Life in the circus, soldiers' K-9 companions, British royalty and Mr. Rogers will be among the topics of Noon Films when the documentary series returns on Thursday at Willard Library in Battle Creek.
The Noon Films offer people the opportunity to learn something new while enjoying the camaraderie of other movie fans. It's a good excuse to get out and about during the winter.
The documentaries will be shown at noon on Thursdays in the Willard Meeting Room on the second floor. Light refreshments will be provided.
My favorite among this series of films is 'Won't you be my Neighbor?' about children's television host Fred Rogers, I learned a lot of things I didn't know about Mr. Rogers' life.
The Noon Films schedule is:
- Jan. 3—Alone on the Island of the Blue Dolphins
- Jan. 10—Swim Team
- Jan. 17—War Dog: A Soldier's Best Friend
- Jan. 24—Secrets of Her Majesty's Secret Service
- Jan. 31—The Circus
- Feb. 7—Won't you be my Neighbor.
Willard Library programs are free and open to the public.
