The 5th Annual Children's Book and Film Festival was held from July 26 to August 16, 2019. The featured movies and books were:
July 26 - The Wizard of Ox
Aug 2 - Tale of Despereaux
Aug 9 - The Jungle Book
Aug 16 - Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
25 copies of each book, for a total of 100 books, were purchased and provided free of charge to attending families. Attendees were also treated to a free dinner, children's games, face painting and balloon sculpting. The viewing of the Jungle Book was canceled due to a thunderstorm, however, copies of the book were distributed to participants.

The 2020 Children's Book and Film Festival is scheduled to take place Saturdays, Aug 1 and 8 and will feature the Jungle Book and Dr. Doolittle.
