Hey all you teenaged-type folks:  we know all about your obsession with graphic novels, manga and other comic-related art forms.  In other words, you'd better be joining us for a special program dedicated to the history and industry behind this popular genre.  If you're interested in a career in comics or are just interested to learn something new about something you already love, then join us on Thursday, March 5th at 7pm.

This program will be presented by special guest Matt Forrester, comic book buff and industry veteran.

Teen Movie Night has been rescheduled! We will be showing "The Simpsons Movie" on March 7th.

Join us on Saturday, March 7th at 6pm in the Art Gallery to watch America's favorite animated family in their silver screen debut!

Witness the hilarity that ensues when Homer accidentally pollutes the town's water supply, Springfield is encased in a gigantic dome by the EPA, and the Simpsons family are declared fugitives.  You don't want to miss this!
