Celebrate National Library Week - See Double Feature at Ewa Beach Library on April 14

In celebration of National Library Week 2014 (April 13-19), Ewa Beach Public & School Library will present free screenings of two blockbuster movies on Monday, April 14 in the Meeting Room:

• 3 p.m. – “The Hunger Games - Catching Fire.”  In this sequel to the multi-award-winning blockbuster “The Hunger Games,” our heroine Katniss Everdeen and fellow tribute Peeta Mellark have returned home safely after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games.  Winning means they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts.  Along the way Katniss senses a rebellion simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell); a competition that could change Panem forever.  Based on “Catching Fire” (2009), the second book of a trilogy by Suzanne Collins, this movie is rated PG-13 and suitable for ages 12 and older.
