GREENVILLE – The Greenville Public Library will be hosting a “movie matinee” on Nov. 2, as its First Friday event. The popular film The Help will start at 2 p.m. in the upstairs Meeting Room. Since seating is limited, please pick up a free ticket at the Circulation Desk. Feel free to bring your own snacks!
This event is possible due to a new theater system that was recently installed in the Meeting Room, thanks to generous gifts from The Friends of the Library and John and Beth Vehre. The idea for the system was part of the original plans of the expansion and renovation project in 2005. The Library’s very grateful for the donations that made this idea a reality.
Reuben Kennet, IT Tech, explains that a “sound bar” along the bottom of the screen provides a surround-sound effect without the need for a lot of speakers in the room. Also included is a Blu-ray player and a DVD player.
This new system is available to anyone who uses the Meeting Room and can be plugged into any laptop that has a HDMI port. The Library will be using it for Teen and Family programs as well as its own seminars. Librarian Deb Cameron has plans to show additional films with the theme “Books Made into Movies.”
