Iola Public Library will offer several holiday season programs for adults in December.
Christmas Comedy Classics features the 1955 movie Were No Angels at 2 p.m. Thursday.
Three convicts (Humphrey Bogart, Peter Ustinov and Aldo Ray) escape from Devils Island just before Christmas and end up in a nearby French colonial town where they befriend a struggling store owner and his family by fixing a leaky roof. They intend to stay just long enough to steal supplies and clothes for a get-away on a ship in the harbor. But they have a change of heart and end up fixing Christmas dinner. Toss in a dubious suitor from Paris and a real viper on the loose, and viewers should be prepared for a surprise ending.
