JAMESTOWN, N.Y. – Prendergast Library will participate Monday, Feb. 14, in “Snapshot NY: A Day in the Life of a Library,” a statewide initiative organized by the New York Library Association to document how busy and essential libraries are.    

“Any activity that day such as visiting the library, calling with a question, or using the online catalog will be counted,” said Catherine Way, director of the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System and Prendergast Library.

Staff members also plan to take pictures of library use and ask visitors to fill out a brief form explaining what the library means to them or how it has made a difference in their life. 

Libraries have been asked to choose one day between Feb. 13 and Feb. 19 and keep track of how many people visit, use public computers, ask reference questions, and participate in programs, plus the total circulation for the day and number of hits the library’s Web site receives.

Australian Legal Drama Set For Jackson Center

JAMESTOWN – The Robert H. Jackson Center will screen “Breaker Morant” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 16, as the third in its series of legal movies recommended by the American Bar Association.

This 1980 winner of several Australian Academy Awards is rated PG and runs 107 minutes.

It is a drama based on a true story of three Australian lieutenants who are court martialed for shooting prisoners as a way of turning attention away from war crimes committed by their superiors. In the courtroom, the defense puts up a stronger fight than expected.

The film is based on a play by Kenneth G. Ross and directed by Bruce Beresford. The cast includes Edward Woodward, Jack Thompson, John Waters, Bryan Brown, Charles Tingwell, Vincent Ball and Lewis Fitz-Gerald.

It received 3 ½ stars in Leonard Maltin’s 2011 Movie Guide.
