Everything, Everything


Friday Flicks
Looking for something to do on a Friday morning? The Lincoln Public Library is showing Everything, Everything on September 22nd at 10:00 AM on the big screen in the Program Room.

What if you couldn't touch anything in the outside world? Never breathe in the fresh air, feel the sun warm your face...or kiss the boy next door? "Everything, Everything" tells the unlikely love story of Maddy, a smart, curious and imaginative 18-year-old who due to an illness cannot leave the protection of the hermetically sealed environment within her house, and Olly, the boy next door who won't let that stop them. Maddy is desperate to experience the much more stimulating outside world, and the promise of her first romance. Gazing through windows and talking only through texts, she and Olly form a deep bond that leads them to risk everything to be together...even if it means losing everything. (PG-13, 96 min.)

Monthly Book Discussion
The Lincoln Public Library hosts a book discussion group that meets on the last Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM in the Program Room. All are welcome to attend. On September 28th we will be discussing Hidden Figures : the American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee Shetterly.

The phenomenal true story of the black female mathematicians at NASA at the leading edge of the feminist and civil rights movement, whose calculations helped fuel some of America's greatest achievements in space--a powerful, revelatory contribution that is as essential to our understanding of race, discrimination, and achievement in modern America as Between the World and Me and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
