Bring your treats and join us to enjoy FREE films at the Library. We're showing Jackie! 

Jackie is a searing and intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of the iconic First Lady, then Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. Jackie places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband's assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, here we see a psychological portrait of the First Lady as she struggles to maintain her husband's legacy and the world of "Camelot" that they created and loved so well.

Powerground: the Life and Breath of the World, by Trevor Carolan

Acclaimed Cascadian writers and ecologists rethink how we can win back the Earth in a time of Eco-crisis

Climate change, global warming, deforestation—with so many conflicting messages, has the millennial generation already heard enough about the environmental crisis? Many are confused and wonder if it has simply gotten too complicated to win back the Earth. This documentary film faces up to the sea of chatter. Narrator and director Dr. Trevor Carolan works with an international network of writers, ecologists and planners of sustainable communities. They join him in sharing critical ideas about eco-interconnectedness and the power of place—the concept Nobel Prize economic laureate Jeffrey Sachs argues is “the emerging meta-narrative for the 21st century.” These visionaries have stories to tell about their relationship with the land, showing how language and literature, songs and poetry, bring us close to the truth of a place and its problems. That place is North America’s west coast bioregion, Cascadia.

 

Roche Point Forest is part of the historic Roche Point Creek Watershed, a rich and unique wildlife area, and an integral part of the Cates Wildlife Corridor, containing old-growth Douglas-firs, one of which is used by bald eagles for nesting. Apart from Lighthouse Park, Roche Point Forest (a tiny portion of which has been designated as park land) is the only remaining low-elevation old-growth area on the North Shore. 

David’s focus for the walk will be on the area’s old-growth characteristics. The walk will begin and end at the library, and take just over an hour to complete.
