Reunificaiton: a special film screening
Crowell Public Library, Wednesday, March 29 at 6:30pm
Wednesday, March 29 - 6:30 pm

San Marino, CA, March 1, 2017. The recipient of a Special Jury Prize at the San Diego Asian Film Festival last year, Reunification documents the legacy of a family's immigration to Los Angeles from Hong Kong. This feature-length documentary gives an insider view on the contemporary Asian American immigrant experience, divorce and family psychology. Alvin Tsang turns the camera on his own family, cautiously prodding for answers, but fully acknowledging that the only closure he can get will be from deciding for himself how to move on. Reunification will be screened on Wednesday, March 29 at 6:30 p.m. in Crowell Public Library’s Barth Community Room.

The film presents a personal narrative that not only investigates the financial and emotional struggles of contemporary migration, but also offers deep insight into divorce and its effects on children, parent-child relationships, communication gaps, and the children's need for a healing narrative "after the storm." It is an exploration of many unresolved years that moves across different channels and modes, bending into labor histories and Hong Kong’s colonial trajectories. Engaging post-screening discussions have allowed audiences from all backgrounds to share their own personal stories surrounding immigration, divorce and family relationships, mental health, and filmmaking as a way of healing.
Alvin Tsang is a graduate of University of California, San Diego’s Visual Arts department where he also began his career as a film editor. He served as co-producer and post-supervisor for Ermena Vinluan’s award-winning documentary, Tea & Justice, about the first female Asian-American NYPD officers on the force. Tsang filmed and edited a documentary short profiling legendary independent film director John Sayles’s making of his film Amigo (2010) about the Philippine-American War. He serves as a video documentarian for the pioneering artist Meredith Monk and The Guggenheim Museum NYC, and has created promos for several of Michael Kors’s fashion collections. Tsang’s other films include the shorts Fish (2010) and Preservation (2011). Reunification is his first feature.

Come to Crowell Library on Wednesday, March 29 for an enlightening, cinematic experience with Alvin Tsang. Light refreshments will be served. (notparoo)

Climate Change for Future & Present Presidents
Crowell Public Library, Wednesday, April 5 at 7pm
Cal Tech’s Austin Minnich will present a fascinating program on climate change and its ramifications at Crowell Public Library, Wednesday, April 5th. Climate change is often viewed through the lens of complicated changes in weather patterns over the globe. However, the fundamental cause of climate change is simple and can be understood by everyone.

In this talk, Minnich will describe exactly why climate change is occurring and its effects on our planet using basic physical principles. In particular, how the science that enables us to drive cars, use electric power, and keep our food cold in refrigerators also governs why extra carbon dioxide in our atmosphere must result in excess heat trapped on Earth. Minnich will show why common arguments that deny climate change is occurring contradict the basic physics underlying technology in our modern society. Although the present situation is serious, huge gains can be made in mitigating the effects of climate change with existing technology while also positively impacting the economy, air quality, and a host of other factors. Acting now to employ these commercially available technologies ensures that our planet will be preserved for our children and grandchildren.

Austin Minnich is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Physics at the California Institute of Technology. He received his Bachelor’s degree from UC Berkeley in 2006 and his PhD from MIT in 2011, after which he started his position at Caltech. He is the recipient of a 2013 NSF CAREER Award and a 2015 ONR Young Investigator Award. Austin Minnich also runs the minnichlab (http://minnich.caltech.edu/index.html ) which focuses on understanding and engineering nanoscale heat transport for applications in the energy field like thermoelectric waste heat recovery.

Adults, STEM students and all curious non-scientists will enjoy this free presentation. Light refreshments will be served. (notparoo)

Celebrate National Library Week April 9-15
Crowell Public Library, Sunday, April 9 at 1pm
Crowell Public Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating the many ways libraries are transforming their communities every day through the services and invaluable expertise they offer. April 9-15 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers. Libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers. And libraries offer something unique to their communities, the expertise of individual librarians. Librarians assist patrons in using increasingly complex technology and sorting through the potentially overwhelming mass of information bombarding today’s digital society. This is especially crucial when access to reliable and trustworthy data is more important than ever.

Crowell Public Library is celebrating National Library Week with a plethora of activities for all ages. What can be more transforming than clothing? Adults coming to Crowell Library on Tuesday evening, April 11 at will learn about the history of costume, when librarian Alex Kosztowny from FIDM presents, Fashion: From Concept to Consumer and Beyond in the Library’s Barth Community Room at 7:00 p.m. Adults will also have an opportunity to transform a book by entering the Crowell Library BookArt contest, which actually begins April 4, giving entrants ample time to let their creativity run wild. Patrons of all ages will have fun in the Library’s photo booth, taking selfies and sharing them on Instagram. The photo booth will offer a giant passport and library card prop as well as a view from a “reference desk.” For the young and young at heart, there will be a magic show from Illusions by Allen on Saturday, April 8th at 2:00 p.m. Allen Oshiro won First Place at the “Magic Corner Battle of the Magicians.” All week long, if kids are caught reading a book in the library, they can earn surprise prize tickets, and they can also participate in a “Libraries Transform” Scavenger Hunt.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries across the country each April. Don’t miss this week of fun and creativity at Crowell Public Library! (notparoo)
