Make S-t-r-e-t-c-h Bracelets, Thursday, April 2, 2 p.m.

Movie: Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, Monday, April 6, 2 p.m.
End spring break with a comedy! Starring Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner, this 2014 movie focuses on Alexander, who begins the day with gum stuck in his hair, followed by more calamities. However, he finds little sympathy from his family and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him, his mom, dad, brother and sister — who all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. No sign-up is required. Run time is 81 minutes.
See you at the Library!
