Since the weather is starting to warm up, there are going to be a lot more activities to partake in outdoors. However, if you’d rather stay indoors and simply enjoy a movie, than the Montclair Public Library (MPL) can you help with that. Starting the month of May, on every Wednesday at 2 p.m., MPL will be featuring matinee films. It will take place at the main library auditorium on 50 South Fullerton Ave. The event is open to all so bring all your family and friends. As a key objective for the MPL, it hosts free educational programs, family events and services seven days a week, hopefully to impact a plethora of lives with every act they pursue.

“The Every Wednesday Matinee has a regular following among our patrons, but we love to see new faces each week. We switch up the genre each month so that there is something for everyone throughout the year,” said Chelsea Dodd, Information Services Supervisor.

For more information on this event and the library calendar, please visit or call 973-744-0500 ext. 2235.
