The Murphy Library is showing Charlotte’s Web a 2006 film based on a story by E. B. White this Thursday at 6 p.m. Running time is 97 minutes and the film is rated G.

A little girl saves a baby pig, the runt of the litter, and names him Wilbur. Soon he gets big and is sent across the road to the barn with sheep, cows, geese and a horse. Best of all, a kindly spider there befriends him.
