Looking for a screening room? Try the library

A new licensing agreement, along with a new smart TV and external sound system, has turned Peabody Township Library into a private screening room for movies from several major production companies.

A group of Westview Manor residents were among the first to have a private showing there.

“The new speaker system is loud enough to rattle the windows!” library director Rodger Charles said.

The library also has faster Internet access for community members.

In partnership with Peabody-Burns schools and Eagle Communications, the library has upgraded its old 10-megabit connection to 50-megabit bandwidth.

“The bandwidth is available 24 hours a day,” Charles said. “The increased bandwidth should allow much possibilities for expanding technology in Peabody Township.”

Thursday will be the final day of this summer’s summer reading program, “Build a Better World,” coordinated by Sarah Hittle. Program participants are being invited to a movie at the library at 9 a.m. Saturday.

Within the next couple of weeks, part of the library roof will be replaced in what library officials hope will be the construction project of the year.
