“Movie Night at the Library” will be Tuesday at 7 p.m. with a showing of “The Cheap Detective” in the Community Room. This movie parodies old gangster films and movies like “Casablanca” and “The Maltese Falcon.” Even if you haven’t seen those classics, it still supplies a ton of laughs. Popcorn will be served.
The Bradley County Community Cinema: Documentaries/Short Films at the Library will be showing an Evening of Short Films in the Community Room, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. Short films are the movie equivalent of short stories and the challenge is to tell a complete — and hopefully engaging — story in a limited amount of time. Like short stories, short films are an art in and of themselves, for, like short stories, they require greater discipline than one would need for a longer work. These five, short live-action films were the ones nominated for the Academy Award in that category for 2012.
Reservations for the Friends of the Library Association’s Fall Author Luncheon at Cleveland Country Club are still being accepted at the library for Oct. 24. Merchant’s Alley will include Orange Blossom, Bryant’s Garden Center, Silpada Jewelry, Cleveland Therapeutic Massage, Red Ribbon, The Shoe Tree, Audrey Lea’s Ladies Boutique, Miche purses, Arbonne Cosmetics, Premiere Jewelry and NYR Organics. The cost for the luncheon is $35 per person.
Due to a change in the library’s automation system, the library will be closed from Nov. 11 to Nov. 15. No items checked out will be due during this closure. The library will reopen at 9 a.m. on Nov. 15.
