Handwriting Analysis by Blanche Sabene.
For over 50 years Blanche has collected handwriting samples to determine personality types. She will share the kinds of details that analysts look for in determining personality traits, backing them up with graphic examples from her collection.
