We’re also thinking about starting a film group at Standley Lake Library. It would work like a book group – the group would decide which films to watch, watch the films on their own time, and come to film group to discuss it. If this interests you, please contact Susannah (susannah.patterson@jeffcolibrary.org) by email or at the Standley Lake Information Desk.
