My Favorite Films - NEBRASKA
The Forest Lodge Library continues its My Favorite Films series on Thursday March 13th at 6:30 p.m. with a screening of a film that was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director, Best Supporting Actress, Best Cinematography and Best Original Screenplay: Nebraska.
Bruce Dern as grizzled, cantankerous and alcohol-addled Woody Grant receives a sweepstakes letter in the mail and, not only believes he’s actually won a million dollars, but, determines that he’ll travel the 900 miles to pick it up in person, on foot if he has to. One of his sons opts to travel with him, and, off they go into a yonder that includes Woody’s Nebraska hometown, where old entanglements remain, along with a new interest in the “millionaire.”
"Nebraska is full of complicated people marked by flaws and failures, mistakes and regrets; they can be selfish bastards, too. It often feels as though Payne (the film’s director) is trying to strip away the cliché that the region is populated exclusively by hardworking, decent hearted types, But for all the cragginess Woody exudes with his etched face and mess of white hair, he has also inspired a great deal of love in this director. The film's starkly beautiful final images have a poignancy that might leave a lump in your throat.” Christy Lemire for RogerEbert.com, 11/15/2013
21st Century Skills 2014
We are long past the dawn of the internet age. With each passing year, access to more resources and services is moved on-line. 21st Century essentials like an email address and internet navigational know-how are minimum basic requirements to accomplish just about anything.
In a continuation of a program begun in 2013, the Forest Lodge Library will offer 21st Century Skills classes on the first Saturday of every month, for an hour, right after the library closes for the day. (3:00 most of the year, 4:00 in summer months.) Need some help figuring out how to check out library ebooks on your device? Need some help configuring or updating your device? Need to set up an email address and learn some internet navigation basics, or interested in learning how to post your photos to Facebook? We can help with any and all of that!
Classes are “open format” so feel welcome to bring your device…or any questions you have…to any session. Public access computers will also be available for patron use. Yulia Welk functions as “instructor” and she is a skilled, knowledgeable and patient human being!
There is no need to register for these classes, just show up. There is no charge for participate.
There's something new at the library!
