Last week at the Chestnut Street location in Berea!

This is our last week in the building at 319 Chestnut Street.  If you are a nostaligic type of person, be sure to stop in and look around one more time before we move to our temporary location.  While you are here, please check out as many items as you can, and bring them back once we've reopened at the Berea Municipal Utilities Building (200 Harrison Road).  This will help us (We'll have less to move!) and will hold you over for the 2 weeks we will be closed!  We are observing our normal hours this week through 5 pm Saturday.  We will reopen in the Utilities Building on May 1st at noon. This is also your last chance to catch an independent film at the Chestnut Street library building!  On Wednesday, April 12th, at 6 pm we will be showing Drifters, an official selection of the Cannes Film Festival, the Toronto Film Festival, and the Seattle Film Festival.  Would-be immigrant Er Di is back in China, expelled from the U.S. for working illegally.  While in America he fathered a child, & when his American-born son comes to China for a visit, Er Di is barred from seeing him.  At the same time, Er Di becomes involved with a beautiful member of a touring Shanghai opera company.  Caught between his past & his future, his son's culture & his own, Er Di seeks bonds with both.  120 minutes; Mandarin with English subtitles.  The short film is Robot Boy.  A young boy is born to 2 very particular parents who improve his less-than-perfect human parts with robot parts & a remote control.  He spends all of his time mowing his parents' lawn until he meets a friend with an unusual escape plan.  18 minutes; English.  This screening is free and open to all age 17 and above.  Under 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.  The views expressed in these films do not necessarily express those of the Madison County Public Library.
