A bus breathing heavily at the station.
Beggars at the gate, and the moon
like one bright horn of a white
cow up there in space. But

It’s time for Cabin Fever!

Runs from January 15 – March 15, 2015

It’s time to put on those reading glasses or pop in those earbuds and snuggle down with some winter reading! The Library’s ninth annual adults-only reading program is underway with incentives and prizes. This reading program is only for FNSB library patrons, aged 18 and older.
Read or listen to ANY books that interest you, then write a sentence or two about the book on the entry form. The bottom portion of the form is your entry into the prize drawings, so be sure to fill it out.

Participating libraries include the FNSB public libraries (Noel Wien, North Pole Branch, and Bookmobile).
Remember, each of the participating libraries has smaller prizes throughout the program. Drawings are every 2 weeks. Then, ALL entries are eligible for the grand prize – a $100 gift certificate to the winner’s favorite local book store plus “something” from each participating library.
Pick up entry forms at your favorite library location.

Third Thursday Film Series for Adults

September 18

Watchtower (Turkey) – Haunted by a tragic incident, Nihat isolated himself by becoming a fire warden in a remote observation tower far out in the wilderness. Seher lives in a makeshift room at a bus station and has taken a job as a bus hostess to escape her own traumatic past. They go about their solitary lives until their fates collide. Beginning at first as muted antagonism, their relationship turns into tender domesticity as they settle together at Nihat’s mountain-side watchtower. Yet the weight of the past presses on the silence between them, serving as the ultimate catalyst in their relationship. (100 min; Turkish with English subtitles)

The Foreigner (Greece/USA) – A remote Greek village needs to grow in order to avoid being cut off by the government. When a foreigner stumbles into town, the mayor rallies the townspeople to convince him to stay. (17 min.; Greek with English subtitles)
