Stretching our Imaginations: An Update from The Community Library @ The Community Library Livestream
6:00 pm
This year has stretched our imaginations. Here at The Community Library, our operations have evolved creatively each day in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic: From a curbside service to virtual programs to face masks, we have adapted practices and exercised flexibility to keep our community connected to ideas and to each other, and we have seen how our community has responded to the notion that we must all take care of each other. Join The Community Library’s staff and board as we share what we’ve done this year to stay open and operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each department will share details about what has changed–from how to check out and return books, to our virtual programs, to spaces dedicated to solitude and studying–and how we foresee our operations evolving as we move into the winter months. We’ll also take you into the Library’s spaces, so if you haven’t been able to visit the Library, Gold Mine stores, or Regional History Museum this year, you’ll have a chance to see our completed renovation and adjusted operations that are meant to serve you. We are grateful to you for your support, and we look forward to a healthy and hopeful ...

SVMoA Film Screening - Jimmy Carter: Rock & Roll President (Hailey Screening) @ Liberty Theatre | Ketchum | Idaho | United States
7:00 pm
If it hadn’t been for a bottle of scotch and a late-night visit from musician Gregg Allman, Jimmy Carter might never have been elected the 39th President of the United States. The documentary charts the mostly forgotten story of how Carter, a lover of all types of music, forged a tight bond with musicians Willie Nelson, the Allman Brothers, Bob Dylan, and others. Low on campaign funds and lacking in name recognition, Carter relied on support from these artists to give him a crucial boost in the Democratic primaries. Once Carter was elected, the musicians became frequent guests in the White House. The surprisingly significant role that music played throughout Carter’s life and in his work becomes a thread in this engaging portrait of one of the most enigmatic Presidents in American history. Featuring: Jimmy Carter, Madeleine Albright, Bono, Garth Brooks, Jimmy Buffett, Chip Carter, Rosanne Cash, Bishop Michael Curry, Bob Dylan, Chuck Leavell, Willie Nelson, Nile Rodgers, Paul Simon, Trisha Yearwood, Andrew Young. RUN TIME: 1 HOUR 36 MINUTES THIS FILM SCREENING TAKES PLACE AT THE LIBERTY THEATRE, HAILEY AT 7 PM. NOTE: SVMoA is screening films in 2020 at the Liberty Theatre in Hailey on the first Wednesdays of ...
