Join us for a public screening of Chasing the Dream featuring an episode from our second season focused on community wellness, collaboration and the important role of public libraries in this work. We highlight the Groton HARVEST community wellness project spearheaded by the Groton Area School District and Groton Public Library. Natasha Thompson, host of the series and President & CEO of the Food Bank of the Southern Tier, has a conversation surrounding the work being done by public libraries with Pauline Emery, Director of the Southeast Steuben County Library. The episode concludes with a story from a community member imagining their own version of the American Dream. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Tompkins County Public Library Director, Annette Birdsall and important partners, including Challenge Workforce Solutions, Alternatives Federal Credit Union, Ballet and Books and Southside Community Center.
