Blood Drive, Friday, Dec. 28th 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.

This event is on December 28th, 2018 at 10:00am

Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person — the gift of life. A decision to donate your blood can save a life, or even several – if your blood is separated into its components — red cells, platelets and plasma — which can be used individually for patients with specific conditions.This is the season of giving and what better gift is there. There is a critical need for blood during the holiday season. Please donate. The Red Cross will be holding a blood drive here at the library right after Christmas. Get a free long-sleeve Red Cross T-shirt when you come to donate (while supplies last). Sign up through the Red Cross website.

Brown Bag Film Screening: “The Overnighters” – Wed., Dec. 19, 12 noon

This event is on December 19th, 2018 at 12:00pm

Please join us for our once-a-month film screening and short discussion of a PBS POV documentary.

Chasing the American dream, thousands of workers flocked to a North Dakota town where the oil business was booming. But instead of well-paying jobs, many found slim work prospects and a severe housing shortage. Pastor Jay Reinke converted his church into a makeshift dorm and counseling center, allowing hundreds of men, some with checkered pasts, to stay despite the congregation’s objections and neighbors’ fears. When opposition to the “overnighters” reaches a boiling point, Pastor Jay makes a decision with shattering consequences. A modern-day Grapes of WrathThe Overnighters tells an electrifying story about the promise of redemption and the limits of compassion. Winner, Special Jury Award for Intuitive Filmmaking: Documentary, 2014 Sundance Film Festival.

This film is 112 minutes long. Please bring your lunch; the library will provide drinks.
