This month’s movies are St. Vincent and Night Crawler.  Registration is requested.

stvincent

St. Vincent : April 10, 2-3:45 pm

Maggie, a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver. Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent, a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka, Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine – the race track, a strip club, and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart.
Rated PG-13 for mature thematic material including sexual content, alcohol and tobacco use, and for language; 1 hour, 42 minutes.

nightcrawle

Night Crawler : April 24, 2-4 pm

Nightcrawler is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling — where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives. In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story.

Rated R for violence including graphic images, and for language; 1 hour, 57 minutes.

Have a smartphone? A tablet? Some other cool device that downloads apps?  If the answer is yes, you should download Bookmyne today!  Bookmyne is a mobile app that allows catalog searching, placing holds, barcode scanning and more!  You can learn more about it here.  We like it because the new version is easy to use and simple.

Once you’ve downloaded the app, “Find Library” and do a nearby or name search (Franklin Township Public Library).  Then “create account” and use your library card and PIN number.  Then you can view and change your holds, view your fees and checkouts, search the catalog and place holds!

To place a hold, search for the book you want via barcode, title, author or subject.  The title will come up and check the box next to the title after you’ve made sure it’s the right copy (regular vs large print for instance).  Once you’ve checked the box there will be a box on the bottom of the screen that says “Place hold?”.  Press it and you’re done!

Flyers are available at the Reference Desk for you to take home too.
