Holiday events at New Haven Public Library Dec. 15 and 16
Editor's note: All information in this post was contributed. It is largely unedited here. (That means someone smart, maybe Carol Brown wrote it. Why did we not change it? Because it's the library and they know a lot about words. No quote marks? Oh well, we're telling you here they wrote it!)
NEW HAVEN - The downtown New Haven Free Public Library, 133 Elm St., celebrates the season with two holiday events this month.
On Thursday, Dec. 15, at 6 p.m., the Elm Street Book Group welcomes everyone to enjoy BIBLIO, a new board game developed by member Robin Smalls.
Based on Bingo and Trivia, this version contains holiday literary references culled from magical seasonal books.
Anyone who enjoys board games will not be bored by BIBLIO! New readers will be welcomed with cookies and fun. Parking is free, and so is the Blue State coffee for all who register online at www.biblio2011.eventbrite.com.
No registration is necessary for the holiday film on the next day, Dec. 16, at 3 p.m.
The library will screen the 1951 classic version of A Christmas Carol, with Alastair Sim as Scrooge.
IMBD.com calls this "the best film version of the story."
There is no charge, and viewers are invited to bring their own plum pudding. For more information call the library at 203-946-8835.
