Sensory-Friendly Big Screen Movie

The Hoover Public Library is starting to offer unique movie showings where we turn the lights up and the sound down, so you can enjoy your favorite films in a safe and accepting environment.  Patrons can move around or exit as needed, and we will have some noise-cancelling headphones available. Our first Sensory Friendly Movie will be shown in the Library Theatre on Friday, January 3, 2020 at 10 a.m.   Enjoy Charlotte's Web, E.B. White's charming tale of a spider that befriends a piglet.  This 1973 animated feature is rated G and runs 94 minutes.  Refreshments will be provided.  And, of course, everything is free!
