Museum Pass Program
Counting down until spring? Why not embrace the art of being frozen? 

The Musuem of the City of New York is now featuring New York on Ice: Skating in the City which explores how ice skating evolved in the city from its colonial Dutch and British origins to become a 19th-century craze, and later an opportunity for elaborate spectacle, commercialized leisure, and competitive sport in the 20th century and beyond. Along the way, skating has left its mark on New York's urban landscape, from the design of Central Park, to intimate hotel rinks and extravagant arenas, to a plethora of skating facilities that today define and transform parks and other public spaces across the city.

The story of New York on Ice will be told through vintage photographs, posters, lithographs, paintings, and costumes. Together they reveal the evolution of the sport and art of ice skating in the city both as a window into a passion and pastime of generations of New Yorkers, and as an unexpected ingredient of urban place-making.

All of this for FREE through the library's museum pass program!

Mondays at the Movies 
Monday February 5, Shotmeyer Room, 2 pm:

Miracle (2004, PG, 135 min) sports starring Kurt Russell, Patricia Clarkson, Noah Emmerich, Sean McCann, Eddie Cahill

The inspiring story of the team that transcended its sport and united a nation with a new feeling of hope. Based on the true story of one of the greatest moments in sports history, the tale captures a time and place where differences could be settled by games and a cold war could be put on ice. In 1980, the United States Ice Hockey team's coach, Herb Brooks, took a ragtag squad of college kids up against the legendary juggernaut from the Soviet Union at the Olympic Games. Despite the long odds, Team USA carried the pride of a nation yearning from a distraction from world events. With the world watching the team rose to the occasion, prompting broadcaster Al Michaels' now famous question, to the millions viewing at home: "Do you believe in a miracle? Yes!"
Monday February 12, Shotmeyer Room, 2 pm:

Top Hat (1935, NR, 101 min) musical/romance starring Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Edward Everett Horton, Helen Broderick, Eric Blore 

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dance---and romance---from London to Venice in this tip-top musical full of Irving Berlin tunes. Top Hat centers on a typical mistaken-identity plot, with wealthy Dale Tremont (Rogers), on holiday in London and Venice, assuming that American entertainer Jerry Travers (Astaire) is the husband of her friend Madge (Helen Broderick) -- who's actually the wife of Jerry's business manager Horace Hardwick (Edward Everett Horton). The duo's fourth of 10 screen pairings was nominated for Best Picture. 
Monday February 19, Shotmeyer Room, 2 pm:

NO MOVIE   The library is CLOSED in observance of President's Day.







Monday February 26, Shotmeyer Room, 2 pm:

Dunkirk (2017, PG-13, 105 min) drama starring Fionn Whitehead, Damien Bonnard, Aneurin Barnard, Tom Hardy, Tom Glynn-Carney

Acclaimed auteur Christopher Nolan directs this World War II thriller about the evacuation of Allied troops from the French city of Dunkirk before Nazi forces can take hold. Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance co-star, with longtime Nolan collaborator Hans Zimmer providing the score.

Now is the Time to Get Creative at the NEW Maker Space!
The  Maker Space at the Wyckoff Library is a place for community members to connect, discover, and create.  The library strives to provide enriching opportunities for people to learn new skills and collaborate.  The  Maker  Space will provide access to a variety of tools that allow patrons to make, explore, and tinker.  Acquiring basic technology skills is essential in the 21st century. Libraries are a logical place for the community to come together to learn and explore technology-new and old.

The library received a grant from State Farm to create a Maker Space. Residents helped to secure the grant through voting online. Additional support for equipment has been given from the Friends of the Wyckoff Library.
