Library Information


Family Outdoor Movie Nights

Due to Covid 19, the SWANK Motion Pictures, Inc. has granted all their public library movie license holders the opportunity to show certain movie outdoors free of charge until July 1st, 2022. Hanston City Library has taken advantage of this to hold family friendly movies on Saturday nights whenever possible. The library purchased a projector and movie screen which is set up on the Northside of the library building for each movie. Patrons can bring their own folding chairs or blankets, sit back and relax with family and friends and enjoy a movie under the stars. Movies will start around dark, with times varying as the year goes on. The upcoming movie will be posted in the front window of the library and along the side bar in this website.

Hodgeman County Economic Development has also graciously provided the library with a sound system, popcorn machine, popcorn making supplies, and bottled water for each movie.  Popcorn is made fresh for each movie and is provided for free along with bottled water to patrons of the movie while supplies last.


September 25th – Under the Stadium Lights (PG-13)

After a crushing defeat ended their prior season, everyone counted the Abilene Eagles out of title contention. Facing doubts and personal challenges both on and off the field, it takes the guidance of their team chaplain and a surrogate father figure for the players to realize what they can achieve when they stand united.

 We hope to see you there!
