Families can enjoy free movies that celebrate diversity at the Nicholson Memorial Library System’s South Garland Branch Library this spring.
The next event in the program series, Let’s Go to the Movies, will be held on Saturday, Feb. 24 at 3 p.m. and consists of a screening of Cool Runnings in honor of Black History Month. The film is rated PG and relates the story of a Jamaican runner who fails to qualify for the Summer Olympic Games but goes on to create the first Jamaican bobsled team.
All films in this series are full-length children’s movies. Doors open 15 minutes prior to the events. Seating is limited. No registration is required, and all ages may attend these events. Free popcorn and water are available while supplies last.
