A perfect gift for your loved ones – a book spine in the library (now reduced to $99)
If you're looking for a great year-end gift idea for your kids' teachers or organization leaders, check out our "book spines." These beautiful mini-plaques, designed to look like spines of books, are engraved or hand-lettered with a name or message of your choice and mounted permanently on a library wall.
Best news: For our 20th anniversary, we have reduced the spine prices to $99.
Book spines come in two styles: wood and ceramic. You can see both in the adult and children's wings of the Folsom Library. For a pdf order form and more information, click here. Or go to our "Bookspines" page from the tabs above.

Sunday Cinema Series: Next free movie April 27
The next entry in the library's Sunday Cinema Series is Stories We Tell, a 2012 Canadian documentary film written and directed by Sarah Polley and produced by the National Film Board of Canada. The film explores Polley's family secrets-- including the revelation that her father was not the man who raised her. Several journalists had known about the story of her biological father but respected Polley's wish to tell it in her own words.
Stories We Tell premiered August 29, 2012, at the 69th Venice International Film Festival and played at Telluride, Toronto and Sundance.
The Sunday Cinema series is sponsored by a partnership of the Folsom Public Library and the Folsom Film Society. All movies in this series are free. Showings begin at 1 p.m. in the library meeting room.
