Upcoming Science Fiction / Horror Movie nights in 2020

For the 2020 season the Science Fiction / Horror Movie series will follow two themes: The Science Fiction theme will be robot related and the Horror theme will be haunted houses. Both of these themes are well covered in literature and on screen (big and little). Robots have been a Science Fiction staple since the early 20th century. And haunted houses are a favorite horror theme.

Forbidden PlanetA starship crew goes to investigate the silence of a planet's colony only to find two survivors and a deadly secret that one of them has. This movie features one of the most well known movie robots, Robbie the robot.

Menu & Catalog Changes

Today there are changes to the card catalog link and library menu structure.

You can now enter words to search the catalog by directly on the library web pages (upper left in the menu bar).  There is no button; hit return and the CW Mars website will deliver your results in a new window.  This should speed the process, with one less page to load, especially for those on slow connections.  This card catalog search box is now also in the menu structure for the entire town of Wendell website so you don't even need to open the library page to get card catalog results. 

There is a separate link for kids catalog that now has the same treatment.  It will be in a new "kids" menu.

I've started a complete re-design of the library menu structure. 

Summary of changes:
- New "Research" section including online databases and other catalogs.
- Kids section
- Museum Passes in "Resources"
- Digital Media menu moved into "Resources"
- New "About" section containing info about the library as an organization

The link to the Wendell Library page has been removed from the library menu, however you can still get back to the library home page by clicking "Wendell Free Library" at the top of every library page.  (This "Wendell Free Library" title has yet to be styled).  The town of Wendell menu link is dropped and replaced by a "Wendell A-Z" drop down menu.  In the meantime, clicking the "Wendell" logo at top left will get you back to the main Wendell website.
