This week at the library...

MONDAY
Central Library, 7:00 p.m.

Documentary
EIGHT DAYS A WEEK
Academy Award-winner Ron Howard’s authorized and highly anticipated documentary feature film about The Beatles’ phenomenal early career. Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years is based on the first part of The Beatles’ career (1962-1966) – the period in which they toured and captured the world’s acclaim.

This film explores their inner workings – how they made decisions, created their music, and built their collective career together – while, exploring The Beatles’ extraordinary and unique musical gifts and their remarkable, complementary personalities. We see them from the days of The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966.

She will survey current robotics projects and possible future developments in the field of robotics.
