This fall the library will host a series of film screenings for students and faculty throughout the semester. This year’s theme will focus on Politics in Film, with possible showings of full-length movies, documentaries and more on a variety of timely current cultural and political issues, courtesy of our Kanopy streaming database. (If you have not yet checked out this awesome resource–be sure to do so soon). And, if you have a suggestion for a film you’d like to see–let us know!
We might even poll screening participants to vote on the next film.

And…a film screening wouldn’t be complete without SNACKS. For our first feature we’re hosting a BYO Cereal Mashup. Bring your favorite box of cereal to share or mix, we’ll have a couple on hand. We’ll also provide diary, almond and coconut milk, bowls and spoons.
So, come out and support the film series, bring a friend, or encourage your class to attend. Guaranteed to be thought and discussion promoting.
See you there!
