Epping Library News

EPPING — Does a midday movie on Monday sound like a good way to start the week? Starting this month, adults are invited to enjoy a free movie on the big screen at The Harvey-Mitchell Memorial Library’s Monday Munch and Movie at 12:30 p.m. Bring a lunch and something to drink and settle into a movie downstairs while the kids are still in school. The selection for April 1 is a beautiful story about author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings’ move to central Florida and how it inspired her to write “The Yearling”. “Cross Creek”, made in 1983, features Mary Steenburgen, Peter Coyote, Rip Torn and Alfre Woodard. The film for April 8 will be “Splendor in the Grass”. For more information about upcoming movies, or to make a movie request for a future Monday, call 734-4587 or check the website at
