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.




Book DiscussionKindred
The Lincoln Public Library hosts a book discussion group that meets on the last Thursday o feach month at 6:30 PM in the Program Room. All are welcome to attend. On December 18, we will be discussing Kindred by Octavie E. Butler.

Dana, a modern black woman, is celebrating her twenty-sixth birthday with her new husband when she is snatched abruptly from her home in California and transported to the antebellum South. Rufus, the white son of a plantation owner, is drowning, and Dana has been summoned to save him. Dana is drawn back repeatedly through time to the slave quarters, and each time the stays grow longer, more arduous, and more dangerous until it is uncertain whether or not Dana's life will end, long before it has a chance to begin.
