MT LAUREL—Enjoy lunch and a movie at the Mt Laurel Library as the “Real to Reel” documentary series returns April 23 and 30.

The Mt Laurel Library introduced the documentary series last month, screening a three-part documentary about life behind the scenes in England’s nearly 1,000-year-old Windsor Castel.

This month, patrons may choose which documentary they want to see out of eight options: “War Letters,” “Outlaws and Gunslingers,” “Burn: 1 Year on the Frontlines of the Battle to Save Detroit,” “Code Black,” “Forbidden City,” ��You are There,” “Wolves at our Door” and “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.”

“We’re in the process of voting on what documentary people want to watch,” librarian Chrissie Humphrey said.

Polls are open through April 10. Patrons may stop by the library to pick up more information and a ballot to cast their votes.

The chosen documentary will be screened in two parts on Thursday, April 23 at 12:30 p.m. and Thursday April 30 at 12:30 p.m.

The event is free and attendants are invited to bring lunch. The library will provide lemonade, coffee and desserts. For more information, call the Mt Laurel Library at 439-5512.
