4:00 PM - 6:00 PMWinter Film Series: The Florida Project



Location:  Freedom Public Library
Contact:  Elizabeth Rhymer
Description:  The Winter Film Series consists of six movies shown on Sundays at 4:00 during the months of January, February and March. The movies are free and popcorn is served. Stay afterward if you can for a simple soup and bread supper and a chance to discuss the film. This is also free! We need volunteers to sign up to make soup or bread (also dessert) and we have a signup sheet at the library's front desk if you can help out.

The Florida Project: 
This wonderful movie was made using mostly non-actors in a seedy area on the outskirts of Disneyland and in a casual, almost plotless, way recounts the daily life of a bunch of kids as they enjoy the “carefree” days of summer. The main character, 6 year old Moonee (the brilliant Brooklynn Prince), is the leader of her little gang, and they have the run of the Magic Castle Motel, where their spontaneous play can make us feel almost nostalgic for past childhood summers, but which can also lead to trouble and danger. Willem Dafoe plays the motel manager, who cares for the marginal clientele, but has to be the referee at times in their quarrels and the supervisor for their kids. There’s no happy ending in a life like Moonee’s. Though the Magic Kingdom is not far away, the Department of Child Welfare isn’t either.

4:00 PM - 6:00 PMWinter Film Series: Lady Bird



Location:  Freedom Public Library
Contact:  Elizabeth Rhymer
Description:  (Please note: This movie was originally scheduled for 3/25) The Winter Film Series consists of six movies shown on Sundays at 4:00 during the months of January, February and March. The movies are free and popcorn is served. Stay afterward if you can for a simple soup and bread supper and a chance to discuss the film. This is also free! We need volunteers to sign up to make soup or bread (also dessert) and we have a signup sheet at the library's front desk if you can help out.

Lady Bird:  This coming-of-age story, while addressing every theme of a high school movie, quite successfully avoids most clichés and has been adoringly reviewed by every critic and viewer. The stars are flawless, especially Saoirse Ronan, the young Irish actress whom we saw in “Brooklyn.” Here she portrays the angst-filled teen, Christine, who has adopted “Lady-Bird" as her new name. Christine’s life is just a “disaster”: life in boring old Sacramento, constraints of a Catholic school, not being one of the cool girls or the rich kids, first sex experiments, and above all, endless arguments with mother.  Although Christine commits thoughtless and even cruel acts in her path to growing up, we have to forgive her and enjoy the fast-paced and amusing scenes, the memorable characters, and the knowledge and understanding Lady-Bird accumulates as it all works out. [Please note: This film was estimated to be out on DVD in March. If it is not, we will show a different movie. Check library's website for updates.]

Contact:  Elizabeth Rhymer
Description:  Freedom Friends of the Library present Guest Speaker Marena Harris with her program “A Girl on a Mountain- Tales of the Trail” on Tuesday, March 20th at 7 PM, at the Freedom Public Library.

In April of 2017, 27-year-old New Hampshire native, Marena Harris, set out on the longest walk of her life. Two thousand miles and six months later she had made it to the other end in one piece. The adventure still continues though, even months after returning home. Join her at the Freedom Library to hear stories of bear encounters to Giardia and 6,000 foot summits to mud puddles and how the trail has changed her forever.

This program is offered free to the public by the Friends of the Library. Light refreshments will be served. For more information 539-5176.

10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Dungeons and Dragons
Our 2017-2018 campaign of Dungeons & Dragons continues!

Games will be open to students in grades 6-12. Beginners are more than welcome to join in on the fun! If you want to stop in and just watch once in a while, that's okay, too.
 
We'll be using the 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons, and we'll have rulebooks on-hand for all your dungeoneering needs! We'll have supplies for everyone who wants to play, but feel free to bring your own if you have some.
 
For the sake of continuity in the campaign, it's important to try to attend every session. If you need to miss one or two, we can work that into the story, just make sure to let Chris know ahead of time.
 
For more information, talk to Chris, or email him at circ@freedompubliclibrary.org.
