Salvation Army Christmas Angels and Food Drive

The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program is a great way to bring joy into a child’s life. It’s easy and gratifying to make sure there is a much needed present waiting for a youngster when they wake up Christmas morning. Simply select a paper Angel from among those adorning the Angel Tree at the Circulation Desk; each represents a child and includes information such as their first name, age, gender and wished for gift. No need to wrap the present. Just drop off the gift with its Angel tag at the Circulation Desk by Dec. 13 for distribution through the organization’s Toy Store.

The food drive continues as the Library collects for the Salvation Army’s work during the Christmas season. These non-perishables are suggested by the staff: peanut butter, tuna, mayonnaise, jelly, oatmeal, macaroni and cheese, spaghetti sauce and pasta. Donations of ethnic foods are encouraged. The collection container will be out on the main floor opposite the circulation desk through the end of December.

Movie Night: Wed., Dec. 12th: 6:00-8:00pm

Join us for Movie Night on Wednesday, December 12, 2018, from 6:00-8:00pm.  We will be showing a recent blockbuster based on the book, Crazy Rich Asians, by Kevin Kwan.  The film stars Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong, and Michelle Yeoh.

“A native New Yorker Rachel Chu accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young, to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors.”

TIME Magazine writes, “It’s simply great fun, a winsome romantic comedy and an occasionally over-the-top luxury fantasy that never flags.” Richard Roeper writes, “Crazy Rich Asians…is pure escapist fantasy fun.”  Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 92% approval rating.

This film is free and open to the public and is accessible.  Movie times are approximate.  Please call the Malden Public Library at 781-324-0218 for more information.  Rated PG-13 (120 min.)
