Library changes spring break movie to ‘Megamind’

The Camas Public Library will change one of the movies it will show during the popular annual spring break movies. On Friday, April 8 instead of, “The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” the library will show, “Megamind,” another recent PG movie.

The change occurred after it was brought to the library’s attention that the recently re-opened Liberty

Theatre in downtown Camas is showing “The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” the same week.

“There are plenty of movies out there,” said Ellen Good, youth services librarian.

“In the interest of more variety and coordinating with the theater, we’re switching titles.”

The full schedule for the spring break movies can be found on the Camas Public Library’s website,
