Is Pangea Day Coming to Your Library?

In a world where people are often divided by borders, difference, and conflict, it's easy to lose sight of what we all have in common. Pangea Day seeks to overcome that -- to help people see themselves in others -- through the power of film.

On May 10, 2008 -- Pangea Day -- sites in Cairo, Kigali, London, Los Angeles, Mumbai, and Rio de Janeiro will be linked to produce a 4-hour program of powerful films, visionary speakers, and uplifting music. The program will be broadcast live to the world through the Internet, television, digital cinemas, and mobile phones.

Pangea is the name of the original super-continent which contained all the world's land mass before the continents started splitting apart 250 million years ago. We're launching Pangea Day with the vision that the people of the world can begin to overcome their divisions, and that the power of film can help make it possible.

Movies can't change the world. But the people who watch them can. I'm hosting a party at my home, why not consider having your library host one too?

Sushi Class

This was made by a person who attended because of the great time she had! Tat's what web 2.0 is all about'

"I was late getting home - it was hours past when I usually try to eat supper. I was slogging through my list of things to do and stopped by the library (which was on the list). Annoyed at having to take time to (ah hem) run to the ladies', I glanced into the class/community room on the way and noticed it was set up for the sushi class...the one I'd forgotten I'd signed up for. I had SO much fun :D"
