Movie Night: Annie

  • Movie Night: Annie
  • Main Library, Theater
  • Tuesday, April 28, 2015
  • 6:30 pm (doors open at 6 pm)
  • Free admission, no tickets required
  • Rated PG, 118 minutes

This month’s movie is Annie:  come see it on the big screen!  Annie is a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they’d be back for her someday, it’s been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan. But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in.

Everyone is invited.  Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.  Limited seating, first-come, first-served.  Doors open at 6:00.

  • Francine’s Friends Mobile Mammography
  • Main Library, Plaza
  • May 1, 2015
  • 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

The best protection is early detection — the American Cancer Society recommends that women have a mammogram every year starting at age 40.  Francine’s Friends Mobile Mammography coach makes getting a mammogram quick, easy and convenient for women throughout northeast Indiana.  The interior of the 40-foot-long motor coach is designed for complete privacy. Radiologic technologists from the Breast Diagnostic Center (BDC) staff the coach, which is furnished with the same FDA-approved and Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA)-approved equipment as the two stationary sites of the BDC. A mammogram takes only about 15 minutes. Board-certified breast-imaging radiologists from FW Radiology interpret  the exams.  Results will be sent to your doctor.

Screening mammography through this mobile service is for women who:

  • Are age 35 and older and have not had a mammogram in the past 12 months
  • Have no prior or current history of breast cancer or problems with their breasts
  • Are insured or uninsured

If you have insurance, BDC will bill the insurance company.  If you do not have insurance but have the ability to pay, BDC offers a reduced rate if paid the day of the screening.  If you do not have insurance or the resources to pay, funding is available.

Appointments should be scheduled prior to the date. Walk-in openings are available depending on schedule.  To schedule a mammogram or receive additional information, call 260-483-1847 or 1-800-727-8439 ext 26540.

Main Library TV Show Survey — Cast your vote!

TV shows are a popular part our collection — if only we had an unlimited budget and unlimited space!  We need your help to make the best use of both.  Each month, the Art, Music & Media department will conduct a survey to see what TV show you’re most interested in seeing added to the Main Library’s collection.  The survey will feature current patron requests and the TV show with the most votes will be added to the Main Library’s collection.  Click here for the link to the current month’s survey.  Be sure to include your library card number on the survey.  Patron responses that do not include a valid library card number, or those with more than one response, will be removed from the results of the survey.  Make your vote count!

We also encourage you to sign up for our New DVDs newsletter.  This monthly newsletter highlights new 3-day loan movies and TV shows at the Main Library.  Enter your email address at the bottom of this page to receive our New DVDs newsletter in your email inbox.  Don’t have email?  You can also bookmark this page, make it a favorite, or find it on the Art, Music & Media page.  Just remember to check it after the 13th each month to find out about the latest arrivals.

The current TV show survey will close April 30, 2015.
