Movie Night: Wed., August 8th: 6:00-8:30pm

Join us for Movie Night on Wednesday, August 8, 2018, from 6:00-8:30pm.  We will be showing a recent movie where a family of four must stay in A Quiet Place or their survival will be threatened.  The movie stars Emily Blunt and Boston-born John Krasinski.

In a not-so-distant post-apocalyptic world, the Abbott family is forced to live in silence in a world full of creatures with extremely sensitive hearing who hunt by sound.  Stephen King wrote on Twitter, “A QUIET PLACE is an extraordinary piece of work. Terrific acting, but the main thing is the SILENCE, and how it makes the camera’s eye open wide in a way few movies manage.”

Associated Press writes, “It is smart, it moves fast, it has a hugely satisfying ending….”  Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 95% approval rating.

This summer, Malden Public Library is holding a Summer Reading program with the theme “Libraries Rock!”  We invite adults, children, and teens to join our Summer Reading program.  Please see our website for more details.

Join us for Movie Night for free popcorn and snacks and adults may enter our raffle to win some cool prizes, including movie tickets.

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 (90 min.)

Art Reception August 13th for Liz Campbell-Tompkins

Join us Monday, August 13 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. for a Reception of our Rotating Art August Artist Liz Campbell-Tompkins! As a retired Malden Public Schools 7th grade science teacher, Liz strives to illustrate the diversity of nature in front of us, or beneath us. There is a great variety of life right in our backyards here in Malden, but most are too small to appreciate. Liz’s goal is to raise awareness of the wonder surrounding our community.

Campbell-Tompkins’ art will be on exhibit at the Library through the month of August.
