The adaptation of the James Bond books by Ian Fleming in the 1960’s spawned a franchise (and adventure-seeking fantasy for spy lovers everywhere) that has continued to this day. We will view the first four films of the series with the actor that invented the character on film, Sean Connery, at the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library.

From Russia With Love (1963) Sean Connery, with Robert Shaw, Lotte Lenya. James Bond willingly plays along with a scheme involving a naive Russian beauty in order to retrieve a Soviet encryption device that was stolen by SPECTRE.

All films will be shown in the second floor events of the Main Library at 6:00 PM.

For more information, contact the Reference Desk at 256-532-5975. Read more about Bond...James Bond: The Connery Years - From Russia With Love

Introducing Paper Beads!  Paper bead making dates back to the early 20th century when turning scraps of decorative paper into jewelry was popular. Now is your chance to try this antique jewelry technique.

In this class you'll make a few beads using your choice of paper and a few simple tools.  Then you'll create a pair of earrings to take home.

All tools and materials will be provided, but you're welcome to bring your favorite scrapbooking paper. You can also use scraps of wallpaper or pages from old calendars or magazines.  A variety of earring findings will be available.  If you have allergies to metals or need clip-on earring findings, please feel free to bring your own.  For more information, call Sophie Young at 532-2362.
