We will be viewing of the classic film Desk Set starring Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy!  The plot centers around librarian Bunny Watson who is in charge of a corporate library.  As the company plans to introduce "electronic brains" -- computers, that is -- into the library, the staff must grapple with the implications that new technology holds for their profession.  Sound familiar?  This 1957 film illustrates that the ever-present theme of technology and libraries colliding is a perennial concern.


Please R.V.S.P.!  (Click register with email above.)  Food and snacks will be provided!
