COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Movie On The Lawn is the final party for the Aflac Vacation Reading Program and is Part of an Effort to Provide New Community-Based Entertainment, supported by the ‘Redbox: Outside the Box' Initiative

Library staff at the Chattahoochee Valley Libraries have dug up a great way to end this year's Aflac Vacation Reading Program… and they're doing so with help from a new partner: Redbox.

A free movie on the lawn event, featuring entertainment, jump houses, refreshments and a screening of the family classic The Land Before Time will take place on Friday, July 19 on the front lawn of the Columbus Public Library, 3000 Macon Road. Jump houses will be available starting at 7 p.m., with entertainment provided by award-winning clown and juggler Lew-E starting at 7:30 p.m. The movie will start at sundown.

The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be available for purchase, and families are invited to bring a blanket and join us for the fun.

The Movie on the Lawn is the final event for this year's Aflac Vacation Reading Program. This summer, several thousand children and teens have completed the reading requirements and have been entered in contests to win Kindles, mini iPads and more.

This year's final event is the product of a special partnership with Redbox, which selected the Chattahoochee Valley Libraries to participate in its community relations initiative called "Outside the Box." In partnership with local libraries, "Outside the Box" empowers neighborhood leaders to create unique public entertainment experiences that bring people together to strengthen their communities.

For more information about this year's event, visit cvlga.org or call 706-243-2669.
