Get in the holiday spirit with 'The Polar Express' 

On Saturday, Dec. 21, 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., at the Austin Branch Library, 5615 W. Race Ave., enjoy a free screening of "The Polar Express," the 2004 film by the Academy Award-winning team of Tom Hanks and director Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Cast Away). 

The film is an inspiring adventure based on the beloved children's book by Chris Van Allsburg. When a doubting young boy takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery that shows him that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe.
