The final installment of the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy will be shown at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Downtown Library. That branch also will host a “Hobbit” lock-in Saturday.

“Hobbit” parties also are scheduled at the Capitol Hill, Del City and Southern Oaks branches throughout the remainder of the month. The Bell Isle and Midwest City branches will host “Hobbit” scavenger hunts. Four branches are hosting drawing contests this month.

“It's something we plan on doing more of in the future,” Williams said. “The attendance at the various events has been very good. In Hollywood young adult literature is where it's at right now.”
