Find the Hate you Give at Chippawa library

Membership has its privileges. For those of you with your very own Library card, you know what a fabulous treasure trove of materials, digital resources, programs and space your Library has to offer. This brings me to highlight even more great things Library cardholders can receive through our reciprocal borrowing. Niagara Falls Public Library has entered into a reciprocal borrowing agreement with Fort Erie, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Pelham, Thorold and Welland Public Libraries. This agreement permits Niagara Falls Public Library cardholders to get a free library card from these libraries and borrow items from their collection. Cardholders from these libraries are also eligible to get a free library card from Niagara Falls Public Library. To get started you must present a valid library card from your servicing library, as well as an official piece of identification with the correct name and current address, to be eligible for a library card in a reciprocal library.

Why not take a ride out to your Chippawa Library this week for some fantastic films.
From director George Tillman Jr. comes The Hate You Give, starring Amandla Stenberg and K.J. Apa. Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what's right. The movie shows on Wednesday, March 20, begins at 5:45 p.m. and is rated PG. Winner of several Academy Awards, Best Film, Critics’ Choice and Golden Globe awards is the film Slumdog Millionaire. Starring Mia Drake, Imran Hasnee, Faezeh Jalali. A Mumbai teen reflects on his upbringing in the slums when he is accused of cheating on the Indian Version of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" This film shows on Friday, March 22 at 2:00 p.m. and is rated R.

There's a lot more to modern public libraries than books and technology. Our motto at Niagara Falls Public Library is, "We power community!" Which is why we're always working to identify community needs that we can find a way to help address.

With an estimated 30 million visitors a year, the city of Niagara Falls has certainly enjoyed a long and prosperous relationship with the tourist industry. Other than the mighty cataracts themselves, one of the oldest and perhaps longest running tourist attraction in the city was known as the Burning Spring.
