Held at the Library in conjunction with Friends of The Library Dundee Florida Inc , the turnout for the event was tremendous , with the children and their parents in attendance having a wonderful time. With the limited capacity seating, the Library staged a great movie night and with the free refreshments (popcorn, candy sodas and water) on hand , there was no denying the night would be a tremendous success.

Our next free Movie Night Presentation is scheduled for the Friday 18th August at 6:30 pm here at the Dundee Public Library and the movie being shown will be ‘Smurfs The Lost Village’ . As we can only accommodate a maximum of forty-nine occupants (people) for each showing , we would advise parents and guardians to simply register child or children in advance if they wish to attend.
