After School Movie

The April 12th after school movie is A Bug’s Life!

Flik (Dave Foley) is an inventive ant who’s always messing things up for his colony. His latest mishap was destroying the food stores that were supposed to be used to pay off grasshopper Hopper (Kevin Spacey). Now the strong-arming insect is demanding that the ants gather double the food — or face annihilation. To avert disaster, Flik goes on a journey to recruit fighters to defend the colony. When he meets a band of high-flying circus insects, he thinks he’s found his salvation.

Paul has been a photographer for 40 years, and now has a prolific photo series dedicated to locating the sites of historic images from across the USA and ‘re-photographing’ them. 

Learn more about Paul online at, and be sure you don’t miss his presentation here at the library on Monday, April 8th! He will be selling and signing copies of his books after the program. Starts at 7:00 pm in the Kozak Room.

After School Movie

The after school movie for April 5th is E.T.!

After a gentle alien becomes stranded on Earth, the being is discovered and befriended by a young boy named Elliott (Henry Thomas). Bringing the extraterrestrial into his suburban California house, Elliott introduces E.T., as the alien is dubbed, to his brother and his little sister, Gertie (Drew Barrymore), and the children decide to keep its existence a secret. Soon, however, E.T. falls ill, resulting in government intervention and a dire situation for both Elliott and the alien.

Lunch & Learn

Join us at the Vermillion Public Library for Lunch & Learn with Speakers Bureau Scholar Roderick Brown, who will be giving a presentation on the tribal artifacts that can be found at the Dakota Discovery Museum in Mitchell, South Dakota. The presentation will focus on two factors intertwined with cultural change among Plains tribes, the introduction of glass beads, and the near extermination of buffalo (or bison). 

Lunch & Learn programs are designed to fit within your lunch hour. Refreshments will be served, and guests are also welcome to bring their own food. 

This program was made possible by the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
