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 Summer Reading Program may be finished, but there are still plenty of events happening at the library this Summer!

Part of our Dinner and a Movie series. Feel free to bring you own snacks and drinks.

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.
