216 E. Main Street, Round Rock, Texas  78664 (Map)

The Round Rock Public Library presents the 2012-2013 season of Community Cinema. All screenings are free and open to the public.

Our first film will be Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27 in Room C.

This documentary follows Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Nicholas Kristof around the world as he and actress-activists including Meg Ryan, Gabrielle Union, and others travel to visit individuals who are working to bring about change for women and girls facing oppression.

There will be a drawing for a free copy of the best-selling book that inspired the documentary: Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.
