JEFFERSON CITY – The Missouri River Regional Library wants to remind the public that it provides a wide variety of programming for people of all ages.
“Today’s library is so much more than just books,” said Helen Rigdon, director of the Missouri River Regional Library. “We provide our patrons with lectures, movies, craft groups, gardening classes. The library is a very ‘social’ gathering place.”
Recent MRRL program have included a series of lectures on civility and compassion, a series about the Civil War in Missouri, and a current gardening program in conjunction with the Cole County Extension Office.
This summer, the library will again partner with Jefferson City Parks and Recreation for the annual Stars Under the Stars – Outdoor Summer Movie Series and will include
• June 8 – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
• July 13 – Jumanji
• Aug. 3 – Meet Me in St. Louis
The movies will be shown on a giant inflatable screen under the stars and on the south lawn of the State Capitol.
In addition, there are regular activities for parents of young children including Family Movie Night, storytimes, and crafts.
“There is so much going on at the library all of the time and one of the best parts is that it’s all free,” said Rigdon. “I encourage people to take a look at our online calendar and I’m sure that they will find something that interests them.”
