Enjoy a cup of tea and a film adaptation of a Jane Austen novel on Wednesday afternoons this summer when the library presents Afternoons with Austen.

Those who attend three or more screenings will be entered in a drawing to win a prize pack of copies of all of the films shown in the series.

“Sense and Sensibility” follows the story of two sisters, suddenly destitute members of a wealthy English family, who are forced to seek financial security through marriage. Directed by Ang Lee, the film stars Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Kate Winslet and Hugh Grant. PG. 2 hours, 16 minutes. The last Afternoons with Austen screening will be on Aug. 28 when “Persuasion” will be featured.
