With the weather in March so unpredictable, it is nice to have a few indoor activities ready to go for unexpectedly cold or windy days. While we always love to suggest a good book to read, sometimes it is more fun to watch a movie.
Henrico County Public Library offers a great selection of movies, television shows, and documentaries to check out on DVD or to stream through our Hoopla Digital collection. These are perfect for spending a night in with some fancy gourmet popcorn or homemade pizza.
For an extra special treat, come to one of our free film screenings! Our libraries show a variety of screenings throughout the year, and this month we are showing some classic and thought-provoking films.
