Books 2 Movies is a collaborative partnership between the Park City Library, Summit County Library and the Park City Film Series that engages young readers in literature through film, and introduces them to the art of cinematic storytelling. These Free films are screened on the first Saturday of each month at 4pm at the Park City and Kimball Junction Libraries. Selected films are based on popular children’s/young adult books with the intent of getting kids hooked on books by introducing them to engaging characters and story lines. Members of the community are encouraged to read the books upon which the films are based prior to the movie, although this is not required to attend. Admission is free.
First Saturday at 4pm:

This program is the only program of it’s kind in the state of Utah and one of a select few across the country. Screenings on held at the Park City and Kimball Junction Libraries on the second Saturday of each month at 3pm. Admission is free.
