Sandy Library to screen 'Home Alone' for families

Missing the fun events that happen in Sandy in the summer? Kids itching to get out of the house? Why not join community members for a last-minute holiday movie at the Sandy Library?

At 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 28, the Sandy Library will screen the 1990 holiday classic “Home Alone.” The event is one of several family movie nights that have been held at the Sandy Library.

Children’s Librarian Monica Smith usually picks movies that are based on a book, but “Home Alone” is the first and only movie that is not. She said she picked it solely because it is a fun holiday movie.

Although the last movie night, which was held in the spring, brought in only about five people, Smith hopes the winter weather will attract more viewers.

“I want to bring people into the library,” she said. “But I also feel like we need more things to do in the winter for kids and teens.”

Refreshments will be provided. Smith usually provides cookies and apple juice. She hopes popcorn is a possibility this time around.

This winter, the library will host two more movie night events. At 2 p.m. Jan. 25, families can come watch “The City of Ember,” and at 2 p.m. Feb. 15, the library will show “The Princess Bride.”
