Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads!

Think you’ve seen it all? Think again. Outside those doors, we might see anything.
We could find new worlds, terrifying monsters, impossible things. And if you come with me…
nothing will ever be the same again! – Doctor Who

A Journey…


Starting on Monday, June 4th, SPL will be traveling “Back in Time.” We’ll journey all the way back to 1920 and each week, we’ll make our way forward to the 2000s. Remember poodle skirts, bell bottoms, and hammer pants? Even if you weren’t alive when they were popular, if you come with us, you’ll feel like you were there.

Here’s how it works

  • Mondays: we’ll post a brief history of that week’s decade and a list of the “Between the Decades” Programs.
  • Tuesdays: we’ll post a list of books for all-ages that were either written in or are set in that decade.
  • Wednesdays: we’ll post a list of movies/TV Shows/documentaries that are about or set in that decade.
  • Thursdays: we’ll post a list of music from that decade (we welcome guest blogger, Bridget Clark.)
  • Fridays: we’ll share some of the public book reviews from our Online Summer Reading Program.

Two more things before we go

You don’t have to wait until Monday to go back in time! This Friday, June 1, @ 2PM, we’ll be showing our 1920s Feature Film, The Great Gatsby. Stop in to enjoy some popcorn and A/C
