CUMBERLAND – Each Monday, the Cumberland Public Library, 1464 Diamond Hill Road, invites the public for a free movie at 1 p.m.

There will be a new theme for the movie series each month, and in June, the library is watching films that celebrate horses.

The following movies will be included as part of the series:

• Monday, June 13, “Seabiscuit,” rated PG-13, 2003, two hours and 22 minutes. The true story of the undersized Depression-era racehorse whose victories lifted not only the spirits of the team behind it, but also those of their nation.

• Monday, June 20, “Secretariat,” rated PG, 2010, two hours and three minutes. Penny Chenery Tweedy and colleagues guide her long-shot, but precocious stallion to set, in 1973, the unbeaten record for winning the Triple Crown.

• Monday, June 27, “War Horse,” rated PG-13, 2011, two hours and 27 minutes. Young Albert enlists to serve in World War I after his beloved horse is sold to the cavalry. Albert’s hopeful journey takes him out of England and to the front lines as the war rages on.
