FilmFriday Night Movie at Thomas Library

Westchester Public Library will host Friday Night at the Movies on Friday, January 3, at 6:30 pm. Families are invited to walk the red carpet into the Children's Department at Thomas Library, 200 W. Indiana Avenue, Chesterton, to view the Disney movie Planes. Have your picture taken while walking the red carpet. No registration is necessary.

Dusty is just a crop-duster plane who fears heights and has a crazy dream: he wants to be a racer. He gets the training he needs from veteran plane Skipper and enters the Wings across the World race. As the underdog, Dusty is tested to his physical and emotional limits. While some of his competitors befriend him, others try to remove him from the race. Will they be successful? Who will win the air race?
