The library is very excited to invite you to the first of our Lincoln Center Local: Free Screenings. “Act One,” starring Tony Shalhoub, will be shown at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15.
A play written and directed by James Lapine, adapted from the 1959 autobiography by Moss Hart, and filmed at Lincoln Center Theater, “Act One” provides an insight into early 20th century immigrant life in New York City. Poverty, severe living conditions and limited job opportunities with a backdrop of Broadway during one of its most prosperous periods, all intersect to create an atmosphere in which Moss Hart launched his theatrical career.
Lincoln Center Local: Free Screenings is a program created by Lincoln Center Education and hosted by libraries and community centers. It brings the best of Lincoln Center off its Manhattan-based campus and into communities anywhere. This program provides high-definition screenings from the growing digital catalog of the world’s leading performing arts center. For more information, please visit LincolnCenter.org/Local.
Introduction to Windows 10
Windows 10 is set to be “the last version of Windows,” so we’d best learn to live with it. On Wednesday, Jan. 11, we will start at the sign-in screen, explore new features and even take a quick look under the hood at the control panel. Participants can bring their own devices or use one of the library’s laptops. There will be two sessions available, one at 10 a.m. and the second at 7 p.m. Space will be very limited, so please register early.
