First Day Back and Movies

All locations of the Des Moines Public Library are open their usual hours today. And you can once more return stuff in the book drops.  And call us if you have a problem with the web page.  We missed you too.  Did you get all those DVD's watched that you checked out for the long weekend?  I never watch them all but gotta have them because I can't go ONE MINUTE without being entertained.  Now that the excitement is over you may want movies with a little meat on their bones. Might I suggest:
Good night, and good luck  David Strathairn as Edward R. Murrow shot in gorgeous black-and-white.  I'm not even fooling.  It's beautiful.
The last station  Helen Mirren rages at Tolstoy as embodied by Christopher Plummer. They laugh a lot too.
Flash of genius Greg Kinnear invents interval wipers for cars and is totally ripped off by corporate America.

Small films, yet worthwhile. They can go on your list for your slow times.
