Voorheesville Library Notes for Thursday, December 19, 2013

On Monday, Dec. 30, at 1 p.m., join us at the Voorheesville Public Library to watch Planes. Enjoy the big screen, munch some popcorn, and watch as a crop-dusting airplane, with a fear of heights, live his dream of competing in an around-the-world race. This movie is rated PG with some mild action and rude humor.

Join the friends
