Gujarat, a state in northwestern India on the border with Pakistan is less well known than the more famous regions on the continent.

It is primarily known for its textile industry but offers many other features including traditional lifestyles, fascinating temples and religious life, quaint villages and wildlife. The social life comprises various languages, customs, festivals, celebrations, food habits and dwellings of people living in different regions of Gujarat. We will visit tribal villages, markets, subterranean step wells ( bathing pools ) , a variety of religious sites --Hindu, Islamic and Christian , the home of Mahatma Gandhi , his headquarters during the struggle for Indian Independence as well as the Gir Lion Sanctuary , home of the Asiatic lion . The park also has the largest population of leopards in India as well as antelopes, wild boars, wolfs, hyenas and a variety of bird species. Presented by KLAUS LORENZ. Klaus is well known to those of you who regularly attend INL. He has traveled to over 80 countries and shared many of these adventures with us at the Library Program.

History Comes Alive - Elizabeth Hickock Robbins “Auntie” Stone
Friday, October 24, 2014
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Harmony Library, Round

Elizabeth Hickock Robbins “Auntie” Stone Presented by Joan Day Every elementary student in Fort Collins will shout out with confidence that Auntie Stone was a cook for the soldiers and had the first school room in her home. But Auntie Stone meant much more to this community. Arguably, she was singularly responsible for bringing culture and permanence to the struggling town. History books mention her being responsible for many “firsts” such as the first grist mill and the first brick kiln, but this nurturing and strong willed woman instilled in Fort Collins the beginnings of many social mores and a humanitarianism that remain with our community yet today.

Movie Night: Dracula: Dead and Loving It
Saturday, October 25, 2014
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Old Town Library, Community Room 1

Mel Brooks does it again with this send-up of vampire films. That Leslie Nielson plays the great blood-sucking count gives viewers a good idea as to what they are in for. This Dracula takes himself very seriously despite the fact that he's a bit of a klutz with a tendency to slip in the bat guano that adorns his castle floor. Staying very close to Bram Stoker's original story, Brooks also pays sly homage to other major vampire film classics, including Nosferatu. Run time 90 min. This film is rated PG-13, for more information go to imdb.com.
