Teen MovieCome join Anacostia Library as we watch great movie pick that is very shocking and suspenseful, and like any good Halloween movie, terrifying.

What would you do if your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere? What if you were forced to spend the night in a creepy motel?

Come see if this couple will make it through the movie alive to tell their story.

The movie will be shown at 6:30 p.m. in the Teen Area.
