Kids Movie Day: Captain Underpants
Thursday, September 21 from 3:15–5:00PM
Classmates Harold and George come up with an outrageous idea to hypnotize their principal, Mr. Krupp and make him into a superhero. Wearing only his underwear and cape, Captain Underpants is so much nobler than Principal Krupp could ever be. Can this scheme of Harold & George’s last or will there be consequences for their bold actions? The movie is based on Dav Pilkey’s book series the Adventures of Captain Underpants.
Library staff will pick up K-3rd grade kids at school and escort them to the story room for movie day. Due to the school dismissal time for 4th and 5th graders, they will have to make their own transportation arrangements for attending movie day.
