How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Bitter and hateful, the Grinch is irritated at the thought of the nearby village having a happy time celebrating Christmas.

The movie will start at 3:30 pm in the Kozak Room!


Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa’s elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father.

After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results. (PG)


Lunch & Learn

Lunch & Learn is a monthly program at the Vermillion Public Library designed to fit within your lunch hour!

In observance of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, the December Lunch & Learn will be dedicated to showing the PBS documentary, Pearl Harbor: Into the Arizona.

The USS Arizona has been resting on Pearl Harbor’s ocean floor for the past 75 years. For the first time since it was destroyed in 1941, scientists have the technology to take an in-depth look
inside the ship. Once considered the pride of its fleet, the Arizona has taken on drastic changes in the shallow waters of the Pearl. This comprehensive search of the USS Arizona sheds light on one of the darkest days in American history. The discoveries made inside the ship are a stark reminder of all those who paid the ultimate price for their country. The expedition retells personal stories of survivors who lived through Japan’s surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. It also brings a survivor who was aboard the Arizona back to see the ship for what might be one last time. A sight he never thought he’d see again.

Watch this 60-minute documentary while you eat your lunch at the library on Friday, December 7th at 12:00 pm. This event is free and open to the public.
