This week is full of excitement at your local library.

Tuesday has events for children, teens and adults. Little friends can attend preschool story time at 10:30 a.m. in the Community Room. Join in reading stories about mice — from four rambunctious mice who don’t want to go to bed, to a girl whose hair becomes a nest for mice when she doesn’t want to brush it. Construct a precious mouse craft with a fun and crazy tail.

Teens have their monthly book chat at 4:30 p.m. in the Teen Zone. “Code Name Verity,” by Elizabeth Wein, a Michael L. Printz Award Honor book that highlights how true friendship can overcome all odds, will be discussed this month. This book discussion is geared towards ages 13-17.

Wrapping up Tuesday night the adults will have their award-winning, monthly movie showing of “American Hustle” at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room. Doors will not open until 6:15 p.m. Director David O. Russell tells the tale of an FBI agent (Bradley Cooper) who partners up with a con man (Christian Bale) and his stunning mistress (Amy Adams) to take down corrupt politicians and gangsters.

The film is set in 1970s New York City, which makes the wardrobe alone enough to make it entertaining. See Bale and newcomer Jennifer Lawrence as you have never seen them before. With this showing we will have a strict 18-year age and older policy. Popcorn provided.

Thursday at 4:30 p.m., teens will have their monthly Scribblers Writing Club meeting where they explore fiction, poetry and narrative nonfiction through writing prompts. Teens may also bring writing projects to workshop.
