It sure is cold outside and though we may not have seen much snow yet this winter, it can still feel like the holidays when you cozy up with a spirited film. Check out Blair Memorial Library and peruse their wide selection of movies which includes plenty of winter classics (all of which are clearly labeled with a candy cane sticker).
