Explore Your Dreams

Monday, November 5, 2018

In our modern, highly technological world we tend to make very clear distinctions between what we believe to be ‘real’ and what we consider to be ‘illusion’. We usually limit reality to our conscious minds and dismiss the realm of dreams as a place in which the remnants of the previous day are jumbled into images to be viewed as nonsense. Is it possible that our dreams are the portals to the spiritual realm? Do they predict the future? Do they help us solve problems? What did the ancients believe about dreams? What is said about them today? Join us as we explore these and many more topics in relation to the dream realm.

Presented by Anthony Palermo and James Dailey, M.A., associate professors of Humanities at Lakeland Community College. 'Dream Quest' is a course offered at Lakeland in the Humanities Department.

Information Literacy in the Era of Fake News - Library Tuesday @ Concord Community Center

Have you ever wondered how fake news stories get started? Would you like to know how to identify them? Lakeland librarians, Thomas Hyland and Megan Mamolen, will examine how the "fake news" phenomenon has impacted the current information environment. They will explore how and why fake news stories are created and promulgated via social media and the web, dissect actual fake news stories, and discuss strategies for identifying and analyzing an information source to determine its credibility.

Movie Night: Incredibles 2

Monday, November 12, 2018

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.

Library Book Club - HELD AT CONCORD COMMUNITY CENTER

Thursday, November 15, 2018

This month's book is The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, by David James Brown.

It was an unlikely quest from the start. With a team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler. The emotional heart of the tale lies with Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not only to regain his shattered self-regard but also to find a real place for himself in the world. Drawing on the boys’ own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest.
