Lincoln news for Nov. 14
LINCOLN — Bridges will be showing the film “Hidden Figures” on Wednesday, Nov. 20, at 7 p.m. at the library. Based on Margot Lee Shetterly’s nonfiction book of the same title, “Hidden Figures” follows a group of African-American female mathematicians as they quickly rise through the ranks of NASA specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Goble Johnson crossed gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.
Library patrons can now check out children’s activity packs. The theme for November is trains. Maple Landmark is generously sponsoring these activity packs. Each kit will contain a combination of activities. For example, a kit might include a toy, puzzle, game, book, DVD and/or coloring sheets all related to a certain theme. These activity packs will be available for one week loans. The library has a generous donor supporting this effort, and are open to other donations of activities or funds to support the creation of more of these kits. See Wendy if you are interested in donating to this effort.
