Family Movie Matinee: Disney's Dumbo!

Hey, families! Help us celebrate the 70th anniversary of a Disney timeless classic—Dumbo! While the new version is playing in theaters, come and see the original animated version for FREE at the Dowagiac District Library! This movie is rated G, which makes it a great choice for all ages, and its run time is a short 64 minutes, so even the wiggliest kids should be able to sit through it. The movie will begin at 10:30 am sharp upstairs in the Youth Area, so plan to arrive a few minutes early.
