[Movie Guy Voice]: In a World Where Your Library Has Pretty Much Everything for Movie Lovers…

The year 2020 may go down in history as the year of Book Movie Mania. While many films and television shows have their genesis in books, the number of adaptations coming in 2020 is remarkable.
As always, classic science fiction is a great source, and H.G. Wells’s The Invisible Man should make an interesting film. Of course, since there are several earlier versions, it will be especially fascinating to see what has changed. Your best bet is to check it out in printe-book or audio form and compare.
The same would work for Artemis Fowl, which is coming to screens in 2020 and is based on the young adult fantasy series. We have several e-versions of the stories, a Spanish language edition, and print and audio to help you decide if this would be appealing to you.
Dune may be one of the most eagerly awaited science fiction films in recent years and the print, e-book, and e-audio editions are all available. Check one out so you will know if this myth-based tale of a future that does not hinge on technology is for you.
James Bond fans look forward to No Time to Die. That may send many readers back to Ian Fleming’s tales of the spy with the shaken, not stirred, martini fixation.
Or, maybe you’d like to enjoy a free movie! For those in grades 6 – 12, if you’re still in the holiday spirit, Potomac Community Library will be showing Elf while playing Bingo on Jan. 2. Who doesn’t love the Oscars®? Join us at Bull Run Regional Library on Jan. 31. We’ll dress up, enjoy light refreshments, and watch a previous Academy Award® winning movie. Learn about movie programs being offered all month long at pwcgov.org/library.
Finally, if none of these films appeal to you, or if the idea of going out is just not a fun one, put on your jammies, grab some popcorn, and settle down on the couch with a DVD from the library. With a large collection of feature films – everything from science fiction to rom coms to suspense – your library is ready to entertain you in the cold, dark days of January.
Children from local schools raise their voices in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Bring a stuffed animal friend to listen to a story, do activities, and sing songs. Leave them overnight to see what new friends they make and pick them up the next day. Registration required.
