National Library Week puzzle April 15, El Analfabeto April 24
In celebration of National Library Week, the Howland Public Library welcomes the public to help put together a few jigsaw pieces of their “Book Cover” jigsaw puzzle on Wednesday, April 15, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Just for fun, this group effort invites everyone from the young to the young-at-heart to help complete the puzzle.
The Mexican film El Analfabeto (The Illiterate One) will be shown at the Howland Public Library on Friday, April 24, at 7 p.m. In this comedy, a janitor receives an inheritance letter, but refusing to admit he can’t read it, he is unaware of its amazing content. This 1962 film is unrated and runs for 110 minutes. All films are shown in their original language with English subtitles. Doors open at 6:30 and the film starts promptly at 7.
All events are free and no registration is required. The library is at 313 Main St. in Beacon. For more information, contact Alison Herrero, adult services librarian, at 845-831-1134. To see all upcoming events at the Howland Public Library, go to beaconlibrary.org and click on Calendar.
