World War I Centenary
In August 2014, the world marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War, a war that set into motion many of the subsequent events of the 20th century. We've created a bibliography that lists some of the books and dvds that the library owns, both fiction and non-fiction.
Also join us for the following events:
WWI Book Discussion: On Thursday, June 19 at 7 pm, we will discuss Ernest Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms, which is his fictionalized story based on experiences that he had as an ambulance driver in Italy in World War I.
WWI film: On Thursday, July 17 at 6:55 pm, join us as we watch a feature film that is loosely connected with Hemingway's novel and experiences.
Epic World War I Film: Sunday, July 27 from 1:05 pm - 4:45 pm. Watch this epic film on IVPL's big screen--experience dramatic desert landscapes and great music. Rated PG, 217 minutes.
Movie titles are posted in the library.
