So many books, so little time. Funny how that still rings true, even during a pandemic when it seems time is standing still. In case you haven’t already maxed out your screen time, here are a few books that have recently been made into movies, all available through the MidPointe Library System. Grab your library card and download or place a hold on the book and/or movie today! Please note, physical items are available for pick up via curbside service at our Middletown, Trenton and West Chester locations or from SmartLockers in Wayne Township and Liberty Center.

If you are participating in MidPointe's Summer Reading program, don't forget to check off "Adapted into a movie" on your Activity Map
