Tad and Sara reunite when she makes a discovery about King Midas' necklace. Millionaire Jack Rackham kidnaps Sara to try to find out the location of the separate parts of the necklace. This forces Tad and the Mummy of Paititi to embark on a desperate search to find and rescue Sara. The movie starts at noon on July 14th and is rated PG.

Children are welcome to borrow one of our “cars” while they enjoy the movie. PCPL cars will be available on a first come, first served basis, so be sure to arrive on time.


Our goal is to provide families with opportunities to introduce children to reading and language in a fun and interactive manner. Storytime attendance helps improve and reinforce early literacy skills.

Family Storytime typically lasts about 45 minutes and includes stories, flannel boards, fingerplays, rhymes, movement, songs and a related craft or activity. Ages 0-Kindergarten welcome.
