Tuesday Movie Fest: Summerfest
The free film for this week The Maltese Falcon, a film based on the novel by Dashiell Hammett (Adult Mystery Hammett) and described by film critic Roger Ebert as "among the movies we not only love, but treasure." The film tells the story of a private detective who takes on a case involving three eccentric criminals all competing in a quest for a jewel-encrusted statuette of a falcon. This was the first film directed by John Huston and stars Humphrey Bogart. Join us for this free showing in the Library's Community Room.
More About North Shore Library
Serving Bayside, Fox Point, Glendale and River Hills, this library has supported these communities since 1979. The North Shore Library actually began as the Fox Point-Bayside Library in a 5,000-square-foot area leased from Stormonth Elementary School.
In 1986, Cardinal Strich University sold property that is now the Coventry Apartments and the current building off the west end of the campus. That sale included a provision that stated Glendale would receive 20,000-square-feet of that building for common use. That space has become the library.
The North Shore Library lends out fiction, non-fiction, audiobooks, videos, DVDs and CD-ROMS, periodicals, art prints, children's books, children's audiobooks, children’s videos, children's kits and magazines. The library’s website features a calendar of monthly events.
