ent_film-reel 10:00 AM Friday Flicks     Tell a Friend
    Not sure what to do on a Friday morning? How about a movie? The Lincoln Public Library will be showing a variety of films on selected Fridays of each month at 10:00 AM. The schedule is as follows:

May 15, Friday, 10:00 AM
The Theory of Everything

James Marsh's biopic of the celebrated scientist Stephen Hawking, The Theory of Everything, stars Eddie Redmayne as the famous figure. Enrolled as a graduate student at Cambridge, Hawking establishes himself as one of the leading minds of his generation, and begins to win the heart of Jane (Felicity Jones). After one of his earliest breakthroughs, Hawking is diagnosed with ALS, and he becomes less and less able to control his own body. With the loyal Jane at his side, he continues his work. However, as the years progress, Jane starts to feel more like a nurse than a wife, and Hawking begins to have feelings for a woman who is hired to care for him.

May 29, Friday, 10:00 AM
Spare Parts

George Lopez and Marisa Tomei star in this drama inspired by the true story of four undocumented Mexican-American high-school students who enter the National Underwater Robotics Competition. There, with the help of their teacher, the savvy young students test their tech skills against some of the brightest minds at MIT. Jamie Lee Curtis, Esai Morales, and Alexa PenaVega co-star.

June 12, Friday, 10:00 AM
American Sniper

U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname "Legend". However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world. Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to "leave no one behind." But upon returning to his wife, Taya Renae Kyle (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can't leave behind.

elect_computer3 6:00 PM  -  7:00 PM Timely Topic - Online Identity and the Modern First Impression for Job Seekers     Tell a Friend
    Greg Page, CEO of Merrimack Analysis, is back at the Library to present a series of Three Talks on Timely Topics.

Studies now show that anywhere from 85-95 percent of HR Departments research job candidates’ online profiles via sites like Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Today, most hiring managers and even college admissions officers use Google and Facebook to research applicants — sometimes with results that spoil otherwise-solid applicants’ chances. This presentation covers the basic aspects of online identity optimization, including strategies for accentuating strengths, avoiding common mistakes, and downplaying negative information. Along with recommendations about how to balance security concerns with the goal of presenting a comprehensive online presence, we mention techniques that people can use to passively monitor their online presence with minimal effort. Call 333-2422 ext. 17 to register, or stop by the Reference Desk

    Greg Page, CEO of Merrimack Analysis, is back at the Library to present a series of Three Talks on Timely Topics.

This program will be tailored for a mixed-age audience – great for parents and teens. Call 333-2422 ext. 17 to register, or stop by the Reference Desk.

elect_computer3 6:00 PM  -  7:00 PM Timely Topic - Succeeding on craigslist     Tell a Friend
    Greg Page, CEO of Merrimack Analysis, is back at the Library to present a series of Three Talks on Timely Topics.

From a simple, low-tech e-mail distribution list created in San Francisco in 1995, craigslist has grown to become a household name in more than 50 countries for people seeking jobs, information, and goods to buy or sell. During this interactive, hour-long seminar, we will cover all the key points related to selling items on craigslist, to include: account setup and management; ways of reaching various craigslist communities; avoiding common scams and pitfalls; pricing strategies; delivery and logistics plans; forms of payment; market research; effective use to photos to sell items; and effective headlines and product descriptions. All attendees receive a detailed handout with links to online resources containing even more information. Cost - $5.00 cash only, payable in person at the Reference Desk. Call 333-2422 ext. 17 for more information.
