Library movie, reading Feb. 6 The Sweet Home Public Li- brary is offering story hour and then a free movie on Monday, Feb, 6. Family Story Hour will fea- ture "The Indian in the Cupboard," by Lynn Reid Banks, beginning at 4 p.m. on Feb. 6 at the library. Here's a story synopsis: "What could be better than a magic cup- board that turns small toys into liv- ing creatures? Omri's big brother has no birthday present for him, so he gives Omri an old medicine cabinet he's found. Although their mother supplies a key, the cabinet still doesn't seem like much of a present. But when an exhausted Omri dumps a plastic toy Indian into the cabinet just before falling asleep, the magic begins. Turn the key once and the toy comes alive; turn it a second time and it's an ac- tion figure again." At 6 p.m., the library is screen- ing "The Help." The movie is an adaptation of the number-one New York Times bestseller by Kathryn Stockett. For more information, call the library at (541) 367-5007.
