Family Night: Movies and TV Shows Based on Books

May 5, 2020

Grab some treats. Cuddle up on the couch. And read these books before watching them come to life!

In this time of isolation, we're all looking for new ways to spend time with our families.

Why not try a family book club?

Check out these books that became movies and TV shows. They are available as eBooks and eAudiobooks so you can read them before watching them while the library is closed. Or, watch them first and then, read them. It's a great conversation starter! Were your favorite characters and moments included? Did the movie or TV show add something new?

We've even included some titles that will be coming out later this year!

Movies based on Books

These books have been made into movies that are available on streaming services. Be sure to check out Hoopla for free movies based on books, like Wayside.

TV Shows based on Books

These books have been made into TV shows that are available on streaming services. Be sure to check out Hoopla for free TV shows based on books, like The Magic School Bus.

(This is a book series written by multiple authors. Be sure to look up other famous people!)
