Space in the parking lot is limited on a first come, first served basis. All attendees must stay in or on their own personal vehicle, with the exception of our “Family Circles”. Snacks will not be provided, but feel free to bring your own. Thank you in advance for disposing of your trash responsibly. Weather permitting.  
“Family Circles”: We will have 3 socially distant “Family Circles” close to the screen where a family can watch the movie outside of their car. This option is also first come, first served. Please park your vehicle in the library staff parking lot (the lot across the street) and walk over to an open circle. You may want to bring lawn chairs/blankets to sit on.
