Disney’s irresistible talking puppies are back in an all-new movie that takes them halfway across the world to the ruins of ancient Egypt. “Treasure Buddies” will be shown on Wednesday, February 15 at 1:45 p.m. as an early release film. In a race against a devious cat, the Buddies and their new friends, Cammy and Babi, must avoid booby traps, solve puzzles, and explore a mysterious tomb, all in search of the greatest treasure known to animal kind. The film is rated G and 93 minutes long. The library will provide the popcorn but children need to bring their own drinks.

Back in the summer of 1947, Milly and Twiss knew nothing about trying to mend what had been accidentally broken in the debut novel, “The Bird Sisters” by Rebecca Rasmussen. That was the summer their golf-pro father got in an accident that cost him both his swing and his charm; their mother, the daughter of a wealthy jeweler, finally admitted their hardscrabble lives would never change. It was the summer that a boy named Asa finally caught Milly’s eye. Most unforgettably, it was the summer their cousin Brett changed the course of their lives forever. This novel was also chosen by the Ladies’ Home Journal for their Book Club.
