Gotta Catch 'em All: Pokémon GO at the Library

Are you looking to add to your Pokédex on Pokémon GO? Do you just have to catch them all? Look no further!

Some of our CRRL branches are now Pokémon stops, and some are even gyms! Headquarters, Porter, and England Run have already joined in on the Poké hunt. Cooper Branch is even a gym! Look at the Bellsprout that was captured right outside England Run! And, a wild Pidgey appeared, right in the middle of the children's research desk at Headquarters! How many more can you find?

Come meet and battle with other hunters, exchange Pokémon, and have fun!

Porter’s Saturday Matinee Movie: Skyfall

Skyfall (2012): Starring Daniel Craig, Dame Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes. Rated PG-13. Being shown FREE at the Porter Library, on Saturday, July 16th @ 1:30 as part of Porter’s Saturday Matinee Movie “Summer of Dames” series.

A botched operation results in vital secrets related to British security being lost, after which a shaky Bond returns to MI6. He and MI6 minister M face extra scrutiny from Gareth Mallory, a Member of Parliament who believes the Double O program may be obsolete. A series of escalating terrorist attacks targeting M—perpetuated by the sinister Raoul Silva—forces M to confront dark secrets from her past. For fans, the film provides a first-time glimpse into Bond’s backstory and examines what it means to identify, recruit, and train a person to be “licensed to kill.”
