Wednesday Movie Matinee

Come to the library at 2:00pm on Wednesday, May 6 to watch “It Should Happen to You,” in which a slightly daffy New York model named Gladys Glover (Judy Holliday), with an urge to be famous, rents a huge billboard overlooking New York’s Columbus Circle and puts her name on it. Co-stars Peter Lawford and Jack Lemmon in his first film.


Refreshments provided by the Friends of the Library.
