Library movie races to finish line

Posted on: July 5, 2016

Youth services librarian Bridget Wilson’s Summer Reading Program is called “On your mark, get set, read!” and to warm up those young readers the next library movie, Racing Stripes, is about a race to the finish line. Jeff Foxworthy, Snoop Dogg, Steve Harvey, David Spade, Dustin Hoffman, and Whoopi Goldberg lend their voices to the barnyard animals cheering the race on.

However, the story starts with a baby zebra accidentally left behind when a traveling circus leaves a Kentucky town during a thunderstorm. Luckily a farmer finds the little one and brings him home to his daughter. The farmer used to train racehorses and now he leads a quiet life on the farm, but that may soon change.   Especially when the little zebra (voiced by Frankie Muniz) starts to think he is a racehorse.

The Murphy Library is showing Racing Stripes, an adventurous comedy with heart for the whole family this Thursday at 6 p.m. Running time is 102 minutes and the film is rated PG. Call the library at 837-2417.
