What's new at the Library?

Science at the Cinema - Dallas Buyers Club & Dr. Stacey Rizza on Sept 24th

The Library and Rochester Civic Theatre are screening a series of films followed by lively presentations from notable science and technology experts that we're calling "Science at the Cinema". Each film is used as a jumping-off point for a speaker to introduce current research or technological advances in a manner that engages popular culture audiences.

Join us for our first film Dallas Buyers Club at 5:30pm on Wednesday, September 24th at the Rochester Civic Theater (across the street from the library) followed by dinner and a presentation and Q & A with Dr. Stacey Rizza, head of Mayo's HIV Clinic.
