Join us for a summer night of books plus a movie!

Posted on July 22, 2019 at 3:42 pm by Peter Ibrahim

Join the Police at the first of three Friday Night Reads events planned to coincide with the City’s upcoming Menlo Movie Series. The readings will take place before the movie Friday, July 26, 2019, from 6:45–8:15 p.m. at the Belle Haven Youth Center, 100 Terminal Ave. Children and families are invited to meet their neighborhood police officers, eat pizza and get an autographed book of some of the officer's favorite stories. Books are geared for ages 2–14 years. 

Pizza and refreshments will be provided and children can listen to officers read excerpts from selected books. Each child gets to select a book to take home, and have it signed by the officers. Library staff will also be on hand to provide information about our local Menlo Park libraries.

Immediately following the Friday Night Reads event, the Menlo Movie Series kicks off with the animation and action feature, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The movie starts at 8:30 p.m. and will take place at the courtyard entrance of the Onetta Harris Community Center. Families are welcome to bring snacks and a blanket or chair to sit down and enjoy the movie with their neighbors.
