Welcome February?

I think that we need more reasons to smile, perhaps more than ever this month, so let's all participate in Random Acts of Kindness Week from 2/12-2/18.

Random Acts of Kindess Week #RAKWeek2017 is an annual opportunity to unite through kindness. Formally recognized in 1995, this seven-day celebration demonstrates that kindness is contagious. It all starts with one act - one smile, one coffee for a stranger, one favor for a friend. It's an opportunity for participants to leave the world better than they found it and inspire others to do the same.-- RAK website

I'm confident that you, my kind and creative readers, will have your own fantastic ideas about how to spread a little kindness this month. Take a peek at this quick video for more info and to join me in #RAKWeek2017!

The Philadelphia Story I'm pretty excited about this month's local film offerings! The Newport Public Library's Leading Ladies matinee series honors Katherine Hepburn and Bette Davis this month with The Philadelphia Story on 2/3 and Phone Call From A Stranger on 2/17. Splash is the Library's February family pick on 2/23.

Naledi_ A Baby Elephant_s Tale If you want to "view-up" for the Academy Awards this month, you won't have to go any further than our own Jane Pickens Theater. In case you missed it, (like me)
Manchester By The Sea returns from 2/3-2/9, then Moonlight debuts on 2/10 and runs through 2/16. Oscar Shorts 2017, Live Action will be screened from 2/17-2/22 and Oscar Shorts 2017, Animation will run alongside from 2/28-2/23.
