Just Out of the Box…Office Movie Series at 2 & 7 PM <em>The Bookshop</em> 2:00 PM
Just Out of the Box…Office Movie Series at 2 & 7 PM The Bookshop
Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy, Patricia Clarkson

2019, Rated PG, 114 minutes

"England, 1959. Free-spirited widow Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) follows her lifelong dream by opening a bookshop in a conservative coastal town. While bringing about a cultural awakening through works by Ray Bradbury and Vladimir Nabokov, she earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame (Patricia Clarkson) and the support of a reclusive, book-loving widower (Bill Nighy). As Florence's obstacles amass, she reminds herself that a town without a bookshop is no town at all. Based on Penelope Fitzgerald's acclaimed novel, The Bookshop is an elegant rendering of personal resolve and the battle for the soul of a community."

In our Just Out of the Box Office series we show a recently released movie each month.

Light refreshments will be served.  Read more...

50 Years of Pride: Pride Month Film Series 2019: <em>Pride</em> 7:00 PM
50 Years of Pride: Pride Month Film Series 2019: Pride
The Library is pleased to announce our 3rd Annual “Pride Month Film Series” for 2019. Airing Thursday nights this June (June 6, 13, 20, and 27) at 7pm, these four films from the U.S. and overseas celebrate the spectrum and diversity of the LGBTQ+ experience and the 50th anniversary of the historic Stonewall Uprising.

Our fourth movie, on Thursday, June 27, will be Pride, a crowd-pleasing and inspiring movie from the U.K. based on an extraordinary true story. It's the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers' families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all. (U.K., 2014, 1:59, Rated R)  Read more...

Life in Miniature: Fisher-Price “Little People” and Toy Sets that Mimic Real Life

Life in Miniature: Fisher-Price “Little People” and Toy Sets that Mimic Real Life
Exhibit in second level F.M. Kirby Gallery, June 16–August 25, 2019

Fisher-Price has long produced toys for which many children (and later adults) remember fondly from their childhood. One of the most iconic production lines ever produced by the company though is “Little People”—though not officially called that until decades later—miniaturized play sets that mimicked life on a farm, in a school or in a town that became popular toys for four generations of children. The line of toys was so popular that certain play sets—the farm, the family house, the castle—have been reissued several times and Fisher-Price had competition from several other similar toy sets from rival companies. These playthings and more will be displayed in a Library exhibit this summer in our second level F.M. Kirby Gallery.  Read more...

Learn something NEW! Our Library of Things is available for lending!
The Library staff are always looking for ways for our patrons to learn new things and a new collection can help with that: our ‘Library of Things’!

The Library of Things’ collection offers Morristown and Morris Township residents an opportunity to explore a new hobby or try something new before purchasing the equipment, or otherwise wouldn’t have the space to keep.

Want to try a sewing project, or check for buried treasure in and around town? Invite friends over for an outdoor film screening, or perhaps challenge your family to Frisbee golf in the back yard, or study the planets and constellations through a telescope?
