Friday Flicks
Not sure what to do on a Friday morning? How about a movie? TheLincoln Public Library will be showing a variety of films on selected Fridays of each month at 10:00 AM. Join us on December 26 for an uplifting story The Hundred Foot Journeybursts with flavor, passion and heart.

When the chill chef proprietress of a Michelin-starred French restaurant in southern France (Mirren) gets wind of a culinary immigrant opening an Indian restaurant just 100 feet from her own, her icy protests escalate to all-out war between the two establishments. It's a celebration of triumph over exile as these two worlds collide and one young man tries to find the comfort of home in every pot -- wherever he may be.
