MOVIES IN THE LIBRARY November 5th Ice Age: The Meltdown

Manny, Sid and Diego return in another incredible adventure. The Ice Age is coming to an end, and the animals are delighting in their new world: a melting paradise of water parks, geysers and tar pits. But when Manny, Sid and Diego discover that the miles of melted ice will flood their valley, they must warn everyone and somehow figure out a way to escape the coming deluge.

November 12th Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

After the events of "Ice Age: The Meltdown", life begins to change for Manny and his friends. When Sid's attempt to adopt three dinosaur eggs gets him abducted by their real mother to an underground lost world, his friends attempt to rescue him.


November 19th Ice Age: Continental Drift

Separated from the rest of the herd, Manning, Sid, and Diego use an iceberg as a makeshift ship, which launches them on an epic seafaring quest. They are challenged like never before to become heroes and do the impossible, as they encounter exotic sea creatures, explore a brave new world, and battle ruthless pirates.

November 26th Ice Age: Collision Course

Scrat's epic pursuit of the elusive acorn catapults him into the universe where he accidentally sets off a series of cosmic events that transform and threaten the Ice Age World. To save themselves, the gang and the rest of the herd must leave their home and embark on a quest.
